just one wish

I like to dream. For me I think it's essential to let my mind drift off to a place which is carefree and calm.

Sometimes when I've done this I have wondered if there was just one wish available to me, what is it that I would change about our current situation?

These wishes have changed over time. Depends largely on what is going on in our world at the time.

At the moment my wish would be to have a '5 second delay' button. A big shiny button that we could both push before words are exchanged, actions taken, feelings hurt and we start to slide backwards.

We are currently working on a way to implement our own '5 second delay' button. Our success has been mixed but we are giving it a go.

Changing old habits is hard. But trying something different is certainly worth it. For us at the moment it requires discipline, trust, honesty, letting go of fear, reflection and courage.

We are trying to use different words when talking with one another, raising our hand when the mood is tense and asking one another what we can do differently.

Until I meet my fairy godmother or find some magic fairy dust to sprinkle over us it will be up to us to find our '5 second delay' button.

Do you have one wish? Have you tried to change old habits and how have you had success?

It's daffodil time in my garden, what a happy flower full of sunshine they are!


  1. Gorgeous flowers :)

    There's a lot of things I'd like to change, but haven't really had any success due to my laziness.

    Good luck with the 5 second delay button. Sounds like a great idea.

    1. Thanks so much. I planted 250 bulbs this year so things are looking pretty cheerful in my garden. Change is no doubt hard, we have lots of good intentions and not all of them become a reality. I'll keep you posted on our success with our 'delay button'.
