Reverb 11 | Prompt 28 | I wish

Prompt for December 28: I wish. What do you wish for in 2012? How will you make it come true?

I loved wishing as a kid. Wish upon a star. Wish upon fallen eyelashes. I took blowing out birthday candles as a very important time to make a big wish.

But now wishing seems silly to me. Is it really wishing or wishful thinking? How important is it to wish? Does wishing set you up for disappointment? Or does it fuel your fire?

Maybe I’m afraid to wish big. Perhaps because I am a cautious heart, fearing that be careful what you wish for lest it come true sentiment.

Something about the idea of wishing brings to mind both something magical and something potentially damning. Like once you say your wish, it gains some sort of strength of it’s own and shoots off in an unanticipated direction.



In 2012, I don’t have any wishes. My soul sister, Kat, inspired me to instead keep my wishes open to possibilities. So here’s to desires I don’t yet know I have, longings for whatever comes around, and my wants for whatever it is I already have.

  • I really like your approach for 2012. Be ready to accept all the awesomeness that will come your way – I have a feeling it’s going to be a huge year for you and your blog!! 🙂
