The Wishing Well

What do you wish for?

Whisper your deepest secret,

Now go and find it!

Grasp it firmly with both hands,

Be thankful and hold on tight!


Today I was thinking about how sometimes we wish things would happen and we think it’s enough just to wish for it, but we do nothing specific to find it or make it happen.

Perhaps taking action after making a wish will help it along!

And be careful what you wish for, be precise in your formulation and make sure it’s ‘exactly’ what you really want, because it may well happen in your very own words…
