I'm telling you WISHING can really get you into trouble!

The other day I was walking down the sidewalk and "wishing"  my knee wouldn't bother me so much and "bing" it stopped hurting!  I was a bit surprised and then just pushed it out of my mind blaming it on my crazy body! As I continued on.....  my left contact in my eye was really irritating me.  So I "wished" it would stop irritating me and "bing" it stopped.

What was I to think at this point?  What would you think? Lucky?  Coincidental? Brain going crazy?
Feeling a bit cocky, I began stepping to the unheard music and my swagger increased.  Oh yeah, I was pretty cool with a new knee & perfect vision.

So I walked into my house and having a bit of fun, "wished" the dishes were all done.  Then I walked into the kitchen and "bing"  they were all done!  I promise you, there were no dishes!  I know you don't believe me..... that's okay, it didn't happen to you!

So I walked into the TV room ( I call the room with the comfy chairs, huge screen TV and 10 remote controls.. the TV room).  I saw my husband watching ANOTHER war documentary and I "wished" he would disappear so I can watch my Hallmark channel. And "bing"  He disappears!!!  

Now my husband has disappeared.... No where to be found.  Man, am I in trouble with him.

I guess I should "wish" him back.  !

 Reflection on how dreaming & wishing impacts us

I was sitting and going over what I really wanted out of life and how I was going to make it happen. I came to a realization that as I get older dreaming & wishing are a waste of time.  When we are younger, dreaming and wishing are important because they help us plan our lives.  But if you are older and still dreaming and wishing you have missed an important step in your life.

I'm not saying dreams aren't important when we are older; I still feel that is important.  I am saying if you are wishing about something that isn't going to change, well....  maybe you need to get over it.  OR... make it happen!!!

I have done this.

So, I wanted to share my success with you.
I dream all the time about writing and submitting a book.. or two.  I have so many ideas that I want to put on paper to share with the whole world!  But how?  How do I make this happen?

I find that my job currently sucks a lot of energy out of me. I know this is  happening, and yet can't seem to NOT let that happen.  I have to admit there are days when I can barely get home and get something done at night and I don't even have children at home anymore. My job is very stressful and my energy level is reduced because of it.  Sitting at a computer writing is not the best thing after sitting at work at a computer for hours.  Thank goodness for my ipad that at least lets me type and sit on my comfy sofa.

I think the secret of success in our dreams is one tiny, tiny little thing....
Keeping our eyes and ears open for opportunities!

Yeah, I know easy for me to say. But put yourself out there and associate with other people, make yourself available for interactions.  You'd be surprised what you can learn.

Or maybe I'm just especially blessed.  Can I claim that?  I know that Jesus Christ loves me, but would he bless me in my dreams & wishes and not another?
So in summary, here are my suggestions.
1) Always dream & wish
2) Keep an eye & ear out for those dreams & wishes
3) Make yourself available
4) Find ways to make it happen.

Last, don't be impatient like me,  Reflect.  Make sure this dream or wish is what you really want.

Thanks for reading my blog, please comment below on how dreams & wishes impact you!!!!

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, its a new year and always a good time to have new wishes.....

A time to start over, a time to reflect on the last year.  

What do you wish you would have done better? More often?  Less often?

I'll start with my confessions first..

First,  I wished I would have talked to my children and grandchildren more often. More texting, more skyping or more calls.
Second, I wished I would have backed up my ipad to my PC. I had written several pages and made corrections to the current copy of my newest novel on my ipad and accidentally deleted it when I thought I was moving it!  UGH!
Third, Watched less TV.   With Scorpian as a series, not sure thats going to change in 2015. I love that show.  And  American Idol coming up.... 

What about you?   Share with me here.  
Have a good day!
