11:11 Wishes

Today, I’m really grateful for all the 11:11 wishes, birthday candle wishes, shooting star wishes, and all other kinds of wishes that DIDN’T come true. Looking back I realize I’ve wasted my wishes on lots of things. And I am so glad that I am not going to end up marrying the boy I wished I would marry in the sixth grade. Or the seventh. Or the tenth. Whatever, it’s fine. I am so grateful that I didn’t get this or make that or become this and that and the other. Because my life has turned out exactly how it is supposed to. And I wouldn’t change a thing. Yes, I’m still going to make wishes. And yes, it would’ve been nice to have that pony I wished for so many times. And yes, there are things in my life that I want to be better or different. But if I had to change anything else to get those few things to be perfect, it wouldn’t be worth it. I have an amazing family who loves and cares about me, I go to an awesome school where I feel the Spirit every single day, I have an amazing ward full of incredible girls, I have the best roommates who are all so different, but we click. I have an amazing best friend who is always here for me, especially when nobody else is. Basically, the wishes that didn’t come true have lead me to everything I ever dreamed of. So thanks to that shooting star wish that didn’t pan out, thanks to that birthday cake wish that never came true. It was perfect 🙂
