Wishcasting Wednesday



Today from Jamie Ridler, comes the question:



What is your greatest wish?


Each week Jamie poses a question that has us look deep into our hearts and minds. This week is no different.


As I thought about it, I realized that what has been on my mind a lot recently has been my upcoming birthday and what the years ahead will bring. Turning 50 was not difficult - I was getting remarried that year and had much to anticipate.


Turning 60 though is different. I had hoped to be retired and healthy. I am still teaching and probably will for another year or two at least. I have been battling health issues for awhile and am so tired.


So for my greatest wish - to enter my 60s with a positive outlook, with health, creativity, friendships and love, and a passion for living and making a difference.

From Diane Ackerman, comes a quote that resonates with me:
"I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well."

As Jamie says:
"You can be a maker of magic and a tender of wishes. It’s easy. Answer the wish prompt above on your blog. Support wishes by visiting other participants. It’s that simple. There is great power in wishing together."

What a lovely quote!!
As one on the other side of 60, I endorse your desire to live fully, deliciously, & with a healthy body! I'm a massage therapist, & have an 88 year old client that's in some ways more vital than those much younger - & she's also an artistic soul!! She's gotten weekly massage for almost 50 years (!!) & I remind her to take her magnesium, tee hee!

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you!
