I Wish, I Wish, I Wish…

Lately, I’ve noticed that I spend a lot of my time wishing for things I don’t have.

I whine to my husband about my weight. I bemoan the fact that I’m utterly underwhelmed by my job. I drown my friends in lamentations about my life in general.

I mourn the child I’ve never carried in my womb.

I am wishing my life away.

One day I will wake up and realize that I’ve been neglecting all the wonderful things I do have while wishing for those things I don’t have.

Like true love. Friendship. Family. Laughter.


I don’t want to find myself sitting alone in a rocking chair somewhere, still wishing.

Wishing for more time with loved ones. Wishing for my youth. My health. Wishing I hadn’t spent so much time wishing.

It is time for me to learn to live in the moment. Because as each moment passes, it is another that I’ll never get back.

    Thanks, Abby. I randomly came across this one today, and it was something I really needed to read today.
