Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.Les Brown
Who know’s how that old famous saying on wishes and beggars goes?
Well that’s okay, as i only just now received a whisper in my ear from my best buddy Google. He says he thinks it goes something along the lines…
If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.
Well folks, get your harnesses and stirrups ready coz we’re going on a ride. Where to? A hot, desolate desert i like to call The Three Things I Wish I Could Do Well.
Number one and probably most important, would be the ability to eat well.
You know; like a balanced diet and shit(please excuse my French, as it’s one area i desperately wish to excel in).
My diet now, currently consists of anything and everything your doctor warned you not to eat. Like for instance; yesterday i had 4 mugs of ice-cream for supper and 3 greasy burgers, 2 packs of gummy bears and a bottle of Bourbon for dessert.
Kidding. It wasn’t Bourbon, just a very young bottle of wine that looked real fine.
I really wish to start eating well; less i acquaint myself with grains of sand six feet under, way before my time.
If not for the benefit of my health, then at least to boost the relationship with my toilet as we’re currently not on good terms.
For number two, my wish would be to be a better blogger.
The type of blogger that actually spends time connecting with other bloggers, not just commenting whenever it suits him best. A better blogger in the sense that i’ll make more time to thank other bloggers for liking my posts and following my blog.
And of course, joining in on conversations that have nothing to do with poetry or literature.
Finally; for number three i wish to be a better writer of prose than i am now as I’ve focused so much on my poetry that my prose has suffered as a result.
Don’t believe me?
The proof’s in this post, I’ve been writing it since about two weeks ago yet i’m still not happy with it. Thank goodness for laptops.
How much ink and paper would i have wasted in a world deprived of tech?
I know i probably won’t reach the skill level of Kent Wayne from https://dirtyscifibuddha.com/ or that of Christian Mihai from https://artofblogging.net/ . But, if i was half as good as Shreya Vikram from http://themidnightember.wordpress.com/ then i would be extremely happy.
Well, that’s it for our ride into wishing wells.
Thanks a lot for reading my crap to the end(Oops, there goes my French again).
