Wishing

a desire for something to happen or be done: a feeling of wanting to do or have something. : an act of thinking about something that you want and hoping that you will get it or that it will happen in some magical way. wishes: good thoughts or feelings directed toward a person.”

Have you ever wanted something so badly that you literally couldn’t think about anything but? I can remember being a young girl at Christmas, wishing for new Barbie, or whatever the new “it” toy was of the moment, desperately waiting for its arrival.  As I became older the toy was replaced by other things. Sometimes the distraction of wanting something so badly would be unbearable.  Isn’t life funny that way? We want, what we want, or can’t have, or, we want what is beyond our reach or, simply not ours. There’s nothing wrong with dreaming or being patient for something special.  As the saying goes, “all good things come to those who wait” it’s the waiting part that kills me.

It’s hard to let go of dreams or fantasies, they’re ingrained in our thoughts and minds.  Wishing I had a crystal ball…

Knowing the outcome of any situation would give you assurance, or perhaps it would prevent you from taking risks or missed opportunities.  We all have a crystal ball within us…calling it our intuition. Sometimes the truth hurts, wishing or wanting something knowing deep down inside that maybe it’s not meant to be.  Our intuition is remarkable at giving us signs, that gut feeling that we try to avoid, sadly, because we know the answer.

I can’t help but think of a few moments of late, leaving me with a smile on my face for various reasons. Wishing I could repeat, to quote Hugh Grant, “its as if I’ve taken love heroin, and now I can’t ever have it again.” There’s nothing wrong with a healthy amount of wishing, it’s what keeps us going.  My crystal ball tells me I need to be patient and perhaps my wishes will come true. Damn!

I’ve never been good at being patient…in fact, I’m pretty sure this is the universe testing me again, omg, enough with the tests! lol.  Forcing me to take baby steps for something amazing.  I know…If I’m always running how will I know when to stop? Thus keeping me in check for that certain something or someone to pop into my life. Yes, yes, I get it!

Wishes aren’t just for fairy tales. I truly believe there are no limits to what you can create or imagine possible in your mind, only you put limits on yourself to what those possibilities will be. Wish upon a star, imagine the billions of stars staring back, it only takes one star to hear you and it takes only one moment for you to change what you do differently to make that wish come true.
