Wish You Were Here

Wish You Where Here

I get lost in the act of wishing.

I wish I played tennis more.  I wish I were more extroverted.   I wish I played guitar better.  I wish I did a better job of marketing this blog. I wish those jeans I got a couple of years ago weren’t so tight. I wish I were more comfortable (and effective) at networking.  I wish that I wrote (and published) more often.  I wish I were taller.  I wish I called my mom more often.  I wish I didn’t have a commute. I wish I had published a book  by now. I wish I were a proactive friend who reached out to people. I wish I was more disciplined in my follow through and execution. I wish I had built and maintained more relationships over the years. I wish I were in a band.  I wish I still played hockey.

I can spend a weekend wishing my time away.

Most wishes actively focus on what you don’t have or aren’t doing.  It’s wanting parts of life to be different than what they are … and doing nothing about it .  Wishing is powerlessness.

Wishing is not taking steps to change my life or appreciating what I have in life.   I am taking steps.  I am doing something.  Just not something that will change anything.  I am wishing.

I wish that wishing were more productive.  I am good at.   It’s not.  It’s just a waste of time.

NOTE:  A wish is different that faith.  More on that next time ….
