Wishcasting Wednesday


































Every Wednesday, Jamie Ridler asks "what do you wish?" This week's theme is "What do you wish to embrace?"

This is only the second time I have answered her question on my blog, not because the questions are not intriguing, nor because I don't have any wishes, but primarily because I always feel like "What if I choose the wrong thing?"

This week, the answer came immediately. I wish to embrace uncertainty. I have been running from uncertainty for over three years, and it turned into a long range marathon in December of 2006. I am stopping now, and turning to face uncertainty, embrace her and welcome her into my life. Because, really, no matter how certain we think we are about our future plans, what we are going to do tomorrow, even today, that certainty can be swept away at a moment's notice. Life happens, jobs are lost, people get sick. Good things can happen unexpectedly as well. It's all part of the uncertainty.

So this week, my wish is to embrace uncertainty, and to enjoy the journey.

Sounds exactly like something I would think!

As Andi wishes for herself, so I wish for her as well.

If you realize you don´t like what you get, then you can choose again. :)

What you wrote about uncertainty resonates with me. In my journey, I've had to make an intention change from running-from-uncertainty to walking-with-it; it's a companion, not an adversary.

I also really like the painting--very evocative.

Embrace uncertainty is one of my favorite mantra (or one of my only mantra).
