Every week, Jamie Ridler offers a wish prompt. It might be a short question, but once you pause and reflect, you go deeper and deeper, inside.
Today’s prompt is “What do you wish to take a break from?”
Sounds easy right? I could go for the obvious answer, the infamous “taking a break from day job would be nice thank you”, and leave my wish at it. This is only the first layer of the onion though.
Because what is stopping me, really? Fear of failure? Actually, in a very odd way, I do believe that I will always manage to fall back on my feet as we would say in French (improvement!). Fear of success? Nope, I kinda dig success, I am not a Capricorn for nothing baby.
So what IS it? Weeeelll, there might be a tiny bit of financial concerns here. I know, I’m a being full of contradictions, because it is the exact opposite of what I wrote above, isn’t it?
Maybe not so. I know that somehow I can find a job easily. But what if I don’t make enough to pay my rent? What if I can’t completely sustain my life as it is now? Then again, do I really want to continue living the way I am living now?
Some say leap and the net will appear. I’m more of the “let the net appear first then I’ll leap” school. Then again, what if I grow the net just a little, then have the full net appear as I leap? It is already happening after all!
I wish to take a break from my attachment to control everything and my fear of heights (literally – coincidence? – and figuratively). I’ve let trust and intuition come into my life over the last few months, it’s time to give them more room.
What do *you* wish to take a break from?
