Your Heart's Desire

So many of us, if we had the chance, would do things over in our lives. We find ourselves wishing that things were different, or wishing we could change things to better suit our personal needs. So my question to you today: If you were granted just one wish, what would it be? Would you change a decision you've made? Personal appearance? Financial security? If you were granted that wish, the one that would fulfill your heart's desire, what would you choose? This can be as serious or light-hearted as you want to make it, and there is no wishing for more wishes!

First off may I be the first to say just how good it is to see you back posting here on your site. Now for my answer.

Sometimes I have wished that I had met my wife sooner and not had such a long wasted youth. But perhaps I needed that long wasted youth to prepare me for her. So maybe the country song was right, and sometimes the greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.

That and I really enjoyed my long wasted youth.

Without hesitation, I'd wish for my oldest to talk.

I would honestly pass on getting a wish. If I got one then I would want more. I would choose just to be thankful for what I have and do the best I can.

Today, I wish that I could go back 5 years, knowing what I know right now. I would have made better decisions.

I wish that I had never started SMOKING...hence...more money, and better health/longer life.

I had absolutely no control over this, but I wish I had been born physically normal, instead of with cerebral palsy. There's absolutely no doubt, my life would've turned out differently. Who knows, I might have even been married 2 or 3 times by now. ;)

Since this wish is for ME, then I would get rid of my voice disorder that I have had to deal with for about 8 years now. It would be so great to not have it anymore!!

Since I really didn't make a wish, here's one. I wish that all males would be men.

I wish I could be a successful author. Wait, that's too big. I wish I could get my first novel published; what happens after that is up to me. I guess now I just have to write and submit it, hmmm?

This really is a serious wish. At some point I've got to give up the paycheck and concentrate on what I really want to do.

There are alot of things I regret and I would rather have not happened. But they all lead me to who I am and my hubby and son. So I wouldn't change a thing in my past. But those things still pain me.

I would wish for my son to always be healthy and safe from harm.

I wish he would leave me so I didn't have to feel guilty for doing it myself.

Sky Diving.

I've read the comments here, and heard a lot of the things that I may have regretted, or not. I know that I can still do a lot of the things I wish for, and choose not to, but the one thing I can't get past is my fear of heights.

If I had one wish, it would be to break my fear of all fears... It would be to sky dive. In my mind, everything else would follow in suit.

I'm pretty happy, so I would probably just wish that my life would continue on as it has for the last 31 years! :-)

I have mental illness. I've always had it, though I wasn't aware of it until November, 1985.
I've been diagnosed with almost every kind of mental illness, though the only one of which I'm certain is OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder). Since there is no cure for any form of mental illness, the diagnosis really matters little. What does matter is that I'm on disability, because I can't work a full-time job, that I have to take psychiatric drugs that cause horrible side effects--such as severe obesity and erectile dysfunction, and that no woman will love me, due to this illness. I've never had a girlfriend, fiance, or wife. So my wish, though impossible for man, is simple for God--that I be able to have a career I enjoy, that I never have to take these devastating drugs again, and that I am able to attract a woman who will love me, and bring out the best in me--that I be completely cured of this mental illness. I'm 42 years old, but I've never really lived. If I were completely free of this mental illness, I could begin living.
