What I Wish to Enjoy





Today Jamie Ridler asks the question:
     What do you wish to enjoy?

I wish to enjoy meaningful friendships with other women. In my life close friendships and time spent with other women, scratch that, other like-minded women with similar interests is very important. The need to just sit and sip tea and talk about life with a common interest and enthusiasm, and to have the comfort with each other to allow total informality. To go on mini-adventures together, laugh about our sagging boobs and graying hairs, reassure each other how hot we still are while shopping in the mall with all of those youngins, LOL!

I do believe I don't always allow myself to be totally open and available but, I also have had a hard time allowing myself to meet new and different people. There are a lot of like minded folks out in my community that are my age or so whom I know I would enjoy getting to know but then that fear of rejection or fear of  being mis-understood creeps in. I spend too much time allowing people who just don't get me to speak into my life/world their views and understandings that often clash with my own. Which leaves me feeling inadequate and odd.

I allow myself from this point on to be happy in my skin and open and available to make new friends, meet new people and lead new adventures.

light and love
Anna

I too have difficulty finding like-minded friends (although I have found plenty of like-minded soulds online through Wishcasting and Full Moon Dreamboards, and through an online art forum. But I miss having girlfriends in they physical world. I've moved recently, so that doesn't help. Good luck to you in finding "kindred spirits" wherever they may be!

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.
