Lucky Star, Lucky Strike, Lucky Rabbit’s Foot?

Today is your lucky day. You get three wishes, granted to you by The Daily Post. What are your three wishes and why?

We all wish for a lot of things, myself included. I think we wish for things when we don’t even realize we’re wishing for them. I find that when people wish for things, it’s because they want things to be different then how they really are. They wish for things to be different because life just isn’t working out how they expected or wanted at the particular moment. To me, wishing for things just means that we want what we don’t have or, more often than not, what we can’t have. Like love or friendship or I don’t know…happiness. I guess that sometimes, our wishes for things come out of nowhere and we don’t always realize why we’re wishing for those things in the first place. We just simply wish…

I wish to love or be loved without questioning it. That doesn’t necessarily seem that hard but sometimes there’s that little voice in your head that whispers things that makes you second guess yourself. Sometimes I find myself with feelings for someone and I start asking myself, “why do I even like this person”? I always tell one of my friends that I don’t believe in love at first sight (which I don’t believe I do) but I would have to be crazy not to believe in lust at first sight. Seeing someone is what draws you to them. Their personality isn’t usually the first thing you notice. It’s not like it’s screaming at you or something, although in some cases it is. Depends on the person. But what I guess I’m hoping to get out of this wish is ultimately to be free of uncertainty. Obviously not uncertainty about life because life will always be uncertain and we have no control over that. And we might not have control over our feelings (we don’t have control really) but we can control our reactions to those feelings. I wish to not second guess my feelings for someone else and not second guess someone else having true feelings for me. Even writing that sounds ludicrous because I always feel like someone would be ridiculous to have feelings towards me. See? That’s why I need to wish to be true.

I wish to become a published author. This one seems pretty self-explanatory but I really really want this. I want people to be able to read what I write and I want them to feel something because of it. I always take away so much from words and I feel it’s only right to be able to give a little bit of that back. I want to move someone to tears, I want to make someone laugh out loud. I want someone to read my writing late into the night and not have the ability to put it down even if their eyelids no longer have the strength to do the same. I’ve experienced all of these things and more from books and I want to be able to do this for other people. It’s all I really want.

I wish to be happy. It’s not that I’m not happy right now. I am. Or at least I think I am. I’m sometimes in the state of being happily unhappy. Right now, I suppose, I’m content. But there’s always something more that we want from our lives and what we expect from ourselves. I certainly want more and I expect more. I’m getting there though. I think happiness is something that we’re always striving towards. It’s not necessarily unreachable but it’s not always right in the palm of your hand.
