Wishcasting Wednesday: what I ask for

Today I discovered Soul Biographies and in particular watched this beautiful film. An inspiring woman. Truly. Not the fake "ah, life is GREAAAT!" Truly seemed so happy and at ease. Light as a feather in herself.

On this blog, today is Wishcasting Wednesday. And today's prompt is "What do you wish to ask for?"

Well... I wish to ask to know what my deep desires are. How am I going to make them come true if I don't know what they are?

We are moving to Greece in a couple of months - in fact we are heading down there on Friday to visit kindergarden's and the "home to be" - and our kids will soon be wrapped up in a new language, making new friends and we will all be learning about living in Athens.

So a thought comes to mind. With the moving comes a chance to take classes. Language classes yes, but also something that might open other possibilities. Fact is though, I have no idea what area to explore. I so want to know what my passion is, or my "thing" is, or what I am truly good at... but in all honesty, right now, I have no idea. It's just all so scattered.

The trouble with moving around so much, for me, is that a lot of time and energy is spent on getting used to /getting around / meeting new people / finding the new dentist/ pediatrician / hair dresser that will not put me through misery. And then, usually, just as I start to feel that I am now comfortable enough in a city to explore me, well, it's time to move. I am hoping this time, the settling in phase will take less time and that I will be able to find what I really want to do with my life. What do I wish to do with me?
So that's my wish today; I wish to ask to know my purpose in this life.

What a beautiful place you're moving to! I wish you all the best & may you find what your true purpose and desire is in Greece!
(Do you believe in reincarnation? Any chance you've lived in Greece before?:)))

As you wish for yourself I so lovingly wish this for you also. And perhaps the Universe or God as you know it ... is already granting you a pathway ... Greece is all about desire, you will learn much.

Greece??? Oh my gosh, it's SO on my Bucket List of places to visit. Especially since I saw the movie, "Shirley Valentine"! Now, if I can only get over my fear of flying! LOL

This is my first time here, so I'm not sure why you move so much, but all the best to you!

It must be wonderful to find so much support.

You are an amazing woman, you will find your way, your purpose, your desire.

Greece is beautiful. I've not seen Athens (apart from the airport) but have visited a few islands. Sounds like lots of opportunities and a new life to explore :)

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you too, and lots of fun along the way!

I just wanted to let you know how much I relate to your last post about purpose and finding your "thing"...I feel as though I could have written it myself! Here's to our future discussions about this over a cup of coffee!

I can't imagine how difficult it must be to feel like you're constantly adjusting to a new place. And at the same time, how exciting! I dream of visiting Greece. Follow your joy and see where it leads you! As you wish for yourself, so I wish also!!

Isla said...

İ think now is a wonderful maybe perfect time for your wish and this move....Greece was the start of the journey that brought me here..i wish that you you find your True purpose xxx

What a fun wish. I think knowing your deep desires, your strengths, your passions, this is the key to success and happiness! One of the advantages of moving around so much is that you won't become too attached to a place or to things, but you are free to be yourself in every new place you are in. You will never be in a rut! I have moved many times and know the freedom that this can bring. IN Athens, you will be yourself more than in any other place. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well.

Sandra, what wonderful news that you are going to a warm country again!!!! And so close to Izmir.. All the best with moving and settling.
We are also moving, to Dubai! Mid September I think I will go with the girls and Arthur will follow a bit later...
I love Athens, visited twice, good vibe and because they had the Olympics a while ago, major city development for the good. Meryem xxx
