If you could have three things in life...

If you could distil your hopes and desire into three wishes for your life what would they be?

That one's easy: to be happy, to be healthy, and to see those same blessings bestowed upon my friends and family.

Let me first apologize because my wishes are selfish.


1. To never fail my family
2. To fall in love
3. To have her be constantly happy with me
Why don't you really tell me how you feel!

I wish for myself. . .

1. To listen more than I speak--and to listen in an active, compassionate manner.

2. To be conscious of my values and act on them in a way that benefits society.

3. To live in optimism and faith

Oh, my! I got goosebumps reading your post, Malia. Seriously.

I would echo Malia's sentiments, although not nearly as eloquently. Does that mean I need to read more poetry -- or drink more tea? :wink:

Beautifully said, Miss Malia.

Mine would be:

1. To love

2. To love

3. To recieve love

:roll: I'm utterly predictable...
