I adore the Wishcasting Wednesday prompts posed by Jamie Ridler. She has a way of getting me to think in a way that cuts right to the heart of things. This week she asks, "What sign do you wish for?"

I am making changes. I'm deciding on the next phase of my life and work and, really, my life work.

The universe has given me little signs and nudges over the past few months that seem to say, "Yes. Keep going. You are on the right track."

I wish for those signs to continue. The little encouragements. The magic of synchronicity.

I also wish for signs of my next steps. I've come to realize we don't always know our full path right away. Sometimes it's more like finding our way through a dark forest with only a flashlight. We can see the step directly in front of us and when we move into it, we see the next step.

That's what I wish for. A sign to help me recognize the next step. Then another. And another.

I'll keep shining my flashlight. I'll keep moving forward a little at a time. I'm just asking for a sign that says, "this way."



  1. It seems to me that much of the time, life is like walking a tight rope in the dark. I can't see what's coming next, so I just hope that I put my foot down in the right place. Those little nudges of synchronicity are about the most I ever get, letting me know I'm headed in the right direction. And if I misunderstand what the universe it trying to tell me and head in the wrong direction, likely I'll learn something there, too, so I don't worry about it too much any more.

  2. Yes... keep going. As you wish for yourself, so also I wish for you.

  3. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

  4. Those little signs are so critical to persistence, aren't they?

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

  5. That's a great philosophy, Liv. You're right. We usually learn something no matter what.

  6. "Sometimes it’s more like finding our way through a dark forest with only a flashlight." Absolutely! As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

Me: A lens ball.

Him: What is it for?

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…
