Do you wish your life away?

wishing on a starDo you find yourself frequently wishing for something more in your life and wasting your energy wishing your life away? And of course there is the children's nursery rhyme that says: Star Light, Star Bright, I wish I may, I wish I might have the wish I wish tonight.

Myself included, I know we sometimes find ourselves wishing for things that we do not have, wanting what others may have, and thinking about things that we could have had. Quite frankly, it is probably human nature to strive for bigger and better things and that is okay. The problem often arises when we spend too much time wishing our lives away and not sufficient time taking action steps to allow what we desire to manifest.

This reminds me of a song that topped the charts back in 1995. Hip hop rapper Skee-Lo debuted with his one-hit wonder, "I wish". In his song, he talks about how he wishes he was a bit taller, among many other things. The funny part about the lyrics is that the whole song is a big "pity party". When wishing becomes the greater part of who you are, you begin seeing all the negativity in your life opposed to all the blessings that surround you now. In fact, when you create your own pity party, you can no longer focus on open doors of opportunity. The world becomes too difficult and all that you see is what you cannot have. That is not the way you are intended to live your life.

What is it that you heart desires right now? If it is a relationship, then what are you doing to create and manifest the connection you are seeking? If you are simply wishing for a relationship it is truly not good enough. Words and thoughts without deeds go nowhere. The same applies to the word "try". For example, "I tried to have a relationship but it just didn't work out." If you truly "tried", what was it that you need to do differently to make things work more effectively? Make a list of things that you can do right now to create the life you want to lead. After you have crafted your list, you need to follow through on those modifications so that you will not just be trying, but instead, doing.

take action graphic"When you DO all that you can do to support and manifest the dreams that you have made in your heart and soul, then your wishes can come true." When you DO what your inner soul truly wants you to do, all the obstacles you see before you become stepping-stones and opportunities for learning and growing. Remember too, dreams and wishes are the heart's laughing place - a tender spot in your heart that keeps you striving and thriving. Never let go of your heart's desires - but in order to fulfill them, you have to do more than just try - you must take action steps.
