While seeing a Red mail van pass by,

While blowing off an eyelash that fell off my eye,

While going below the bridge when a train goes over it,

While taking that deep breath to blow the candles on my cake,

While seeing the first star in the moonlit sky,

-- I wished for things trivial, small, big and huge in all shapes.

Some of these I saw come true overnight and I smiled. I learnt a lesson thus that some things just happen if you just believe and wish for it with all your heart. Simple.

Some of these I struggled for, felt helpless and hopeless at times , resisted temptation to give up,  held supporting hands and finally realized them. I learnt a lesson thus, wishes need to be worked at, whole heartedly, with perseverance and no pain means no gain. Difficult but fulfilling.

Some of these I see no doors open for, draining me of my energy, taking away the love for life from me, ruining me. Evil.

All of these I had pampered, nurtured and they had manifested themselves as beautiful dreams. Some came true in simple form with life making no fuss , some came after humungous effort and added strength to my personality and character with life being a hard earned battle win, some crushed into pieces and took away my beliefs and ruined my happiness, with life being a merciless, evil cheat. But all taught a lesson.

While there are still some keep wishing for, innocently waiting which of those categories it will fall into.
Now, make a wish , pamper it , nurture it , and make it a dream and work towards it, whichever category it may go into.
Wishes are all your life's worth.
