Be careful what you wish for...

That old adage has come into play quite recently in, not only my life, but others around me, as well as yours I presume. When one wants something desperately in to be beaten in the head after getting what you wanted and realizing you should of never asked for it to begin with.

This has happened in my life on, unfortunately, several occasions. I'll dream and hope that one day my wish will come true. Then when I finally get what I want, I end up wishing for it to go away. Whether it be poor timing, extenuating circumstances, or just plain stupidity on my part, things usually take a turn for the worst.

Having said all that, I do have to say I don't regret a moment of it. If anything, I emerged from each situation with a clarity I wish I had possessed previously. I find myself being more exact with my dreams, thereby figuring out exactly what it is I want of my life and self. Not to mention one realizes how powerful a wish can actually be. Being able to will something into happening and then basking in the horrific failure of it is something special. Yet, that won't stop me from wishing and hoping for that which I know will bring me joy, thanks to the poundings that I did take. Now I just know to be a bit clearer or if not a world of trouble awaits.

One of my friends recently went through a bout with the wish fairy. Needless to say the wish fairy kicked her ass, giving her all that she wanted and more. The more being a royal pain in her heart and a massive deficit in her bank account. Not to mention the slashed tires and random calls at three in the morning. As if to add insult to injury she told her family what had happened to which they had one reply, "Well, you should be careful what you wish for, you just might get it."
