Following my "What ifs..." (CLICK HERE) inspired by Jeff's "Wouldn't it be Greats..." (CLICK HERE) I have decided to get a bit more specific in what exactly it is I want and put the law of attraction into swing...(Isn't that how it's supposed to work? "Need a lover or a house, just call on the universe to provide!") So here is my wish list, flung out into this convoluted cosmos...
I want my husband to not only love me as I know he does but to show me in elaborate and breathtaking ways even though I'll probably criticise him for it...
I want to win at Scrabble every time! ...and chess, too, while we're at it.
I want a cure for cancer, multiple sclerosis, insomnia and migraines too! (Though I remember reading that there already is a cure for cancer but people aren't talking about it as pharmaceutical companies would stand to lose zillions!)
I want people to be less tolerant and to stand up for their rights when the are trampled on!
I want Greece to have a prime minister who can actually speak Greek. (And for Greeks to finally realise that just cause he can't speak Greek doesn't mean that he knows English...)
I want politicians to be forced to live on the minimum wage for a couple of months in order to get a reality check and hopefully climb down from their ivory towers.
I want God to exist (believe it or not, I do, I really do...) and to make his (or her) presence a little bit more felt in this world.
I want my kids to have health, values and to be better people than I am.
I want to live to be 100 (but without arthritis and Alzheimers).
I want to love and be loved for what I am even though this is not always easy to love or nice (is that asking for too much!)
I want people to throw their rubbish in the right recycling bin (this morning I found food waste in the paper bins!)
I want to eat chocolate all the time and never get fat!
I want to get paid to do nothing all day...and to not have financial problems and be surrounded by beautiful things.
I want to visit the Himalayas!
I want purpose (a mission would be nice. Who knows? Someday I may get a brainwave like Robin)...CLICK HERE FOR ROBIN'S BRAINWAVE! And while you're at it, perhaps you may like to read the letter she wrote to me - CLICK HERE - it made me feel all fuzzy... (If you like, maybe YOU could write me a letter on your blog, too...)
I want to read books, lots of them, especially great ones...
I want to be a smart and self-actualised person and be able to not just read Archive Fire but be able to leave nice intellectual and insightful comments. (And while we're on the subject of this blog, I want to know what THIS (CLICK HERE) is...even though I am told that I would rather not! Please tell me someone, please, or else I will "go crazy, punch a senior citizen or something like that".)
I want to live on a farm (with lots of animals...including a donkey...and spend my time making jam.)
I want a little tattoo of a ladybird on my shoulder so that I can look at it as a reminder of how lucky I am.
I want to savour the flavour of each and every moment before it slips through my fingers...
I want to be brave and gutsy like Ingrid Betancourt (and while we're at it, I wouldn't mind meeting her either).
I want people who read this - YOU, yes YOU - to leave a comment just so that I know they came (and it doesn't have to be a nice comment, either, because I want people to be upfront and honest at all costs).
