I Wish…

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.

  1. LOVED the video – how cute!

    It’s funny, I think I must be one of the few people who adores winter and cold.

    I know this must sound strange, but I so enjoy this time of the year.

    I think I must have been a penguin in one of my pastlives – HA!

    Great question you asked!

    For me, my wish would be to more readily accept the things I cannot change and discover the lessons in them. That’s always been my challenge.

    Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

    I wish we were not at war. There are a lot of people out there fighting for our country and for peace.


  3. I could wish to be a little better at integrating my life lessons and knowledge from my head – where I could quote you chapter and verse – into my heart and bones, where I need to *practice* it.

    This blog entry got me to thinking about the difference between a wish and faith. It made me wonder, as an adult, do I still make wishes? Do I still dream? As adults, do we still have wishes? Do we still have dreams or have we become cynical? Have we become all business all the time? I also thought, would I wish for a miracle or would I pray for a miracle AND taking that even further, do I believe in miracles? This thought process led me to fill in the blank as follows. I wish that my faith would never leave me. Now, I need to continue to take steps to believe in that wish.
