I Wish

Sarah Rosemary at Sunny Side Up and I are hosting our own Reverb11, a series of prompts to look back on 2011 and manifest the new year.  Please check our Reverb11 pages for details, and join in!

Prompt for December 28: I WishWhat 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.

  1. RE: Your Tweet. I agree. Runners are planners. Every day is a chance to turn over a new leaf, to set a new goal to achieve. To accomplish. Why wait when the time is now?
