I love wishes! I make wishes on almost anything from stray eyelashes to shooting stars to sailing through a yellow light at an intersection. The best time to make a wish, however happens twice a day, at 11:11! I happen to have a break in the morning during the 11:00 hour, so I sometimes catch the clock at just the right moment to make a little wish. (In the nighttime 11:00 hour I am usually sleeping…) Today is a special wishing day because the calendar falls on 11/11!
I’ll be posting this post at 11:11 on 11/11. I know…clever, right?
Without further ado, here are my three wishes on this special day:
- I wish that the end of this semester and upcoming final exams are a smooth event for me and all other students involved. I know how crazy this time of year can be with all of the academic and social obligations of the year crammed into two months, and I am wishing for a stress-free and happy end to it all.
- I wish to not gain any weight over the holidays. I’m putting this one out there in a big way. I’ve been following the Weight Watchers program and doing pretty well, so I’m on the right track. I’m not expecting to lose any weight in these next few weeks, but my wish is to stay on program and not gain any in that time frame.
- I wish that everyone who needs food and shelter this Thanksgiving has it. Of course I wish this for the entire year-long, but especially this holiday season when family and community are so important. I hope that folks who are struggling are able to find the nourishment and care they really need.
What do you wish for on this 11/11?
