The A to Z Challenge has been over for several days, but I was out of town and still have w, x, y and z to finish so here goes.
In the story of Aladdin, he found some kind of old oil-type of lamp and in the process of shining it up a bit, released a genie who in gratitude to Aladdin allowed Aladdin three wishes. I don't remember all of Aladdin's wishes but I've been thinking about what I might like to wish for if I had a genie to make them come true.
Having only three wishes would cause me to do some deep thinking to see what I really wanted. Of course I'd love to have good health, a happy family, and peace on earth, and I already have so much, but there are a few things that I'd love to have that would help me along the rest of my journey.
Wish #1: I'd love a clear and focused mind. I sometimes have trouble focusing on one idea without my mind wandering off in another direction, making it more difficult to have clear thoughts. I don't even know what it would feel like to have clear and uncluttered thoughts, but I'd love to experience clarity.
Wish #2: I'd love to have the communication skills to clearly communicate my thoughts so that others would understand them. It's sometimes frustrating for me when I can't clearly communicate what I'm thinking or ideas that I have; better communication skills would be a wonderful gift!
Wish #3: And I guess if I only get to choose one more thing (and boy, is this difficult!) then maybe I'd choose a career where I could help others and make a difference in people's lives. Or maybe instead I'd like to have a decisive mind. Or maybe my third wish would be to have a few more wishes granted?
If you could have three wishes granted, what would they be? And would you have as difficult a time choosing your wishes as I obviously have?
