Grow, Grow,Grow Little Seed


It is Wednesday and while I haven't participated in Jamie Ridler's Wishcasting Wednesday in some time, her question today has prompted me to write.  Today Jamie asks;

"How do you wish to grow?"

I wish to grow in confidence

to disregard the naysayers

(many of whom reside in my own head!)

and do what I was born to do

be who I was born to be.


I wish to grow in self discipline

 not allowing trivial activities steal time

from soulful activities

which are most essential

to my living my dreams

(ah, see my previous post,

Less screen time = More guitar time!)

And to make those essential activities a priority.

that means significant daily time and attention

paid to my stories and songwriting, singing and guitar.


I would also like to grow some salad greens.
And how is truly the question. 
I kinda have a brown thumb.
Any suggestions?


This question/post also prompts me to share a video of my friend Andrew Queen which features some of my favourite foods and friends!!  My family loves his cd and it has made a great gift to others as well.   Andrew Queen:Just Down the Road


How do you wish to grow?

I can identify with your wishes quite a bit. As you wish for yourself so I wish for you also.

Yes! To grow in self discipline! It is so easy for me to let things distract me from what I need to be doing! As you wish for yourself, so I also wish for you.

No advice about the salad greens, although I hear they are fairly quick & easy to grow. But the rest of your wishcasting sounds so much like my own! As you wish for yourself, so do I wish for you as well.

I love your wishes--I relate to so many of them.

As Carrie wishes for herself, I truly wish for her as well!

Oh, these are good wishes, and the first time I posted, I was so excited to say so, I forgot to say: As you wish for yourself, I wish for you too.

Lovely and well put wish. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

Carrie, your wish struck a chord with me...in the part about time wasting when one could be engaging in soulful activities. I'm also trying to get better with that. As you've wished for yourself, I wish for you also.
