I can't believe I forgot about my Wish Book!!!! Now hear me out. I'm not crazy, really. About 17 years ago I was going thru a really rough patch in my life. My wedding had been called off, I was short on money, I was living in a crappy apartment, I was lonely. I read about making a wish book in a book I was reading-- I think it was Chicken Soup for the Soul. You take a journal or blank book (I used a photo album) and add pictures and images of all the things you want in life. So I did it. I put in pictures of couples in love. Of people getting married. Of wedding rings. I loved log homes, so I put in some pictures of some nice ones. I added pictures of children and flowers and gardens and dogs. I had a dog, but I added pictures of the same breed because I loved them so much. Well, I made the book and put it away. A few months later, I started hanging out with a guy I used to work with. Pretty soon we were dating. He had a dog, and his dog got along with my dog. :lol: We had a lot in common. He loved log homes too. In fact, he had just bought one. Well, we ended up getting married. I moved into his log home and we created beautiful gardens together. I got a better job and made more money. And then we had a beautiful family. We have a gorgeous son and daughter. We will have our 16th wedding anniversary next week. We no longer live in the log home, but we love our new home, and have made beautiful gardens and memories here. I don't believe in magic or ghosts or anything like that. And maybe it's coincidence, but I think it's the power of suggestion. When you see images of what you want, it clarifies your focus and you go after what you want. Most of what I put in that book came true. I did put pictures of horses in, but eventually decided I didn't really want the expense of one along with the time they consume. But guess what, last year I inherited my MIL's horse. It's actually still stabled in another state, and is really too old to ride or move, but I DO have a horse. LOL I did receive another dog of the same breed type that I love for free a few years ago...she just arrived into my life because she needed a home and the friend of a friend knew that I liked the breed. I got her for free although she was a purebred worth a great deal of money. (I like mutts, too, btw). So I am off to find clippings of teachers, students, classrooms, and school supplies. Just thought I'd share. Try it, it can't hurt!
