I walked home today from the gym, I got a membership today.
Two years ago I wished for this. I wished I could afford a gym membership or a cell phone membership or cable internet. Today I have all three.
Two years ago I wished I lived in a nice apartment or in a nice neighborhood. Today live in a nice apartment in a nice neighborhood (with inexpensive rent!)
Two years ago I wished I could break even. Today I have no debt but student loans, and I have money left over at the end of the month for entertainment.
Two years ago I wished I was beautiful, no one would even look at me except men with a fat fetish. Today I have lost 25 pounds and am passibly attractive. More importantly my energy has doubled (Thats like carrying a set of 12 pound dumbells with you everywhere you go!)
Two years ago I wished it was easier to get to work, it took me 2 hours and required 3 buses, which dropped off and picked up in depressed neighborhoods. Today I take one bus, that picks up a block from my house, and connect to a light rail train, and the whole process only takes an hour- less than it would with a car!
Two years ago I wished I had something to be proud of, to have accomplished something. Today I can say I had the courage to apply for the flight attendant job and the tour guide position, even though I didn't think I would get either one, but I did.
Two years ago I wished I had trustworthy, friends. Today I have them and see them regularly. I had them back then too, but I was
too busy wasting my time with trendy assholes.
Two years ago I wished I had peace of mind. If all of these wishes came true, maybe in two years I will have that too.
