Do you believe in positive thought? I don’t know if I do. And if I do, I believe that it should be reserved for people who really need it. Me, I don’t fall into that category.

But here’s what I want to say anyway: I want something unlikely to happen. I want a series of events to take place, events I have little control over. I’m working very hard, but so much of it is up to chance. Our future has never looked so uncertain, in so many ways.

I am closing my eyes and clicking my heels. From here to there. Oh please.

If you’re the wishing sort, wish me luck. For now all I can tell you is that I am shooting for the goddamned stars.

Good luck! Wish my Mom luck for her back surgery tomorrow?! I should be in bed since I have to get her to the hospital by 6am, but I’m too nervous to sleep. Your dream looks lovely, so I hope you get it.

I’m guessing you want this CHARMING HOUSE. If so, I’ll put in a request with the universe on your behalf.

We’re at a crossroads too and wishing like hell that something really awesome would happen.

It’s pure agony. Hang in there.

..I could use a dream or a genie or a wish…

You’ve got my wishing powers at work. I really hope this works out the way you want it to.

I’ll put in a shameless plug for my coaching services. A positive thought rarely works but combine a positive thought with a little bit of action behind it and sometimes (often, actually) magic happens. In the meantime, keep clicking those heels.

I really (like, really, not just in theory and not just in words) truly believe that when you throw your hands up and just let the cards fall, you’ll always come out better than okay.

I think that just positive thinking and blind faith can move mountains.

I think you’re on your way to something great.

And I think no one deserves it more.

I absolutely, unequivocally believe in the power of positive thought.

There is a Natural Law of the Universe that states the images you hold in your mind most often materialize in results in your life. Energy moves into physical form. Believe it, and it will be.

Crossing all crossables for you!

And also? *Everyone* deserves the power of positive thinking. There is never a shortage, so it doesn’t translate into who “needs” it most. Plenty to go around for everyone…

I really, really hope that it all falls into place for you. You totally deserve it! I will be thinking positive thoughts for you.

Now, if we could only get this wishing stuff to work on winning the lottery (even though I never buy lotto tickets) that would be AWESOME! :)

Wow, you are doing it! We’ve dared to dream but are hogtied by a mortgage and the security of our city jobs. But you guys are DOING it! Fingers and toes are crossed, positive thoughts are flying your way.

I think this leap is a good thing. Whether you land well or not, whether you struggle or not, the LIVING is important, not just as a human ‘being’ but as a human LIVING makes a difference in the quality of their own life and in the lives they touch as well.

If you ‘fail’ (odd word that, because if you learn from something, it isn’t a failure at all), you still have the memory. And then you can do it again, only better!

Positive thoughts coming your way from downunder. And hoping I might find my equivalent here. (though I’m also looking at the size of the lawn and thinking you’ll need a bloody big lawnmower… uh oh….and some earplugs and maybe a blindfold as well for Dylan!

Oh, I am ABSOLUTELY the wishing sort. Will wish on stars, eyelashes, yellow lights, the clasp on my necklace, white horses, ladybugs, and coins in fountains for you to get what you want. :)

Wishing so hard for you right now, SO HARD. Crossing fingers, even. (Only one hand, though. I heard both hands was unlucky. I don’t know why.)

I am a serial lurker but this is one post I HAVE to chime in on. What you have been going through lately has really played on my mind, I think you have articulated what so many of us think and feel on a daily basis. That desperate struggle between getting by and coping and making do, versus actually taking that immeasurable risk and daring to believe that we could have what we have only dreamed of. God I hope your dreams come true!

Dreams can come true! We worked hard for several years and our dream came true. We were finally able to buy a larger home out in the country so the kids would grow up with plenty of room to roam.

Best wishes that your dream comes true soon!

Holy crap that is a nice house. There is no way in hell we could ever afford something like that. Go for it!!

A series of seemingly unrelated events (some of them downright SHITTY) have led to a great thing happening to me recently. Without every single one of those crappy events, it wouldn’t have been possible to have come to where I am.

I hope all the fog & uncertainty & seemingly unrelated events are all conspiring to bring you something amazing, too. :)

And, FYI, that house is a carbon copy (add a giant rock & a river out back, though) of a friend’s old cottage. That place had a certain magic about it. You never know, dude. You never know in life.

Dear Cosmos,

There is this stunnning woman on the internet, with two awesome boys, and a super dad and they seem to be longing for a beautiful house that makes her blog entries hum with anticipation and desire. There will be more joy in the world if this works out just the way it should for her and her family. I humbly ask the cosmos for help in getting this great woman what she desires.

I’d say you’re in the category of someone who deserves positive thoughts. Sending every one I can muster for you until this dream comes true. What a beautiful place to raise those boys and write your words. And look at all the stuff to jump from! Woo!
