Morning Cup of Joe – Wish Upon A Star

Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it. Once you get it, be sure you know what to do with it. Most of us ask for things we really don’t want. I had a friend who was working but absolutely hated her job. She would complain about it daily and discover new things that were wrong with her co-workers. Her wish was to get fired. She wished upon every star in the sky that her employers would dismiss her but they didn’t.

One morning she followed her same routine; she arrived in a bad mood wishing her normal wish. Later that same afternoon, she was summoned to Human Resources for a meeting. The meeting lasted a few minutes and at the conclusion of the meeting, her wish had been granted. She didn’t know how to react; naturally she didn’t see it coming or did she? She didn’t have a plan b after she got what she was asking for.

Again, be careful what you wish for. Here’s a person who was gainfully employed with a great organization wishing she’d get fired. Well, she got what she wished for. Now what? Before you experience a similar fate, if in fact you are the type to make wishes, I encourage you to wish for good things. At least you won’t be disappointed when it comes true.

To The Top!
