They say be careful what you wish for, as it can become reality.
A wish is a powerful thought, sometimes an excuse for something you’ve already done, and more often an uncontrolled doing. A soul-move. If that’s the theory to stick with, we should be very conscious about the public around us.
Hurricane Sandy’s wish was to destroy everything. People’s wish was to survive. Survivals’ wish is to get power and water back in their taps. And out of their homes. A future wish will be to get Sandy out of our hearts and minds. May God grant it.
Politicians wish to win. Politicians wish the other to fail. Yet, it also says “don’t do anything to others that you don’t want them doing to you”. Therefore, those fail themselves.
Poor wish to be richer. Rich wish to have more freedoms and fewer obligations. Poor wish to have “these problems”.
Workers wish a greater compensation. Employers wish better performance. Tax authorities wish higher tax rates. Some politicians too. Employees wish all this discussion to be over.
Celebrities wish to be popular. Lady Gaga wished to be topless “Princess Cannabis” for Halloween. I wished I could know where to start this discussion. She wishes to be a Monster too. Perhaps that is a valid explanation.
Stores wish to have more customers. Customers wish to have more stores. Both wish customers to have more funds to spend. A mutual agreement.
Moms wish their kids to become somebody. To meet somebody. And never forget their moms. Kids wish their moms would keep quiet. Adults wish their moms would speak forever.
Fathers wish their daughters happiness. Daughters wish freedom. Freedom defines happiness, they think. And when they get it, they think the opposite.
All in all, we wish what we cannot have. When we get it, we wish to either never have or never lose it again. But wish comes first. Wish represents a desire, passion and is followed by an action to get it.
That is New York. New York wishes everyone the “Go-Getter-Mentality”.
And we wish New York to stay strong and come back on its feet even more fabulous than before.
May God grant it.
Live 2 Love NY, kids. Live to love it.
