The other day I got a fortune cookie with my food, cracked it open, and read the tiny blue words on thin piece of paper. Like other fortunes found in cookies it was really vague.
Here is what it said:
"An old wish will come true."
Instantly my mind started racing.
What wish will that be?
. . . world peace.
. . . win the powerball jackpot.
. . . get a million dollar movie deal for my fantasy novel.
. . . get a promotion at work.
. . . go to Greece and travel Europe.
. . . become an olympic champion.
. . . win the Tour de France 8 times.
There were thousands of grand wishes that I had hoped for in the past. There are thousands of small wishes I hoped for in the past too. Then I thought a moment longer.
What are wishes anyway?
Wishes are hopes for change. They are a want for something more in our lives. They are the beginnins of goals and things to work for in your life so that the wish will come true. Wishes are a catalysit for getting what you want out of life.
Here are some wishes I just thought of to increase otterocity in my life.
. . . I wish I can work smarter, not harder.
. . . I wish I can have a more creative mind.
. . . I wish I can adapt to new things in my life.
. . . I wish I can have a more playful disposition and enjoy life more.
. . . I wish I can communicate with others better.
. . . I wish I can improve my teamwork and work with others better.
. . . I wish I can focuse on my own individual uniqueness.
. . . I wish I can persevere through challenges that are thrown my way.
. . . I wish I can love unconditionally.
. . . .I wish I can have a joyful spirit at all times.
These are all good wishes to bring change, and a positive outlook on things.
Maybe one of these will come true for me.
(Or, maybe I can blow the biggest bubble gum bubble in the world)
