Let’s Wish

Tonight, I am tired. The week has been long and stressful. Today, my daughter turned 16. It was bitter sweet. I love the person she is and the person she is becoming. I can’t believe it has been 16 years since she came into my world. I feel old tonight.

So I started wishing that I was just a few years younger, and wishing to be different than I am now.

I realized those are not the right kind of wishes. I would miss so much if those wishes came true. So, instead, I wished to be able to more present with my children. I wished to be more present with myself. I wish to be more me and less trying to be other’s versions of me.

What would you wish for?
