“Wishing well a person is akin to appreciating his or her presence in our life.” #bgdtcoaching.
Wishing well ourselves might cause us difficulties. Whilst wishing well a person is akin to appreciating his or her presence in our life, it is not always so easy to do the same to ourselves. Possibly we feel confused, stuck and aware that, unlike us, time is moving forward.
Despite these sensations, wishing well ourselves is a way of acknowledging our efforts to date together with the choices made to get us where we are. If we view wishing well ourselves a radical act then so be it. Yet spreading kindness also to ourselves surely takes nothing away from others.
The wishing well is, in the traditional sense of the idea, a place to cast a coin in and make a wish, and perhaps not so far from the initial concept expressed here. In both examples we are focusing on what we would like to happen: wellbeing to embrace others and ourselves in one form of another.
Following up our good intentions with positive actions goes a long way to ensuring our wishes come true. Or maybe not. Please feel free to leave a comment below to share your thoughts on the question of ‘Wishing well‘.
Best wishes to you.
