I wish to live without hate, ignorance, jealousy, envy, and fear.
I wish to be simple, honest, and frank.
I wish to face any obstacle and meet every difficulty unabashed and unafraid.
Growing up, we learned that there were many places to make wishes – a star, a well, candles on a birthday cake. We saw Dorothy return from Oz after she wished she were back home. Fairy tales taught us that wishes can come true.
Even though many of our wishes never came to fruition, we don’t have to stop wishing.
We may have wished for the impossible when we said, “I wish things would get better at home.”
But, we may have gotten our way when we said, “I wish this pain would end.”
Our best wishes can be about ourselves and the lives we want to have. We can wish for riches and find friends with hearts of gold. We can wish for comfort or health or even a night of uninterrupted sleep.
Whatever we wish for, we can receive.
