What do I wish to start....?

Jamie Ridler's Wishcasting Wednesday's question is "What do you wish to start?"

I have stacks of  "startings." Pieces of art. Pages of stories. Notes with ideas. Journals of inventions.
I sit back and just think about them all. I ponder the meaning of "start." begin or set out, as on a journey or activity. appear or come suddenly into action, life, view, etc.; rise or issue suddenly forth. spring, move, or dart suddenly from a position or place. be among the entrants in a race or the initial participants in a game or contest. give a sudden, involuntary jerk, jump, or twitch, as from a shock of surprise, alarm, or pain.
I have lots of those. I have set out, suddenly go into action, spring, dart, been in several races, and I have jumped, jerked and twitched.
I have a stack of stuff/ideas/art that is languishing. Doubt comes in. Procrastination. Soft addictions. Time consuming distractions.
I wish to start...finishing.
I wish to start completing what I started. Art, stories, ideas...round them up. Decide what the next steps are. Even domestic projects. I started to organize my closet - get it done. 
I want to start finishing the ideas and dreams. Move. Rise and issue forth. Bring tangible results out from the void. The recipe is "dream and manifest, think and do."
Start to finish.
If you can dream it, you can do it.

    1. Callie...
      I read once how all the unfinished business in one's life takes energy away...

      Here's to 'finishing' and getting back some energy!!

  4. I wish to start...finishing!! LOVE IT!!!!

    So, on to finishing....


  5. Hi Lisa K,
    I feel calm and a sense of satisfaction reading your intention to start finishing what you've already got going on. I appreciate that feeling of completion. Thank you for sharing!

    As you wish for yourself, I wish for you, too!

    1. ...and right about when I felt I had my list of things to "finish"... and whole new round popped up.

      Intention is everything.

  6. This is beyond awesome - I have started like 5 million things and not finished as well.

    As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well.

  7. I smiled at the concept of "starting to finish". Brilliant. My dad ( a shrink) used to tell me that what I hadn´t done would tire me more than what I had actually done. :D Something about carrying that weight around.
    As Lisa wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

  8. Here's to more starting of our finishing.... but also to the finished products :)
    As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you as well.

  9. Great wish to finish things. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.
