What do you wish for? If you knew you could make a wish, and it would come true, what would you wish for?
Do you hold your breath through when driving through tunnels and make a wish?
If you see the first star in the sky in the evening, do you stop and make a wish?
When you see a dandelion gone to seed, do you pick it, blow the seeds into the wind, and make a wish?
Do you pull apart the wishbone and hope for a wish?
Do you make a wish before blowing out your birthday candles?
When a ladybug lands on you, do you make a wish and send her off in flight?
Do you compose a minute long wish at the sight of the same numerals aligned on a digital clock?
Does the rare sight of a shooting star cause you to utter a quick and rare wish?
Do you toss a penny into every wishing well and fountain whilst whispering a wish to yourself?
I recently found out there are other things folks wish upon; a fallen eyelash, or a white horse. I’m sure there are, yet, more. When I think of all the missed wishes with fallen eyelashes! And with white horses! I used to wish for a white horse, then I had two white horses! Oh, the missed opportunity! Daily!
Do you wish? Do you miss opportunities? Or do you even believe in wishes?
Or do you even have a birthday cake with candles, notice tunnels you drive through, white horses, or dandelions. Do you ever look at the night sky long enough to see stars, let alone shooting stars?
Anything is possible, and wishes do come true. Perhaps not directly from wishbones or fallen eyelashes. But a wish is a desire, and with the right frame of mind, work ethic and belief, many of our wishes are totally doable.
Wishes are dreams, desires, seeds for goals. Don’t ignore them, don’t miss a single opportunity to embrace every fallen eyelash, every white horse, every penny in a fountain, every tunnel, every first and falling star! Listen to your wishes, if they are good, and pure, you have the power to make them come true. Follow them, nurture them, and live them.
Let me make a wish, now; I wish you would all follow your wishes, and make them come true, just by following them.
