Story # 255: Sometimes

Sometimes I wish I were still a kid.
Sometimes I am glad I am not childish and naive.
Sometimes I wish I were older, like in the mid 30s.
Sometimes I am glad I am still young.
Sometimes I wish I already have a few kids.
Sometimes I am glad I don't have any.
Sometimes I wish I were in Malaysia.
Sometimes I am glad I am not in Malaysia.
Sometimes I wish I have traveled the world.
Sometimes I am glad I still have so many places left to be seen.
Sometimes I wish I live in Hawaii.
Sometimes I am glad I don't live on that island.
Sometimes I wish I were somebody else.
Sometimes I am glad I am myself.
Sometimes I wish I know everything.
Sometimes I am glad I still have room for more knowledge.
Sometimes I wish I have a ton of money.
Sometimes I am glad I don't.

Sometimes we just need to be happy with what we've already got. Take the "I wish" away and bring in more "I am glad". Rather than wishing what you are not, we can just be satisfied with who we are. I think that is when we can live the happiest.

Sometimes it is okay to wish, right? LOL.. Just kidding.
