What do you wish to say no to?


I´m a "Yes" person. A people pleaser if you wish.
When I read Jamie Ridler´s prompt for today´s Wishcasting Wednesday my Censor grabbed me by the shoulders.
"Have you gone MAD woman?. Are you actually going to say NO?!?!?!", she asked wild eyed.
Her strength was such that I had to take myself out of the house to answer the question. The busyness of the day at the car wash place distracted her enough so I could sneak the answers in my morning pages notebook.
I could also sneak in a coffee under Inner Critic´s nose. He (funny how I think of Censor as she and Inner Critic as he) is the one that has been saying No to me. As in "You can not go and have a coffee by yourself".
Unfortunately Censor got wind of my intentions once I was back home. I will keep my list in my notebook, ok?
This post is just to let you know it has been done. You´ll have to trust me on this one. :)

To read what other Wishcasters had to say, check Jamie´s original post.

Ah, I'm a bit of a people pleaser, too! I love how you have personified your Inner Critic and your Censor. It's probably easier to work around them when you can picture them living separately from you. I may have to borrow this idea!

Whatever it is you wish for, I wish for you also, dear Paula! Very interesting on the gender choices of your critic and censor. I have been under the impression that they were one and the same person within me. But now you've got me thinking....

I love your description of your Inner Critic and Censor - never have thought of them as separate. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you!!

You did much better than I did on this one. This is the first Wednesday I didn't post an answer in a very long time. Your post made me think a little bit more about why I found it so difficult.
