Todays Wishcasting Wednesday question is:
"What do you wish to RECLAIM?"
once a young girl
heart bursting with excitedness
dove headfirst into her days
splashed like a mermaid in the waters of life
arose sparkling and shimmering
for all the world to see
golden sunlight surrounded her
and eminated from her
lighting her way
her fears were simple
spiders, lighting, fire
they changed not
her joyful embrace
of who she knew she was
then she grew up
from that happy girl
her heart now often heavy
her splashing a means of survival
her light dimmed
but her fears burned bright
and guided her every move
a fractured sliver of herself remained
Although I "freewrote" this (it just poured forth from my hands as I sat down to start this post), I thankfully no longer feel this way.
I have spent many difficult years working through reclaiming the very essence of Who. I. Am.
It feels very good, very peaceful and, on most days, very complete.
I feel not only like "myself" again, but like an ever better version of myself.
Perhaps even more like a "rebirth" has been occurring, of becoming who I should have been allowed to continue being, way back when I was a young, happy girl.
My wish, then, is to continue to reclaim of parts of me which have been lost, stolen, damaged, hidden, or are as yet unearthed.
Is there something that you wish to reclaim?
As you wish for yourself, I wish for you also.
