Wishcasting Wednesday: What do I wish to rise above?

It is Wishcasting Wednesday at Jamie Ridler Studios. Today Jamie asks “What do you wish to rise above?”  

I didn’t have an immediate answer to this question. As I sat thinking about it the image of a pied-billed grebe running across the surface of the water to take off came to mind.  (This is an amazing photo by Jessica Yarnell and you can see more of her work on her blog. Pied-billed grebes are one of my favorite birds. I imagined them trying to take off with weights tied to their feet. It wouldn’t work at all.

2012 has been a year filled with learning and connecting. These first three months have been filled with the whispers of places I could soar. Unfortunately, I am trying to lift off with weights tied around my feet. The two heaviest are fatigue/exhaustion and lack of confidence.

My wish is to rise above these so that I can live the life of which I am dreaming. I don’t need to soar immediately but I need to rise just enough so that I  can more effectively work on cutting the ropes that bind these hinderances to me.

    Hi Shirley,
    I hope you’ll soon get rid of your weights, they’re just meant to block you on your journey. It’s useless baggage. (yeah, as I’m writing this, I apply it to me too! ;-))
    Thanks for your comment on my blog.
    As you wish for yourself, I wish for you too.
    Sunny hugs from sunny Bordeaux,
    Sabrina.

    I hope you are able to rise above your lack of confidence, and see that you can take off and fly.
    As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you as well.

    Sometimes we just need to rase one toe at a time as we get our balance for the the big soar. Maybe draw some feet and label them with your doubts with your big toes bing the hardest of obsticales when you get on them their tippy toes you are on your way… and as you wish I too wish with you.

    Maybe you need to just raise one toe at a time until you are on your tippy toes before you soar… see each toe as an obstaicale and the 2 big ones with the heaviest… then when you are up on your toes… dance like a ballarina and then comes the soaring… as you wish I too wish with you.
