Wishcast Wednesday...


Our dear Jamie has asked us today... What do you wish for your relationships? Ok am already crying....geesh. Tagged me today Jamie....I am struggling with this one ...a lot this last month or so.
I have such amazingly wonderful friends online...I love how we support each other up and check in on each other...I cannot begin to tell you how much these relationships mean to me... they keep me balanced and functioning when things are rough...and cheer me on when I have thing to happy dance about. They are in the truest sense of the word Mile deep friendships.
My relationships out here in the non cyber world ...some are good..folks I love and are there when I need them and is returned...they are loving and wonderful. But it seems this summer..those that I have to deal with all the time are busy taking advantage of my nicer side. I have been deeply hurt in the last couple weeks by a couple of folks that I have to continue to deal with daily...trust breaking stuff. I said the other day that I felt like my feet had been knocked out from under me...I got back up last week and had it happen two more times. By Sunday I just felt used up and gun shy...I wanted to hide...so I am crawling out of my hiding space today...breathing and trying to get back on my path and keep going..breathing deep and getting present.
So I guess my wish for my relationships this week ..is to understand what has been happening and why..to work through it and either form stronger boundaries or mend them. I need to find my way back to my relationship with my strong self and let some of the rain just roll off my back and quack. This week I wish to be a better quacker. Hugs all, Sarah

Oh oh oh one very happy note....I got my results back...all is normal with the pap and thyroid test..for this, huge happy dancing!! Despite the rain!!! QUACK!!

Glad to hear you are physically well! The rest will sort itself out I hope. Stay positive.

Linnea said...

I sympathize so much with this, as I've told you before. I wish I could come to you with a pot of tea and a supply of duck feathers. We could have a great time fashioning ourselves some quacker suits!

As Sarah wishes for herself, so I wish for her also. Huge hugs -- I think you're wonderful!

Boundaries are good. Set them! People are strange critters. Do what you need to do to survive in your world. We all do things perhaps we don't want to do because of some relationship we think exists that we can't do anything about. (Did that make sense?)

Quack, Quack and QUACK some more!

Thrilled with your test results!

Folks that do you wrong, well shame on them. Their loss of your friendship is just that their loss.

Sarah - I feel your words in each part of my being. I remember when my friendships were primarily online. People were shocked to know this was where I got my juicy connections because it looked like I knew a lot of people but really, I longed for friends like my online friends and here is the good news - I found in-life friends as cherishable as my on-line friends so now I have a healthy balance of the two. It is phenomenal... so when I wish this wish, I know, I know, I know exactly how both sides of the wish feel... and by the way, I love Coeur d Alene (I may have told you that before!)

As Sarah wishes, so I wish for her also!!

Yes, yes, YES!!

Laura said...

Wahoo! (Test results). Quack! (Relationships). And always remember, you are a Mental Swan!

Kim Switzer said...

Aw, it really sucks when people take advantage that way. But hurray on the tests! Happy dancing along side you.

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you as well.

clairedulalune said...

Oh Sarah, this is the first time i have popped over to see you in a while and I am so sorry to read about what has been happening with you at the moment. You are having a rotten time and I wish I could do something to ease your heavy heart and lighten the load. But on the upside, nice results! woohoo! and as they say, if you are healthy, you are wealthy! Debra's right remember you are a Mental Swan! You created that! you had brought such joy and that warm giddy feeling, which is so hard to come by, generously giving the award to people including myself in ways you will never know! Thank you so much for that! Remember when i recieved the Mental Swan award and said just take the swan part off my title? it soes ring true for me a bit doesn't it? LoL! As Sarah wishes for herself, I wish for her also, with all my heart! ((hugss))

Joanna Jenkins said...

Happy dance for you on the test results :-) YEAH.

I am so sorry some of your relationships are letting you down. That's a shame, really, and it's those people that are missing out in my humble opinion. Your spirit and heart is so good.

Stay strong and this to shall pass-- Or at least that's what my dad would have said :-)

I'm off to Ohio on vacation. I'll catch up with you again next week. xoxoxox jj

summertime dreams said...

Glad to hear everything went well and that you are healthy. I hope you have a better week this week with your cyber friends :) Remember karma, those that do wrong to the kind hearted will get a taste of their own medicine sooner or later.

{{{hugs}}} As you wish for yourself, so do I too wish for you!

PS - very cute duck! ^-^

The Strawberry Mallard said...

My dear dear Sarah....I think we ALL know how you feel...punched in the gut, angry, hurt, amazed at how we can read people wrong or be deceived....we are all here for you and wanting whatever you wish for ear lady!
Love to you, Nancy & Co.

Beverley Baird said...

You ended with great news! Good health is paramount!
It can be devestating when so called friends (and I include family here) knock us down and then proceed to step on us.
As Sarah wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

May your deepest wishes be fulfilled!

Sarah - Relationships are so difficult sometimes. I know this sounds trite but it will work itself out, you may not agree with the results but sometimes separating yourself from someone you care about is necessary to heal. Take care of yourself, you need to be strong for yourself and you can be. Your strength is one thing I think you underestimate in yourself. Have a lovely cup of tea, sit back and just give yourself time.

Sarah Lulu said...

Oh we really ARE soul sisters this week .....I wrote my wishcasting and then felt betrayed so badly I can't breathe!

As Sarah wishes for herself I so lovingly wish this for her also. xx

As you wish for yourself, I wish for you also (and for myself too!)

Sherry Byrum said...

Sometimes the hardest lessons, the ones that hurt the most make us stronger. I have had two relationships disappoint me in the last year or so and I found that the disappointment and hurt can turn into anger and anger can be a great motivator. Walk, walk and walk and feel the warrior inside of you rise up. Trust the Universe to show you the way!
I agree with you about the online friends. One I am thinking of, I believe saved my sanity at a very vunerable time! My online friends are often my source of comfort and inspiration. Many hugs,
Sherry

QUACK QUACK QUACK QUACK QUACK! Splish Splash in the puddle HAPPY! Wooohooooo, Sarah, that is fantastic, fantastic news. I can sympathize with you on the health worries. Thank God everything's working they way it should.

Ugh. Some people are just plain toxic. Schmoes. I hope you find a way to limit your exposure to them. Maybe they need a direct message. Good for you, though, for getting back up every time. They cannot dictate your life. You have other people, more precious people, to live for. You know, sometimes people say that online friends are bogus. But evidently, there are plenty of real-life friendships that are just as superficial and unhealthy. I was just reading that online friendships release the same oxytocins in the grain as in-the-flesh friendships. It's the sharing of opinions and ideas and dreams that brings people closer, something more intimidating to do face to face sometimes.

Thank you SOOOOOOOOO much for the beautiful ocean garden! I love this. So incredibly serene and blissful. Looks very Japanese garden to me, and I absolutely love it! I see you are cultivating more beautiful gardens, and your prints are heavenly! Love the whimsy in pen and ink!!! Thank you for your loving and heartfelt message. You are so very, very sweet. I hope you have a wonderful summer, too. Keep sane with all the kiddies. May the rain just roll off your back, and may you find plenty of things to laugh and dance about.

XOXOXO!
