I’ve heard the old adage “Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.” I believe this was meant to be a warning to people that they might actually receive the things they wish would happen but my question is why the warning? I may be alone in this but I don’t recall ever wishing for bad things to happen. Perhaps there are those that live some self destructive wish ridden lifestyle but I don’t know them personally. It occurs to me that they may be referring to the need to be prepared for the things that we wish for assuming they will be too much for us to handle. I completely accept that there are instances in others lives where the perhaps the ramifications of their wishescometrue include aspects they had perhaps not taken in to account. This has not happened to me but I am aware of instant fame derailing an otherwise level headed individual. I guess my thinking is that wishes are supposed to possess an inherent larger-than-life hope. They should encompass the things that lie at the outskirts of our reality and unabashedly look even farther to things we may have never considered a possibility. It is this hope infested unlimited dream like view of what our world can be that can drive us to do the unexpected and the impossible. I say don’t be careful what you wish for. I say wish for too much. And enjoy the outcome because it may very well be the thing that will take you to a place you never knew existed.
