Some people say it's foolish or stupid to wish on a star or kiss the clock at 11:11.
What's wrong with wishing? Sure, you might not get what you want. But hope is a human characteristic. Without it we wouldn't dream, and without dreams what could we accomplish? On a more intellectual note, just saying your goals out loud or writing them down cements them in your subconscious, and that part of the mind can do amazing things.
So I'm going to keep wishing, thank you very much. But I'm not going to stop working for those wishes to come true.
