Claiming My Own Contentment

Once again it's time to cast wishes with Jamie Ridler. This week she asks: What Do You Wish to Claim?

I wish to claim my own inner peace and sanity. I wish to claim the time, space, and energy required to maintain my own contentment.

This may require setting boundaries. It will definitely mean making time to write because I feel better when I write. Writing helps me make sense of my thoughts.

It might mean saying yes or saying no. It will require the courage to speak up and say, "this is what I need right now."

As a people pleaser (and a mom and wife), it's hard to claim what I need. But there's this old saying that if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy, so I guess it's kind of important to keep myself happy first.

How about you? What do you wish to claim?



  1. As a mom I sometimes struggle with "claiming what I need" but I am you wish for yourself, so I too wish for you as well.

  2. Simply beautiful. As you wish for yourself, so I also wish for you.
