Wishcasting Wednesday – Break

My thanks to Wishcasting Wednesdays for today’s meme

What do you wish to take a break from?

I wish to take a break from darkness, heaviness, exhaustion and discouragement.

It’s too easy for me to get sucked into sadness and regret and other people’s pessimism and gloom and doomage right now, as it’s been a long time since I’ve felt any tangible encouragement or evidence of progress along this path of healing my body, heart and soul. I feel as if many things that I have seen as movement toward good things, as positive shifts, are constantly being denied or questioned or simply ignored, and I have to remember that such happy things are so, are happening, have happened.

I have to reassert and remind myself and my husband that all is not an endless fall into despair, that on this pilgrim’s progress we are both making there are moments of light and happiness and comfort and even sparks of joy that swirl up like embers around a summer bonfire. Just when we’ve started to wonder if we’ll ever see the sun again, in our separate internal universes or in the spaces of our life together, the light does shine through to remind us of what we’re missing. I wish that we both might feel it and take a sunbath, together, laughing.
