I saw this posted on one of my friend's journals and thought it was a neat little thing =)
Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and random-related ("I'd love a ____ icon that's just for me.") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD.") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
If you wish for real life things (not stories or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you. ( They could always just leave a comment on LJ or use LJ chat or something to contact the person. . . )
Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.
Surf around your friends list (or friends friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:
If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use — or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free — do it.
You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf — to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not — it's your call.
There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.
So here is my wish list....me, anemommy...
My first wishes are kind of abstract, but important to me. Of course, because of their nature, they are probably things I will need to make come true myself....but helpful advise or encouragement are always valuable.
To know what I want and to know what will make me really happy.
To recover fully from that stupid car accident and have my body back. A day without pain. Wow!
To advance to new levels personally and professionally.
To move to a warmer climate. I just can't bear the cold anymore. Although, I would still want to take a trip here in the winter and go snow shoeing and on a sleigh ride. Around Christmas time would be nice and visit family. But it would be a vacation and not everyday life. That would make it enjoyable and not burdensome like now. I am looking for jobs in Hawaii in hopes of finding the PERFECT high paying job there.
The PERFECT high paying job. Well, right now I am in the jewelry profession. I have been for some time and I do love it in a way. But the job I have now is getting boring and I need to grow and advance to another level. And since I need to move to a warmer climate, I will look for something in my career. I love color gemstones and pearls are my favorite gemstone. There must be a good pearl market in Hawaii. I found a company that sells black coral jewelry and statues, but it is a management position, and although I am not opposed to being at management level I don't want to be married to a job. The PERFECT job would not suck up my entire life. I need more free time to advance in my personal pursuits.
Personal pursuits would include wishes for learning more about the universe and people and how to get everything I want in life and more! To have time to have fun, good times with good people. And to meet a special someone that is good for me and shares my love of romance and excitement of learning and growing.
I need someone that has a kind heart and is of high intelligence to keep up with me. I could write a book about this one, but I won't. Just so long as I can grow and advance personally, I can give myself the intellectual stimulation from outside sources. It would be nice to share it all and to discuss it all with a special someone of the opposite sex though.
I wish for a larger house to call my home. Of course, that will come when I move to a warmer climate like Hawaii. I love the hacienda style homes, the indoor, outdoor living. The verandas, the open rooms that are not like square small boxes to live in. (Do they have them on the islands?) Give me rooms shaped in triangles that branch out to greet you, and levels that add dimension. Why do we live in flat square box homes here in New England? Probably cos it is so cold! lol.
I wish for better health for me and my loved ones.
Did someone say dance lessons? I so miss dancing! I would love to take ballroom dance lessons again. I wish for a perfect dance partner. : )~
I wish for a new car. This little Beetle has served me well but it's best days are over. I want something bigger and comfier now. A quiet ride with a sunroof or moonroof or whatever they call them these days! To think I used to sell cars! lol. And a good sound system so I can enjoy listening to music as I drive. Or....perhaps a Ford Mustang Convertable. Hmmm....we'll see. But a new car. And I'll buy it new when I get to the island. That is unless someone reading this wants to buy it for me. teehee.
And world peace.
LOL!! Now you can crown me the new Ms. America! There she is, Ms. America, Beautiful with blue eyes. Blonde hair and stunning, and wonderful and cunning, she can mesmerize you with her smile. There she is, Ms. America, she used to be Ms. Hawaii. LOL! Sometimes I kill myself....Do they still do this anymore? Wow, not having a TV keeps you uninformed about some silly things in the world. Oh yah, that's the idea. Current Mood: amused
