Act 356

Don’t waste a perfectly good wish on money

Today, for a brief moment, I found myself wishing for more money. And then I thought better of it. What a waste of a wish.

Part of me believes that we only get so many wishes in life and we mustn’t waste them. The wish for a healthy child, a happy family, a meaningful existence.

Please don’t waste a wish on something as foolish as money.

Wish instead for the courage to change your circumstances.
Wish instead for the commitment to meet your obligations.
Wish instead for the satisfaction of making due with what you have.
Wish instead for the creativity to problem solve.

A good wish can go a long way. You have it within you to make what’s important happen. Wish for nothing more and nothing less.
