Prompt for December 28: I Wish: What do you wish for in 2012? How will you make it come true?
What’s that old saying about wishes and horses?
I don’t make a lot of wishes. As I remind people often, I am goal-oriented. I tend to think that wishing is for…other people. I hope. I dream. I make plans. But I don’t do a lot of wishing. Wishes, in my view, are aimless dreams without a plan for bringing them to fruition.
What do I wish for in 2012? World peace. A resolution to the Euro-zone debt crisis. For the liars to stop lying; for the poseurs to stop posing; for the copycats to stop…flattering. I wish for a lot of devastating and annoying things beyond my control to cease.
In other words, I will leave the wishes to the dreamers, and I’ll continue in the manner to which I’ve become accustomed. After all, I seem to be doing some things right.
