Wish on everything. Pink cars are good, especially old ones. And stars of course, first stars and shooting stars. Planes will do if they are the first light in the sky and look like stars. Wish in tunnels, holding your breath and lifting your feet off the ground. Birthday candles. Baby teeth.

Dream. It’s an Absolute Must. They do come true, ya know. Are you a Wisher? A Dreamer? I guarantee at one time you were until you stopped. Why did you stop Darlin’? I’m sure I have a good idea…
We get to change that, starting today.
I still cast wishes daily. I pick up pennies and place them in my shoe, sometime even my bra chanting… Find a penny. Pick it up. Then all Day, you’ll have Good Luck. And guess what? I do. Smile. I’ll even drop pennies purposely on the ground just to make someone else’s day.
I make sure to blow out all the birthday candles in one breath and never reveal my wish. I consider dandelions not pesky weeds, rather wonderful wishes. See how this works? It’s all in your perspective.
And your perspective becomes your reality. #Truth
Have you ever watched any of those Dateline “Who done it mysteries”?
I used to. Interesting how they’d interview several eye witnesses and each individual had a different account of what happened. Hmmm… Shocker. Everyone’s perspective is different. #Duh (summoning my teenage-flair)
Wishes aren’t only granted in fairy tales ya know. Wishes do come true every day. It’s just a matter of whether you want to come play or not.

11:11. I just smiled. 11:11 is tattooed on the inside of my arm. I take this wishing thing quite seriously. Giggle. Let me explain. Ever since I can remember, let’s say Jr High, I would see 11:11.
I grew up in the eighties, big hair and all. Digital clocks were everywhere and old fashion alarm clocks. At first I thought 11:11 was kind of cool, different. Even special. Then the cool factor wore off and the fear factor set in. I tried to avoid seeing 11:11 at all cost.
Excitement at 10:45, rollover, close my eyes, fall asleep. The phone would ring, turn to answer it, there it was again. Wet my pants.
Not really, but almost. The icing on the cake.
Psychology class, Junior year. I raise my hand to ask the teacher about this 1111 phenomenon. His response, “Very funny Cole look at the time”. The whole class turned around and sure enough Digital clock, big red numbers glaring 11:11 back at us. I started crying and ran out of the room. Ok, I admit, a bit of #Drama. Go big, or go home right. Wink. Fast forward, College. I overheard some girls saying it’s 11:11Make a Wish. I smiled. Well, I’ll be damned. I mean, I’ll be lucky. #BAM
There are many different theories out there to express exactly what this apparent phenomenon of seeing the numbers 1111 is all about. Making a wish being one of them. Other theories state that there is something significant happening in the moment that you are in and you should pay attention to what is going on in your surroundings.Others claim that 11:11 signals a spirit presence.
I wonder how many individuals would even notice 1111 if they were actually present, living in the moment. I’d venture to say quite a lot.
When we live in the present moment and observe what is occurring around us, it’s magical.
It’s #BAMWorthy. It’s Life. One Amazing Life. #Roar
Life is slipping by day after day. Month after month. Dare I say, year after year. It’s time to relish in sunsets, dreams, make-believe, and by all means, wishes.
You my Dear, get to make a wish today! Oh, it’s not your birthday?
Who cares. Time to celebrate, take chances, dances, and drumroll …. Wish.
You can wish upon a star, a penny, under a bridge holding your breath even. Be creative. Show us what ya got little Mama. But you
