Wishcast Wednesday....


Our wishcast Mistress Jamie has asked us this morning...Where do you wish to make a difference? Wow now there is a question. I did something different this morning..something in a year or more of wishcasting..I have never done...I went off and read a few of yours first. Not because I didn't know what to write...but I was curious. I was also fascinated by what I read.

I will be turning 50 this Fall..I am ok with that I am. It has given me alot of fodder for thought though. Who am I, what am I good for, what have I done that is good, what am I capable of, what do I want to come to me, what do I want to offer up to the world, my family, my friends? I will always be working on myself and looking to improve my parenting skills..this is a given for me. So the question is now..what do I offer the world. I do believe you can make a difference in a bigger way..I do. I am not out to save people or change them or to gather people to me for that matter. But I truly believe that we come into contact with certain people for a reason. That we have something to offer up from our hearts and experiences, that they have something to offer us.

I have been through some very rough times. Painful, life changing, down on your knees stuff. It has given me a perspective that I treasure. I could never have looked at the world as I do without these experiences. They sucked..but they also gave me something to work with..something to offer others..they gave me the me that I am now. I still struggle with life, challenges, pain and hurt. It is life. I am a work in progress.

So what difference do I want to make? I want to show others that there is a life during and after pain, that there is a path to being happy and strong. I want them to find the magic and the bravery inside them. I want to show them how to Let Fly with all the wonderfulness they have been gifted with. This is where I want to make a difference. What do you wish today? Hugs, Sarah

Absolutely, life during and after the pain. During the pain it seems like there may not be an escape, or an ending, but when we work through the event we become wiser, stronger, more clear headed than before. What do I wish today? I wish that in some small ways I could remind people I come in contact with that they matter.

Sarah, as you wish for yourself I wish for you also. Sarah, you have made an impact on my life, you have been nothing but kind and I see your strength when I am here, and the kindness you show others. You are a very giving and caring person, I know you have touched many people that you come in contact with, on and off of the computer.

Do you remember my own "down on my knees" post awhile back? You offered me strength through sharing of your own battles and resurrections from them. So Sarah, while I fully support your wish to be an example of Let Fly, you already have it within you, and you spread that hope so beautifully.

Peace & Glee,

As always Sarah you said it well. I'm going through some of that life changing, painful stuff right now. So you make a difference for me, as a kindred soul who finds the time to share a little of herself with all of us. :)
It is so good to be back online.
Blessings my friend,
Sherry
