“If wishes were horses, beggars would ride…”
Are your wishes and desires for the things that you want, strong enough to see you through hard times? Will you give up simply because things don’t happen when you want them too?
Once upon a time people would wish for things wholeheartedly – whether it was for themselves or for someone else. As children we’re told about wishing wells, and casting wishes on shooting stars. We make a wish while blowing out birthday candles, and we knock on wood for luck. We do these things because of a belief that our wishes will come true. Children would get excited looking for signs that their wish has come true.
Then we get older. Maybe the wish you made back when you were 5-years old never came true. Perhaps the one you made as a teenager never did either. Somewhere along the line many people stop believing in wishes. They become practical and don’t have time to wish or dream and may even look down on those who openly admit their wishes. But why did they give up?
Maybe you’re one of those people who has a wish, and has had it for a long time, and still believe that it will come true. You don’t care if it’s silly. You don’t care if it seems impossible. It’s your wish and it is something that you desire.
I say to keep holding on to that wish. Hold tight to that impossible possibility and, one day, that wish may become a reality.
It’s never too late to make a wish. It’s never too late to decide not to give up.
