If wishes were horses, I’d be walking

It’s Tuesday, and that means that today I’m over at Off Our Chests. Partially inspired by Otto’s birthday (and subsequent match-stuck-in-the-cake), I’m thinking about wishing, today. And wondering if I’m weird.

I once had a friend who tried to convince me that if I didn’t have an entire list of things I wanted (not necessarily THINGS, but experiences, goals, etc.) it meant I was somehow not as spiritually enlightened and forward-thinking as she and her actively-working-on-their-lists cohorts were. It was a sign of stagnation and thinking small, she said. (We’re not friends anymore. Surprise!)

Nevertheless, I know some might find my position odd. So naturally I’m going to lay it all out there and wait for someone to tell me I’m wrong and possibly also that I’m stupid and my dog is funny-looking. (People are like that, you know. Joke’s on them, though—I already KNOW Licorice is funny-looking!)

I hope you’ll come on over and tell me about your wishes, or lack thereof.

    Licorice is adorable!

    I think it can be a fine line between having goals for the future and refusing to be present in the now.
