what happens when you want to be one thousand things and can only pull off a good fifteen? what would you do or do better if you really wanted to? speak better french, dance well, be the ideal weight, refuse dessert, gracefully remove something from your teeth at the table. give an impromptu toast, speak from your heart without crying, never raise your voice, whistle. sing a simple song in tune, offer well-received words of condolence, bring a gift to someone before they know they need it. wake up early, meditate, do math in your head, stick to a mantra, tell someone you love them. not judge, live in the moment, laugh more, stick to a commitment, decline an invitation, listen without speaking, run a respectable 10K. refuse something, take a deep breath, go to bed, just give the compliment. take a picture, send the letter, read the book, stop and take in the beauty of her imitating your every move.
is life about dreaming or accepting? where does the time go?
please, tell me you drive yourself insane with this, too. what do you wish you for?
