What do you wish to begin?

This is the question Jamie asks today on Wishcasting Wednesday.

I need to start a new bucket list.
As I have completed my list for 2009.
As some of you know already.
It was an awesome year. I traveled to Arkansas, Texas New Orleans. Alabama, Dolphin Island, & Tennessee. All this took 2 week in march.
The last thing on my list was the farm. And I so accepted the loss. And got over it so quickly. By looking at another one. And decided not to get it either.
I now have to continue,my path of happiness right where I am at.
I am learning more and more every day, on how to let my inner child out to play.
I came to the conclusion. "As a kid I did not get to play much. no fun no magic, no fairytale dreams.
So I am going to live my 2nd child hood for the first time.
I am drawing or painting every day now. And will start a journal of thoughts too.
My latest water color painting (above) is call the end of summer. I finished it today.

It is not easy for me to make wishes. As I learned to be content and happy with what I have for the sake of survival.
So do I dare to continue to wish?

Well I think my bucket list was a wish list so , "Yes!"
I need to find more things to achieve.
More places to visit.
More friendships to make.
More fun to be had.
But I will always be thankful for what I already have.
Have a wonderful day and remember to laugh and play.Photobucket

Finishing even one such list is a monumentous achievement. Now you are working on the next one! Way to go, and so inspirational.

As Grammy wishes for herself, so I wish for her as well.

We always need to keep adding dreams and wishes....I think that's what keeps us moving forward. You have such a great attitude. That's the best tool to have!

Wonder why you never had a real childhood, it sounds sad.
Childhood is important. I once read a proverb: It's never too late for a happy chiildhood and I think it's true!
So I wish you all the luck with playing, painting and laughing!
And sure: As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also!

May your wish come true Grammy. I love your painting, it feels really 'soft'. There's a challenge over at Inspiration Avenue this week called Summer - you should post it there.

Hi Grammy,

I love bucket lists too. Without them it's easy to get lulled into complacency and miss all the fun! Here's to a second childhood in adulthood. May your bucket stayed filled with wonderful adventures while enjoying where you are now!

Your bucket list from last years sounds divine. Did you enjoy all the places you traveled to?

Wishing you continued success in embracing your inner child.

Hi Ernie! you are such an inspiration to me and everyone around you, you have been truely blessed. I don't think you can truely be content with what you have until you have gone with out.
I loved how you had a wish list and completed it and now you will be writing another, good on you.
I for one have always though of others before myself and have not really achieved the little things I would have liked,like you, such as painting or drawing but you have inspired me to try.
