Wishcasting Wednesday: How do you wish to grow old?

How do I wish to grow older?  This is the prompt from Jamie Ridler Studios for this week’s Wishcasting Wednesday.  I wish to grow older with mindfulness.  I know conflict will come, challenges, and loss.  This is what makes life distinctively different from fantasy.  But my hope and, yes, my wish is that I can face what comes…the ugly and the beautiful….with mindfulness.

What does mindfulness mean to me?  It means being in the present moment….genuine and deliberate.  This is where creativity happens for me.  I might enjoy thinking on the future or reminiscing on the past…and there is nothing wrong with that, but I want to do that out of choice, not because I can’t handle what is in front of me.  I chose to make my every moment as alive as possible….because we really don’t know if that will be for another year, decade…or simply just for another minute.  So for every moment I am blessed with, I choose to live it FULLY….kicking, screaming, laughing, hugging, listening, sharing, being… ME.

    I got your message on my blog and zoomed on over here to check out your specs! They are lovely! Let’s make a deal – if we should ever happen to meet in person, let’s don our shades and go out shopping. Just the idea of it makes me giggle!
