What is your love wish?

Most of us wear our Sunday best on line. All tidy and smiling. But I know we all have other areas, where we doubt, cringe, whine and grumble. Moments when we might kick a canvas across the room because it is not fulfilling our vision or laser beam the dog with our eyes because it howls letting us know its need to go out just when we are about to finish the recorded interview.
The B side of our lives.

Why do I talk about this? Beacuse when I first read Jamie´s prompt for today´s Wishcasting Wednesdays I thought I was already covered.

I have an awesome husband, two wonderful kids, a lovely mom, a sweet extended family and a ton of fun friends who made my impromptu cyber birthday partyyesterday a true success.

Cake time! Many friends were present through my laptop!
That´s it, right? What else can I wish for?

No, it´s not. I wish for a life I can love. A me I can love.
A me finally out of this sea of doubt, indecision and paralysis. A me I can consider worthy. A productive me.

I know there is only a way to get my wish and that is producing, putting action into my words.
Delivering, even if it means failing.
Choosing, even when it means making mistakes.
Offering my gifts, even when they can get rejected (ooooooouuuuccchhhh).

For years I gave up things for Lent. At Easter time I was tired, frazzled and totally ready to get back to what I had given up. This year I will be doing something different: instead of giving up, I´m taking up. I´m doing more, I will be of service to others intentionally, taking myself out of my comfort zone (and I love my comfort zone).

Put those two together and you will have lots of news here: my signature decluttering and organizing programme starting on March 4th, guest bloggers, a newsletter (there, I said it), an e-book (and again) and more!

Before I just faint out of sheer panic, I invite you to like my Facebook page for daily tips and fun facts and suscribe to this blog for in depth posts. *grin*

As you wish for yourself, I wish for you also.

You have been lovely since the first time I laid eyes on one of your posts, but you get lovelier all the time. I think of anyone I have known your constant stretching of yourself and trying new things is one of the most inspiring I have come across. I love you cyber sister, you are truly a beautiful soul.

First of all, (((((HUGGIES)))) just because. Okay now, you should know you are NOT alone in these feelings. I've been realizing lately how I've been forever looking forward to the time when I will be the me I want to be, and my life will be the life I mean it to be. And in the meantime, what am I saying to myself by thinking this way? I'm telling myself, over and over, that my life right now, just the way it is, isn't good enough. That the me I am now, is defective and needs fixing. And even though I know I have so many blessings in my life and am very grateful for so many things, this particular daily thought process contradicts that in a big way. This has really been hitting home with me, lately, and I'm determined to change this way of thinking, while at the same time looking forward to the many ways I intend to work on improving myself and my life. A Catch-22 for sure. And, hey! I am seriously looking forward to your declutter program!! XOXO

What a wonderful, honest post, Paula. I like how you've described our blog lives as wearing our sunday best. So true. And yet, it makes me sad that you don't fully love your life (TOTALLY understand, though). You are always inspiring to me with all you do each week and how creative you are in all aspects of your life.

Sending huge hugs your way. You can make your life more of what you want it to be! I truly believe that!

Hi Paula, I just jumped over from the Facebook page.
I think that no matter what you do you will be a huge success. I love visiting each week and am always amazed at how much you have accomplished and what you are willing to share. Can't wait to see what you do next.

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

I love the path you are on -the things you wish for I also wish for you -

Lovely! As you wish for yourself so I wish for you also.

Jennifer said...

My heart hears what you wish and echoes it. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you too.
