I wish people were more ready to pay for groceries at the store.
I wish people would drive faster and safer.
I wish the school pickup area was larger.
I wish my friends blogged more.
I wish my kids would whine less.
I’ve thought all these things in the past week and realized that I’m not wishing for other people to change, I’m wanting myself to. Each expression should be - I wish I would - because that’s what I really want out of all of this. Change and change doesn’t come through wishing.
You can’t find change in the bottom of a drawer or imagine it while you’re driving. Change isn’t delivered in a brown box with a smiley face on it and change doesn’t show up like a summer rainstorm. We have to go get it and wishing other people would change only reminds us of that
These thoughts are now gone from my life. There is no more time for wishing other things on others, there is only time for implementing change on myself. I will be ready to pay for groceries, drive safer and not clog the street at school. I will blog more and whine less and exercise more and call people back and take more pictures.
