That old saying about being careful what you wish for because you just might get it holds a lot more truth than you’d like to think. The trick when wishing, of course, is knowing the right things to ask for. Examine your secret hopes and desires. Which ones are just to impress other people? Toss those out. Which ones are the ones you think you “should” ask for? Junk those as well. Now that you know what’s left, start wishing!
