Wishcasting Wednesday--Into Focus

Today, Jamie asks us, "What do you wish to focus on?" for Wishcasting Wednesday.

Ooh!  I know this one!


I wish to focus on me and the life I want to live.  I mean really focus--give it my time and attention and love and devotion and energy every single day.  I do all right in short bursts, plan a little, do a little, think a little. But then I get sidetracked or distracted or--way too often--discouraged.  And the things I want for myself--health, a strong body, a career I love that means something, a clean house, a regular writing life--they fall by the wayside. They become neglected.  They don't get done, they don't happen or come into being, because they don't get the attention they deserve.

So... selfish wish?  I hope so!  We say "selfish" as if it's a bad thing, but it really isn't.  It's just giving yourself the oxygen mask first so you are able to move beyond yourself and help someone else next.

I wish to focus on me!


Edit: A flat tire is calling me away, so if I don't get a chance to stop by blogs:
As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you as well!

For all that Kim wishes for herself and the focus she desires for herself and her life, so too do I wish for this amazing person♥

You are so right Kim about the word selfish - let's instead call it SELF CARE!
