Are you using your power to make your wishes come true today?

Well.....are you?

I flagged that email when it crossed my inbox because when I go back to it, I am reminded of those topics which I struggle with: Goals and Motivation.

I guess, in a way, a wish can be viewed upon as a goal.

My job is very busy, very hectic, and very stressful at the moment. It's so bad, I came close to walking out permanently on Wednesday. I stayed the day and had a long talk with myself later that afternoon while I was out walking.

What do I love? What do I love to do? What do I love to do that fills me with joy and contentment? Well, that's easy: Photography is my passion. I love to be out and about with my camera, hearing the Universe talk to me, and capturing images to share. The job is a means to keep me on my road trips and photo safaris.

The job is not my life.

My passion is my life.

I have a small photo of a mountain at the New Mexico-Arizona border with a brilliant blue sky behind it. Every time I've driven that route, that mountain calls to me, and I want, I need, to see it again and explore it. (

I took that photo to work and wrote in blue Sharpie: Focus On What's Important.

What does this have to do with wish-craft? I don't know, maybe nothing. It just got me thinking about wishes and goals, and what I'm trying to accomplish here with SparkPeople.

More ponderings.

No answers though.

    Good luck on your exploration dream. I saw that message and I love it too. Yes, I think I am making my wishes come true - slowly but surely.
