Jamie Ridler's Studio and found her and a group of lovely people casting their wishes to the universe and inviting all to join. Well, now here was something different, for casting wishes is not something I'm particularly used to. Granting them is another matter of course!
This week Jamie is inviting us to speak of what gifts we wish to share. Being a Fairy Godmother, naturally I have many (although, as I explained in a previous post, regrettably I am still not able to turn pumpkins into coaches nor mice into men, handsome or otherwise - before anyone asks!). Under the Fairy Godmother Code page 9, paragraph 8.3.3 it does clearly state a rather tediously long list of gifts I am NOT allowed to share, although that is nothing compared to forbidden to utter secrets. However, I wouldn't be doing my job properly if I didn't share a few gifts with the aid of my magic wand here and there.
The biggest gift I ever give my charges is Self Belief. In fact, it's usually the first I pull out of my magic bag, for without self belief how would Rapunzel have ever got through those months locked in the tower? Would Cinderella have dared believe that she really could go to the ball? And would Julie have made Chief Exec with a childhood spent in and out of care (you probably don't know Julie's story quite as well as the others - her Fairy Godmother - yours truly - is not quite as famous as some of the others). Well, I've got news for you - you're all invited to that Ball and I'd love it if you waved your own wands, looked at yourselves in the mirror and cast your own spells.
The power to be what you want to be is in all of you. Just have faith and believe...
