Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it!
Some years ago, while driving along a busy road, hubby complained about the jam and said
“I wish the roads wouldÂ not be so jammed up all the time when going to and from work. Its so jammed up everywhere! Even the malls are jammed up!”
And then the economic downturn came and the roads became quieter and the malls became even quieter and some had to be closed down. And heÂ didn’t have a job for a time so there was no need to drive to and from “jammed” roads. Hmmm…..
When I was pregnant, I complained. “I wish I didn’t have to wear this clumsy and ugly looking maternity clothes. I feel so heavy and fat!”
Now, I can’tÂ get pregnant or ratherÂ it would probably not be a good idea for me to get pregnant. Hmmmm….
When the kids were little, I said “I wish they would grow up faster then it would be easier to look after them.”
Well they have grown upÂ nowÂ but it isn’t that much easier to look after them (lol!) and oh how I miss those sweet baby moments. Hahaha.
Whats the moral behind this? Be happy withÂ who you are and what you have right now and don’t wish for anything else or you just might get it! Don’t wish that your kids willÂ be less talkative or not jump around so much (youÂ should be happy they areÂ healthy and happy instead of sickly in the hospital)Â or that your spouse will not work so late (he may lose his job and not have work at all if your wish comes true!), or that your old folks will not impose on you so much or (enjoy whatever time you have left with your old folks and that includes the in laws) ……..It would be so silly to wish your life away instead of enjoying what you have.
Be thankful for everything that you have. Be thankful even for the traffic jams because it means the economy is robust and you have a job to go to! Lol!
