Wishcasting Wednesday – Story

I am a writer and storyteller, and always live in story whether awake or asleep. My gratitude to Jaime Ridler for Wishcasting Wednesday, which today reminds us to write our own story and asks:

What story do you wish to live or let go of?

I wish to let go of the destructive story that I am so irreparably damaged in mind and body that all I can see or feel is filtered through lenses of grief and fear and pain and loss, and that all I can show the world is the anger and sadness I hide behind, foolishly thinking that will keep me safe.

The story I wish to live is the inspiring story where light shines through the cracks in my being, making me better than simply whole but also radiant, where I have the strength to carry a soft heart in a strong and healthy body, where I am courageous in showing myself to the world in both words and actions, where I delight in sharing all forms of creativity, where I focus on healing love and simple joy, where I always, always, choose truth and laughter.

Manic Monday – Times

Thanks to the Manic Monday meme for these questions:

What was your best day of the week last week and why?

I’d have to say Saturday because Saturday night was a lot of fun – finally going out to play with my sweetie and being able to relax and laugh amidst all the drama we’ve had lately that’s sending me around the bend and not in a good way.

What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without sleep?

I seem to remember something about pulling together an event at the Wiltern and it taking 3 1/2 days of non-stop activity to get squared away and ready to go, so maybe 84 hours? The last 24 or so were a big green smear.

Is how old you look and/or how old you feel right now different from your actual age?

I’m told I look younger than my calendar age, and I feel younger mentally as well, but I definitely feel older in my body.
