OK apart from world peace and calorie free chocolate that tastes exactly like the real thing, what do you really want for Christmas?
Its funny, when we are little children we ask for exactly what we want and quite often we get it but as we get older we stop focusing on what we really want and start to focus on what we think we can get. After a while we often even forget what we really want and learn to settle for what we’re given.
When I was 6 I asked for a pony for Christmas. I can’t remember what I got but there was no pony in my stocking. I asked again for the next two years, birthdays too but still no pony. Coming up to my 9th Christmas I tried a different tactic. I wrote to Santa and told him if I couldn’t have a pony this year I didn’t want anything else – could he just save up all my Christmas and birthday presents until he could afford to give me a pony. It seemed to do the trick!
What would your life be like if you only settled for what you really wanted?
Well for one thing it would be a lot less cluttered!
