Good advise if you can take it. Most people would take it and keep on wishing. It’s hard to start doing instead of wishing. I know. I’ve been there.

Spend a whole lot of my life wishing. For the bigger house, the fancier car, the improved phone. Anything I felt would make my life better. Make me happier, but it doesn’t work like that. I learned that the hard way.

Instead of that bigger house and fancier car, I got a divorce and a one-bedroom apartment in a part of town I wouldn’t wish on my worse enemies. Not that I have any worse enemies, at least not now. Except my Ex and enough said there.

I won’t lecture you on wishing and doing. It’s something you have to work out on your own much as I wish somebody had told me about the differences early on.

I working it now. Trying to do instead of wish. Trying to find the way to make my dreams come true. Cause I have dreams, yes, sir I do. And dreams I hope to make my reality. It ain’t easy, but then good things never are.

So, are you doing or wishing?
