Wishcasting Wednesday: What do you wish to do one day?

Joining in again for Wishcasting Wednesday!  This week, over at, Jamie asks "What do you wish to do one day?"

As usual, Jamie asks things that I am usually thinking about.  This weeks question is pretty pertinent in my life right now.  Last Wednesday, I went to work only to find out that I got laid off.  This is the first time anything like this has ever happened to me in the 20 years since I have been out of high school.  I am a social worker and really believed that I was safe from cuts like this.

Even though this was only a part time job, it made a huge difference to my family.  I am trying to think of things in a more positive light!  I am able to get to be home for dinner with my family.  I am able to not have to feel rushed getting things ready for when my husband comes home.  I am able to get unemployment so I can actually have some income coming in to help with our finances!

The other positive thing that I am trying to think about truly relates to this week's prompt.  I am trying  to decide just what it is that I really want to do with my life!  I have a great husband and three great kids, but what do I want to do with my professional life?  How can I use my education in a more out of the box way?  I am thinking that I really do want to do something with art therapy, or even do something less clinical, but still something related to art/creating and how it can be therapeutic.  I've written about this before, and I still think that this is something that I really want to do one day. I would love to be part of a community that truly believes in the mind/body/spirit, not just one area.  I think that my social work career and my love of creating can be mixed to truly help care for ones mind, body and spirit.  I would love to be my own boss one day and again be part of a community that truly looks at the whole person, not just parts of a person!  Oh, and I want to learn to use herbs and aroma therapy as part of my career too!  I think herbs, essential oils and creativity can all work together to help someone have a more balanced life!

What do you wish to do one day?


  1. Lovely wishes. Art therapy would be cool :)

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

  2. Hopefully your lay-off will turn out to be a blessing in disguise as you transition to a new path. :-) As you wish for yourself so I wish for you also.

  3. I read your wish, I thought to myself, her lay off might be the first step in the manifestation of those things you've written about before. Nothing like getting thrown out of the nest to teach one to fly :)

    As you wish for yourself I wish for you also!

  4. Wonderful opportunity to take time off to think and plan. Then of course, get doing! :)
    Best luck on this new adventure.
    As Amy wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

  5. I hope this change turns into a fantastic opportunity for you! As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you.

  6. Oooh! I'm also searching for that holistic mind/body/spirit community. I *think* I may have found one online that will fill the need for me at the Goddess Guidebook - I'll be trying that out shortly, and if you'd like, I can let you know how I find it.

    Meanwhile, may this layoff be the best thing that ever happened to you in terms of new and amazing opportunities.

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

    (and if there's any writing, editing or proofing I can help you out with for the price of an honest testimonial afterwards, please just ask!)

  7. May this time be filled with lots of adventure and excitement for you as you seek a new path!

    As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you too :)
