Exploring Prosperity

Once again it's time to cast wishes with Jamie Ridler. This week she asks: What do you wish for your prosperity?

This seems oddly tricky because, really, aren't we often wishing for prosperity itself?

So, let's dive a little deeper and explore this question properly.

What do I wish for my prosperity? "My prosperity" sounds present- like I already am prosperous. I like that. And I think that's true. I have more than I need and that makes me fortunate. I feel blessed.

Often when we talk about prosperity, we are talking about finances. So, in that respect, what I wish for my prosperity is that it continues to come more from my life work (as opposed to from busy work).

I am trying to live more holistically- viewing my family, my business, my love, my friendships, and my home all as part of me. Hence my new focus on "life work."

And that is exactly how I wish to prosper. Wholly. Not just thriving in one area while another fails.

I wish to prosper in my life work. In my life as a whole.

How about you? What do you wish for your prosperity?



  1. As you wishe for yourself, so I also wish for you!
    Like you, I feel much abundance in the life I'm living - & wish for that wholistic balance!
    Live long & prosper!

  2. I like that idea of focussing on life work and balance, I can really relate to that. What you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also!

  3. I too like the idea of the whole of life being prosperous.

    As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you too!

  4. I like the awareness of already being prosperous, the gratitude that comes from that. And if your wish for your work, your "life work," your life as whole can only benefit, so as you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

  5. That didn't come out right, I meant to say that your success is ours as well, so I wish it to be so, for all of us.

  6. Thank you for stopping, Dia! I wish you abundance and holistic balance, too.

  7. Thank you, Jill! I wish all of us prosperity in our life work.

Me: Turning your face upside down.

My friend gave me this present for Christmas. I had no idea what it was. This is from my first photo shoot with the lens ball.

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?

What It’s Really Like to Have Anxiety

“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…
