Wishcasting Wednesday

Jamie at asks:

How do you wish to bloom?

I wish to bloom into the person that I wish to be: a green living, healthy, creative, natural living person.  I am slowly becoming that person, but it is ever so slow.  I almost feel like a flower that opens up each day then closes as the night comes.  By this I mean, I start out every day with the best of intentions, but often by then end of the day, I lose some of the ambition that I started the day with.  Hopefully, as time goes on, I will totally bloom into the person that I wish to be.  I will continue to work at this wish daily and as I have said in other posts, I will not beat myself up when I do not reach those goals. 

Thanks Jamie for having these Wednesday posts.  Not only does it make me think about what I want, but I love reading everyone else's wishes.

As I said above, I wish to change who I am currently to who I really believe that I am.  I am amazed at how some of the things that I wish to change about myself are the things that I never wanted to be growing up.  It is amazing how things change when you become an adult.  One of my facebook friends just wrote about hanging out her laundry.  I so want to have a laundry line.  This is one of the things that I resisted as a child.  I hated hanging out my laundry and longed to use the dryer.  I hated weeding the garden and picking dinner from the garden, but now I am planning on planting a garden that will hopefully feed my family.  I am saving scraps of veggies so that I can make veggie broth instead of wasting all those good nutrients.  I want to make my kids clothes and maybe even myself clothes.  I hated the handmade clothes that I wore as a child.  I also hated hand me downs, but I really need to start looking at consignment stores as a place to shop.  They have so many nice items that are barely used.  This will help by buying used and also help with saving money.  I also want to continue and increase the amount of personal care products and making my own food.  I also want to use the car less and walk or ride my bike more often.  Again this helps to save money and also is healthier for me, my family, and the planet.

I am trying to be a more green, healthy, creative, natural person and hope that some of those things that I resisted as a child will come back to me so that I can work on being the person that I want to be.



  1. As you wish for yourself, I too wish for you, Amy!

  2. A lovely group of blossoms to wish for! I can relate to desiring a more green lifestyle that nurtures creativity, inventiveness, the handmade and attention to details - isn't that what we are seeking? Honoring each other and the earth through our acts - making something with a specific person in mind, hanging out the laundry and capturing the smell of fresh air and sunshine in our sheets, knowing where our food comes from ...

    a beautiful image ... i can't wait to see it in full bloom :)
