If you only had three wishes, what would they be?
Me, I don’t trust genies. They’re disgruntled little demons who twist your wishes around so that you don’t get exactly what you wish for. Therefore, you need to be very specific – which is actually more difficult than you realize.
Remember that episode of The X-Files, where someone wished for world peace, and the evil bitch genie froze everyone on the planet, except for Scully and Mulder?
It’s all about details. Don’t wish for a cure, or to be free of your illnesses. You might wind up dead, and 6 feet under. Don’t wish to win the lottery. That much money might make you the most hated person among family and friends. Or, you might wind up with a ton of people who are simply using you for your money.
That said, here are my three wishes:
- I wish for all people to be more patient, understanding, loving, and compassionate.
- I wish I could be a much better person than I currently am.
- I wish for a struggle-free, happy life and future for my children.
Finally, if you wish for terrible things, expect terrible things. Karma is very real. I’ve personally seen it at work.
