Wishcasting Wednesday!




"What do you wish to begin?"

That's Jamie's question for this Wishcasting Wednesday.


Hmmm.Well I fell in love with the Goethe quote long ago, many will be familiar with…..
"Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it
Begin it now."


I remember being at a “stuck “point in my life when I first came across that little gem and it gave me a kick start. Since then, I’ve returned to that wisdom again and again and got myself started on many roads to adventure and fulfillment.

Lately, I’ve been feeling “stuck” again. I feel as though I’ve really got the beginning thing down pat… it’s really more the following through with and continuing on with the projects I’ve begun that I need to work on. Especially my music. There is this one project in particular that I began some time ago…. And it taunts me and teases me with the unkind words “You’ll never finish this”… and there are other projects too, scrapbooks, yoga newsletters for my students, paintings, greeting cards, things I’ve started and left after the initial enthusiasm has worn off (which doesn’t take long for me).


So my issue is that I’m a great starter, but not such a great finisher.
Today I wish to begin completing some projects which I have begun. One project in particular (the taunting one!) is a children’s c.d of songs and stories which I began working on as a karma yoga fundraiser project for the daycare centre where I work. Sigh!!! I really need to get this done!

First off, lemme say, oh, I relate :)

You can and will do it ... you did 100 straight days of yoga ... you can do anything you set your mind to I think.

Plus, it's a great project.

Go go go!

I'm wondering how this Goethe quote is in original and must admit, I've never heard of it. (maybe I'm not recognizing it)
Ahem, shame on you, my inner critic says ;)

I know this about finishing. Whatever it is a pair of knitted socks, a story, doing housework, I'm not good at getting it done. And I always love distractions.
So I hope you'll get your CD done.

Hi Karmacoy,

That's one of my fav quotes do. Anything with magic in it! I wish that you can become unstuck so that you may finish your children's CD of songs. Sounds great! Perhaps pretend that if you finish it, you'll be given a trip for two anywhere in the world. But you must finish by November 1, 2009.

I give myself deadlines all the time!
