With every wish that you make comes the power to make it come true.
But it is up to you to provide the work that will make it a reality.
Are you using your power to make your wishes come true today?
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. ( www.flickr.com/photos/-s
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.
No answers though.
