Now that you have made a wish or learned a bit the history behind making a wish tradition, why not come back to reality and ask yourself a question, "Are you in complete charge of your life?" And that was the question that Stuart Fish asked, which marked the very topic of BlogFEST of the day --
Interesting question, in fact very inspiring one! Looking back in my life, I am always in complete charge, be in education, relationship, and my family. However ... recently I have discovered that I have been ignoring certain aspect of my life that I need to take charge, caring for my loved ones. I always do --in my own way. I used to spend tons of time with my kids --always available. Ever since they are more independent, I have filled the blank with more activities --mainly with blogging and works. I believe it was couple months ago, looking at both my own mother and my mother-in-law, I felt that time have gone by so fast and yet I have been keeping them waiting. Waiting for my up-close attention, no matter where they are. I am a personable person, meaning if they are in front of me, I am very close to them. Once they are gone, my feeling starting to have distance --not that I don't care but I just don't have enough cycle of my day to reach out to them.
All of sudden, I felt like this is the part of my life that I would like to take charge now --wanting to spend more time with them, caring for them before it is too late. I don't want to wake up someday regretting that I haven't paying much attention to both my mom and mother-in-law even they are distance away. As much as I dislike talking on the phone, I am making extra efforts to call --reaching to them and chatting with them. And that somehow have made me completely in charge of my life at this very moment.
Enough about me, how about you? If you could take charge of one aspect of your life right now, what would it be?
Until next stop,
