Quote of the Day

My wish for simple presence

Voluntary simplicity means going fewer places in one day rather than more, seeing less so I can see more, doing less so I can do more, acquiring less so I can have more.

– Jon Kabat-Zinn

One of my favorite people in the world gave me this wish dog. I was daunted by the idea of making one wish – it felt so important that I avoided the process of narrowing all my wishes down to one for months. The enlightenment of how many wishes I actually nurtured in my heart really altered my perspective on wishes and intentions. But wishdogandfriends beckoned me: Wish Dogs ARE reusable!!! So go ahead, wish for more wishes!!

I love the ritual of writing down a wish, setting it one fire and watching it slowly burn as my dog seems to acknowledge the wish by blowing smoke out her nose. It feels like I’m releasing my intentions into the world. There are some wishes that I made every day for weeks, others only once, and a few that I’m still making. ❤
