Wishcast Wednesday...


Jamie, our Shepherdess has asked another thought provoking question this morning..."what do you wish to stretch?"
The first thing that jumped to mind was..at the moment I am stretched way too thin in many ways. I have not been an attentive blogger this last week or so....I am sorry..it pains me to pop in late to a post a comment. Please have patience with me. I have children coming at 6:30 am every day..only for a hour and a half..then later in the afternoon every day. I am with three other wonderful women putting together the Ning group I mentioned yesterday. We have an unexpectedly wonderful 60+ members!! I'm so thrilled and trying to keep up. What an amazing group of artists!! I am painting like a crazy..fun crazy! School started last week and I am filled with joy getting up with all the Mamas I have not seen in so long! I have taken a bit of time to work in Nonni's class and hope to offer services to Fox's when needed. The website should be up and ready for me to load graphics and products sometime this week too. Pant, pant, pant...all wonderful, good things..I am loving it. It is busy bliss!!
But..when I realized it was Wednesday..I almost skipped this...I needed this. Every week Jamie makes me slow down and think about something important. In my hyper focus to get the ball rolling this Fall - ok several balls rolling and plates spinning...I have had a hard time stopping and just breathing..without guilt. So what do I need to stretch? I need to stop and do my yoga, walk without purpose, tootle to the library or around Tubbs Hill with my camera...I need to stretch my relaxing and meditation..I need to breathe a bit more and relax. So there it is, I said it..I need to stretch my relaxation time!! What do you need to stretch this week?
Namaste, Sarah

Oh! I love you. Yes, stretched too thin! Go draw a witchy who has been stretched too thin with her cat reacting to her with a case of the fat tale and back all arched.

Yes, go do it now because I'm telling you it will sell like crazy!

I love you, did I tell you that?

As Sarah wishes for herself, so I lovingly and with intention wish for her also!

Stretch your time in breathing deep! So as Sarah wishes for herself, I wish for her also. (And for every human being on earth, it's so important to take time to relax, modern people are so disconnect from what's called the dreamtime)

Hi Sarah,

I can relate to stretching yourself too thin. I get involved in all sorts of work, play and community things. Congrats on forming your Ning group. 60+ is a lot of members! Great work. I'm glad you stretched for that. Here's to wishing you much relaxation and meditation.

As Sarah wishes, I wish for her also.

One of Snap's Rules: Take 15 minutes everyday (doesn't matter when), turn off the radio, tv, etc. Sit. BE alone with yourself. Amazing how much it will relax you. Recharge the batteries.

Walking is good, too!

Wow-lots going on in your life! You do need to make time for you. No rush to get back to me, I'm so busy with moving, I don't have time for promoting my art.
Relax

When the stretching becomes all you have, it can be a stretch just to allow yourself to relax.

As Sarah wishes for herself, I wish for her, too.

Ahhh...how many of us need exactly this sort of stretching.

ENOUGH already with the spreading ourselves so THIN that there is no flexibility left. ;)

One of the hardest things to do when you have so many irons in the fire is to give yourself time to step back and give everything a breath. We get so involved that we forget to rejuvenate the gray cells to go forward. So wise of you realize what you need! This I wish for you, too!!

Stefanie said...

Why do we do this to ourselves?

As Sarah wishes for herself, so I wish for her as well.

Now, go relax!

I need to stretch my writing time--not blogging time--but creative expression writing time. Everything else seems so important.
