Yet, writing about writing doesn't seem to flow with the rest of my A to Z theme.
I was considering W for Wild as in being outrageous and living one's life according to one's own standards, though I believe I alluded to that (did I not?) in my U post on 'Unique U' (http://xpressyouressence.blogspot.ca/2015/04/a-to-z-challenge-u-is-for-unique-u.html).
However, the word my heart chose is Wisdom. Wisdom comes not only from life's experiences but also from the heart, based on intuition.
There is a well-known expression known as the 'serenity prayer' in the 12-step community where people with similar addictions gather for support in maintaining sobriety: "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serenity_Prayer). Isn't there a lot of truth in that!
I never considered myself truly wise, more on the foolish spectrum as I oftentimes react impulsively speaking my mind - is this speaking my truth or intuition? (I am sensitive to energy in the environment and in people as well after all!)
When I started getting feedback however, in the form of a reading or a compliment more than once, I started to pay attention and take notice. And of course I am not always wise: please don't make me perfect! ;)
So I questioned myself: What is it about me that makes me wise? Or asked in another way: How am I wise?
Now my turn to ask you: What (do you think) makes you wise?
