Wherever you are …
…have a very Merry Christmas.
It’s been a very cold December in Pittsburgh and my furry boots and heavy coats have already gotten quite a work out. When the holidays are over, I’ll be ready to say bye-bye to winter. I wish I could wish winter away. Where is Mr. Heat Miser when you need him?
Yes, I know he’s not a real person. But a girl can dream. Plus, I love redheads.
I’d like to wish for 80 degree temperatures on January 2. But since I am not Mother Nature and the Heat Miser is not my son, I won’t hold out hope.
When I use the word wish, it usually applies to things that are impossible, or beyond my ability to affect. Like…wishing that my mom wasn’t sick. Or that my brother was coming home for Christmas. Or that Elvis was still alive. Do you wish for impossible things too?
However, some wishes do come true, because wishing involves believing. And believing starts a chain reaction. Believing means that you have positive thoughts. With positive thoughts, desire and empowerment are bred. And when you have power and desire, you become motivated to play your part in making the wish come true.
So, the next time you say “I wish that ________,” fill in the blank with something that is within your ability to do, or change, or help with. Then maybe, just maybe, your wish really will come true.
If you could make one wish this Christmas…even if it is not within your power…what would it be?
Merry Christmas and to all a Good Night.
