I was watched the movie, 12 Wishes of Christmas last night. I love holiday movies and so I snuggled up under the covers and looked forward to the two hours ahead.
The main character was unhappy, her life was not going according to plans, so she went to see a life coach who gave her 12 wishes. She was told to go the life coach’s website, accept the terms and conditions (which she doesn’t read), and wish away.
Each of her wishes, while fun, wonderful, and enlivening, had a clear agenda – to give herself an advantage. Yet she could not see the rippling consequences – and some were definitely negative – landing her even worse shape than when she started.
In the end, the main character realized that changes for herself and others start and end with what’s in her heart – and helping others. Once she did, her life blossomed and so did everyone else’s around her.
My lesson was this – wishing is great and yet real riches come from my willingness to transform myself.
Have a great Tuesday,
