Wishcast Wednesday


I have not taken part in Wishcast Wednesday for a while. Time seems to have been at a premium lately and mid week is hectic. But I am home today and hearing the news of Liz Taylor's death, made me think of Jamie's wish question this week:

How do you wish to sparkle?




If ever there was a woman who sparkled it was Liz Taylor. She was legendary and so full of life.


I looked up the definition of sparkle and found this:

1. (v.i.) sparkle to shine or glisten with little gleams of light, as a brilliant gem; glitter.

2. sparkle to be brilliant, lively, or vivacious.

Again - this made me think of Elizabeth Taylor!

There was also a quote by Henry Ford:

"Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait. The grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas."

I am tired of being tired, of being quiet, of being sluggish and careful.
I need to add sparkle to my life; to be more lively and gutsy. I need more enthusiasm, and a surge of energy! I need to find a passion and take it on fully. Life is to be lived, not just endured!
