It is Wishcasting Wednesday, a wonderful day when we can cast our wishes out in the world and support everyone else's wishes with positive energy.
This week Jamie asks: What rules do you wish to make or break?
The answer didn't come to me as quickly as it often does. Usually I have an answer to the question the instant I finish reading it. Today, I oooohed and hmmmmed while deciding just what this meant for me.
As for rules I want to break, there are two. First, I want to break the notion that income equates to an 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. job. In fact, I broke this rule when I was laid off two years ago and began a wonderful freelance career.
Second, I want to break the rule that hair must be a conventional color. In fact, I'm breaking this rule tomorrow. I have an appointment with a hairdresser and my intention is to come away with a pink stripe. It sounds like awesome fun.
As for rules I want to make for myself, I want to make a point to bring more writing, creativity, and kindness in to my life. These things make me feel alive. They feed my soul, improving my mental and emotional health. A little of these each day- that's my new rule.
One more rule: time outside every day. Even a few minutes can be monumentally restorative, like a vacation. When I am outside feeling the sunshine and the breeze and listening to birds chirp and trees rustle, the weight of the world strips away. In that moment I am just me, part of this amazing, beautiful earth.
