Wishcasting: Paths

Wishcasting badgeIt's Wishcasting Wednesday so the gorgeous soul Jamie Ridler is inviting us to cast our wishes into the universe. Today Jamie asks, "What path do you wish to follow?"

I wish to follow the path of love.  What does that mean?  For me it means to infuse love in my actions and words.  It means choosing words that will encourage and inspire, especially when speaking with my husband and children.  It means using a calm and loving tone.  (No bickering or nagging.)

It means doing what needs to be done (with love!) when it comes to serving my family, my home, and myself.  I've been changing my mindset about doing chores, looking at them as service rather than as annoying interruptions.  Doing the dishes and laundry are not fun (and I won't pretend they are), but when I focus on the result being a good thing for my home and family, not to mention my own sanity, then I can get through them with a better attitude.

By following a path of love, I think I can improve my mental well-being while also making a happier environment for all of us.

What path do you wish to follow?

Confirm Your Humanity

I type my email address into the box and click. Another screen pops up: “Confirm your humanity.” I check a box and it is done. Humanity confirmed. But I wonder what am I doing in my life today to confirm my humanity?

“People who need help sometimes look a lot like people who don’t need help.” -Glennon Doyle
I can’t say with any certainty that I am viewed as having it all together. I have, however, been complimented for my ability to remain calm or to calm others. In my days as a project manager, it was a strength often highlighted in my performance reviews. One supervisor actually used to mistake my calm attitude for a lack of understanding the urgency of the issue, until he learned I very much understand the urgency, but can’t address it if I get frantic.

During my application process to become a Hospice volunteer, the coordinator told me after speaking to my three references that she had never seen a single word used so consistently to describe someone. What word is that, I asked. “Calm. Every single person commented on how calm you are.”

Calm. That is a marvelous state.

Imagine how it must feel to be known for being calm and to hold a diagnosis of anxiety. It sometimes feels that my entire sel…
