Remember being a kid and making wishes? We’d wish on birthday candles, stars, and coins in a fountain. And we took those wishes so seriously that we didn’t tell a soul for fear that it wouldn’t come true.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation has a great purpose: to grant the wishes of chronically ill children. No matter how big or outrageous the request is, they try to make it happen. I love that all a child has to do is ask…and they get it! There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes planning that goes into one wish (fundraising, coordinating schedules with people, making reservations, etc.). But what I really love is that the child doesn’t see all of that stuff — he or she just sees their wish come true. It’s magic.

This kind of organization makes me wonder: What is my one wish? If money and time were no issue, what would I want? After thinking about it for a while, I realized that I don’t know what my wish is. I want a lot for many people and I’m not really into stuff, so it’s hard to say. If I had to decide today, though, I would have to say that I would love for my business to take off.  Not just started, but with a client list and millions of dollars of grants written by me. But that will all come in time. Everyday I’m getting closer and closer to achieving my wish.

How about YOU? If you could be guaranteed that it would come true, what would you wish for? Let me know below – I’d love to hear from you!
