Twinkle, Twinkle, little star, When you wish upon a star……Blow out the candles and make a wish. All of my childhood seems to be full of dreams, wishes, and hopes. I am sure you share this with me. We watched and read about many happy endings.
The book by Beth Thomas, Powered by Happy, provides many tips to help you maintain happiness. One of the chapters is dedicated to dumping your to-do list! Instead, start an I-wish list! We have things we have to get done, but we also need to have something we wish could come true. This brings us long-term happiness, not short-term happiness when accomplishing tasks on our list.
Can you remember the song in Pinocchio? “When you wish upon a star, makes no difference where you are, anything your heart desires will come true.” The song was written in 1930 by Ned Washington. Another songwriter John Lennon wrote a verse in the song Beautiful Boy for his son: “Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.” Both songs have fathers and boys, or at least one who wishes to be a boy and one who wishes to be a father.
To make wishes come true, you need to have a plan! Your wish has to be something that really can come true. Have no fear because you are afraid of change. Have the courage, but do not be discouraged by the pace. Wishes and dreams take time. There is planning, action steps, work and patience to get them accomplished.
I will be honest in saying I have fear, but I am working through those fears. Your journey in life often brings you challenges, barriers, and many people to support you. In the words of Walt Disney, “Dream, Believe, Dare and Do!” All of your dreams can come true if you have a plan, belief, take a chance, and do the work!
I wish you happiness, dreams coming true, and stars shining bright to light the path forward. #Bethesolutiondaily
