Dandelion Wishes

Some people don't make wishes.  Forget the birthday candles.  Forget shooting stars.  Forget 11:11.  Forget throwing a penny into a fountain.  
To some, wishes might seem nonsensical; a passive action to a purposeful life.  Why wish, when you have the power within yourself to make all possibilities, hopes and dreams come true?  Are we too old to believe in fairy tales?  
I don't know, maybe it's the little girl within me that leaps for joy when I stumble upon a dandelion.  Feeling uninhibited, I lay down in the cool grass, pick it's long stem and ponder what wish I may grant this beautiful weed flower, as I hold it delicately between my fingers.  Once my head and my heart have aligned, I blissfully watch all of its seeds parachute into the wind as I blow it a kiss, and make my wish.
I know only I have the power to create my own destiny.  But I also make wishes.  Because you never know when the Universe is listening.  And when it is, I want the Universe to know exactly what I have in store for it. 

Happy Friday Everyone.

I love this. I used to wish upon a dandelion every time I saw one... and now my older, jaded self has forsaken them! Well no more... next time a dandelion crosses my path a wish will be made!

Beautiful photos! I think being able to wish, even after having faced harsh realities of life is a true gift. Never let that go!
I make a wish on so many things, 11:11, even the eyelash thing mentioned by Steffy above ;)
It is believing in what you do that acutally makes it come true.
Your post reminded me of a quote I used to hear in Germany "Der Glaube kann Berge versetzen" trans. "Faith can move mountains."
I really think that making a wish and having faith in it can give us strength to make anything happen.

Beautiful pictures!

It doesn't matter how old we are, we should never give up our dreams and wishes even when they seem unreachable or when you've had a's about picking yourself up, dusting yourself off and trying again!

I love this! I wish on fallen eyelashes ALL the time. And not just any wish, I take a second to really think of what I truly want said universe to know...because you're right, you never know!

amazing photo of you.

I think we do have the power to make our own wishes! Especially considering that,for me, every wish I make is something I can make happen. But it is nice sometimes to make a wish and believe in the magic in it.

I love the new button! I definitely need to make one!

I love how you said "I want the Universe to know exactly what I have in store for it. " So lovely that you're not leaving it up to chance or luck, that you fully intend to make your wish come true. So inspirational!

Have a great weekend!

What a sweet and sincere post. I love the last line, "And when it is, I want the Universe to know exactly what I have in store for it." Simply beautiful.

As a kid, I always wished on dandelions, stars, birthday candles. It was that momentous occasion where you think of one thing, and one thing only, and wish it to life!! :)

Such an adorable post! I wish on shooting stars when I see them, but most of the time I just pray.
