This week at 52 Photos Project we are sharing our images of
WIDE OPEN SPACES
|I chose this image because the big sky and water, |
along with the kayaks and flying bird just call to me to explore this
wide open space!(even though I have never been kayaking, but it is on my "bucket list"!)
And for this weeks Wishcasting Wednesday, Jamie asks us:
WHAT DO YOU WISH TO TRY?
Again, as frequently occurs with these weekly wish queries, I immediately have about a dozen or so "answers" come to mind. I am beginning to find that often, the real, important "work" of this practice is to take the time to slow down my thoughts, explore my reasoning for what I am thinking, determine which really speak to me and ring truest for me at the deepest level and then cull out exactly what it most truly is that my heart is yearning/wishing for. This time, after reviewing the many things I wish to have the chance to try, I realize that this wish comes from not only my heart but my body and is foremost on my mind and of extreme importance.
I wish to (try to) fuel and honor my body by eating more consciously, healthily, energetically and naturally.I may have shared a version of this wish already...it has been on my mind for some time now. Overall, I realize that I do already likely eat healthier than I have for much of my life or than many others do...but for me, it is just not "enough" and I have very much "fallen off the wagon" of what I feel are healthy eating habits. Over seven years ago, I completely changed and improved my eating, basically overnight, and increasingly more so as time went on. The positive changes in my body-physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally, was immediate and profound. I know what it feels like to do what is best for my body and I know how to do it. And I know that I am not doing it. For some reason, that has not been a priority for me over the past year or so. And now, loudly, strongly and seriously, my heart (and body) are telling me to please change...please go back...please remember...please fuel me...please honor me...please take care of me...before it is too late.
So. Here I am, listening to myself, making this wish, setting my intention, and making the commitment. Some wishes just might happen to come true out of nowhere, like in a fairy tale...but some have to have dedication, information, and real action to come true.
THIS wish is MY command.
Part of my breakfast this morning:
a smoothie made with almond & oat milks, POM juice, strawberries, peaches, blueberries, dark red cherries, kale, spinach, dates and prunes! My body says "thank you".
Thank you for being here with me. Hope your week is radiant!
Happy Me-Laurie Z!
