WISHES & counting...
significant in human life
They may be defined as a hope, dream or love for something.
Their presence felt from folklore to literature. While fiction is about supernatural wishes, sometimes entire tales revolve
around wishes. Classically, the wish provider is a Genie, or spirit, after all who can ever forget the Aladdin's lamp
or a container closed with Solomon's seal.
Some cultures encourage people to make a wish such wishing upon
a shooting star at night, tossing a coin into a well, or blowing out the candles on a birthday cake. When times are tough,
they offer us the much-needed comfort, giving us a glimmer of hope and luck. Wishing plays a pivotal role in hope, love and
goal setting. It's not always possible to guess the cause of happiness or the reason behind a particular demand. As a
result, people often land up wishing for the “wrong” things.
Wishes can reveal the nature of an individual,
and interestingly act as connections between human beings with similar wishes, bringing people together. It would be no exaggeration
to affirm that every endeavour kick-starts with a wish. Human beings are born with an innate aptitude to create what they
want. What is required is the understanding of how to "turn on" this ability. We all wish for something but do we
wish for the right thing....
Why not make your one wish today for FREE! and
join the Thousand's who have turned their wishes & dreams into hope & reality....
Remember wishes made for the good never go wasted; you can change your life, your friend’s lives and your family’s
lives... with just one wish!
for the World to Hear!
One Wish... Hmmm... During the course of my life I had made some very bad
mistakes and displayed some really poor judgment. In result, I have cost my loving parents a vast amount of money in which
I feel that I will never be able to pay back within my lifetime. Furthermore, because of my mistakes, I have plummeted
to the very bottom of the well of unhappiness. It is when I was at the lowest of lows that I realized that life is about the
happiness of others and the pursuit and act of making others happy.
I have never been happier than when I was
making other people happy. I discovered that hard work, and determination is well worth the effort when all of that work and
effort is put into the happiness of other people. Ever since I discovered this, I have given so much to those who are less
fortunate and in need of someone who cares. Because of these decisions, I do not have much of anything. I do not have a car...
I gave my car to someone who needed it more than I did. I have given away most of my furniture and clothes to less fortunate
people. All of this giving has left me with very little as far as material things go. As for happiness, I am very wealthy.
However, I have nothing left to give.
Everything that I work for now goes to bills and other things that I need
for myself just to live. If I had one wish... it would be to win a very big lottery. Not so I can have big house or nice cars
or expensive things. That type of stuff does nothing for me at all. However, I want to travel across the world and help as
many people as I can. A lottery would give me the opportunity to help people from all cultures, and pay my parents back entirely
for everything they have given me, and still take care of myself.
All I would get myself would be a small 2-3
bedroom house on 2 acres of land, one little car and one nice truck (so I can haul stuff to the people that I am helping).
Plus a truck will make it possible to help people who are stuck, and they are useful in so many ways. Of course, I need furniture
and clothes, but nothing fancy by no means. I'm a very simple guy with a very big heart. The rest of the money will be
spent on traveling to help people, and the charity foundation that I want to start. The H.O.H.T. Foundation The second H is
silent, which makes the correct pronunciation "HOT" Foundation. H.O.H.T. stands for Helping Others Help Themselves.
My dream is to travel and donate money to individuals and families who really need the money and teach and help
these people to take care of themselves in ways that they are not used to because of the lack of money. I am sure that if
I was to give 10 or 20 thousand dollars to a very poor family who has never had that much money, they would have no clue of
where to go or how to start. I have never even seen that much money. I am by today's standards "poor" myself.
I only make around $15-$16,000/year which is practically nothing.
If it wasn't for my parents, I would be
homeless myself. I am still happy though, I have made a lot of people smile. I have given $100 to a guy at work who had a
seizure and was out of work for two months. I bought another guy and his family a cell phone and paid his bill for them, as
long as I could (I eventually had to stop because the $55/month was cutting into my bill money, and I was behind on payments).
The family was very nice and understood. Fortunately, they could take over the payments and keep the cell phone. Any
ways... That is my wish.
Why you may be asking don't I just work hard and make enough money to make your dream
come true? Well, like I said, I have made some very bad decisions in my past, which eliminate me from being able to make the
kind of money it would take to do what I want to do. I do work hard; I work very, very hard. I work my butt off and barely
make enough to get by. In the past before I messed things up I used to work for a company as a Tech Supervisor for HP computers
and Technology. I didn't work half as hard, and did 80% less work (mentally and physically) than at the job I work at
now but I made around $62,000/year. Why is that? At my present job I work so hard that when I get home I am mentally and physically
broke down. Work is so strenuous and physical and yet I only make $8.50/hr. These are the only types of jobs that I can get
so there is no way I can accomplish my dream working in these types of jobs. That is why I need to win the lottery. If I win,
I promise on my life, and everything that it is important to me that I will help as many people
as I can before I die. I will be smart with the money, hire a lawyer and a financial advisor explain to them what it is that
I want to do and then BAM... I am off to help change the world. That is my wish, my dream and my life! To help change the
world in a positive way and promote peace and love! Good-Luck everybody with their dreams and wishes and I hope that everyone
who needs and deserves their wishes to come true has them granted. Never lose hope and never give up. Stay strong and always
remember that there IS someone out there who cares and believes in you.
Smile and try to always be happy and positive
to stop poverty
Love is All That Matters
you wish for love, then you are not alone. Love is wished for by most people, no matter what language they speak, or where
they live, or how much they earn. Love knows no boundaries of age, location or gender, in fact, philosophers around the world
equal Love with God! When you wish for love, it’s as if you wish for God. No one feels complete in life, unless they
are loved by someone or have someone to love. There is perhaps no other thing in this world that can make anyone as happy
as love does. Some keep their love a secret while others share it with the world.
The Good Luck Wish
doesn't want good luck? Most people pray to God for good marks in exams, a life partner, to make them rich overnight and
what not! However,luck is so notorious that though at times it acts in favor, there are times when it ditches too. We wish
each other luck before beginning something important or when we go for an exam or a business meeting. After all, we all wish
to be blessed with prosperity. There are many who make regular visits to fortune-tellers to know if luck will favor them in
the future. There are also certain objects that we consider to be lucky. This differs from culture to culture – from
hanging horseshoes at the front door of a house, to putting coins under doorsteps to bring financial gains in the family.
Four-leaf clovers, rabbits foot and fortune frogs are some of the common symbols of good luck that are found in Western and
Wish to Become Famous
Fame is what many crave for but only a handful succeeds in
accomplishing it. Those who are lucky become famous while others fade out with the wish to become well-known. While some desire
to rule millions of hearts with their acting skills, many wish to be a famous athlete someday. While some foster the dream
of ruling the nation, few aspire to become millionaires. Often, when nobody was noticing, you may have thrown pennies into
the wishing well to make your wish come true. However, in reality, it is the strenuous training, experience, and persistence
that are the key ingredients to fame. Setting up of realistic goals and the realization that chances are slim of being the
next Miley Cyrus is important to keep you grounded and yet wish for the stars.
Wish for Money
wish on a dandelion fluff “I hope I become a millionaire some day.”
Those who have money, they wish
for more and those who don’t, clamour for some. Most people can benefit from having more of money in their lives. Actually,
it all begins with a simple thinking – or at least that is what studies on people who are wealthy reveal. It has been
found that people who have learnt to think about money differently are the ones who manage to make it big, albeit financially.
Making Wishes for the Family
Some people wish good things for their family while some wish to have a sweet
family. You are maybe wishing for a good relationship with your spouse or want to have another child in your family. From
health, happiness and the success of all your family members to wishing that problems between your family members are sorted
out, wishes related to the family are endless. One cannot stop wishing good for family members in every sphere of life. And
there are also those who don't have a family and wish to have one! Orphans wish for good and kind adopted parents. Lonely
singles and those who are in love look forward to starting a family. Married couples wish to extend their families by having
children or adopting them.
So what do you wish for your family? Alternatively, do you wish to have a family? Put
it down in writing. Read about what others have wished for in the family wishes section of this website. When people around
the world read about your wishes, they too will feel like wishing that your wishes come true. Let the world know what you
wish for your family. It may also happen that someone may read your wish and help you to make it come true. Don't underestimate
the power of words. Just write down that one wish that's on your mind!
Do you wish that all your wishes
It is perhaps too much to desire for all your wishes to come true. However, when you have a long list of them
and when you want them to come true sooner, then you may wish and pray to God to make all your wishes a reality! a new car,
a holiday in Hawaii with your spouse or lover, a huge pay-packet, and what not! In fact, there seems to be no end to our wishes
all through our lives. Sometimes we wish for others too and wish that all of them come true. Perhaps you want your children
to get into college, get a job, get a good life, or you want people to live in peace and harmony.
No matter what
you wish for, wouldn’t it be great if people around the world knew about them and pray that they come true? In fact,
it is believed that more people pray for a certain thing to happen, all the vibrations and the will powers of different individuals
work together to make that happen. So, why not let the world know about all your wishes and pray for them to come true.
Wishing for Your Relationship
to Work Out Well
Relationships are delicate. Unless you tend to them with a lot of love, care and attention, they may
die sooner even before you realize. We wish our love to stay by our side forever, but destiny may have something else in store.
Those who are single may wish to fall in love and be in a relationship. The silver lining is wishes often do come true. All
you have to do is wish. If you don’t wish, then how can you expect them to come true in the first place? Most people
don’t want their relationships to stumble midway and keep wishing for it to work out until the end of their lives.
How about sharing your wishes here with the rest of the world? You never know. The love of your life may read about
your secret wish and fall in love with you even more. And if you are single and in a mood to mingle, you can read about the
wish for another lonely heart from any part of our world, and connect with them to make a foundation for a happy relationship.
If you have just one wish to make, and it is the success of your relationship, then don’t hesitate and speak out. It
will come true!
Let Peace Prevail On Earth
As if there wasn't a dearth of natural calamities like
floods, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions to kill us, that people all around the world make war! As if they’re bent
on eliminating the human race. Wonder what the government around the world gain by war? However, we do all lose a part of
us with each war or act of violence that takes place on this earth. With the advancement in civilization, we are supposed
to live in peace and harmony. Somehow, the wheel seems to be turning backwards towards the ancient barbaric days when people
used to kill each other at the drop of a hat. Racial attacks, communal violence and hatred for neighbouring countries don’t
show any signs of decline.
So, if you wish for world peace and a more civilized world, then let the world know
about it. Check out the section on peace wishes and feel connected to the people around the world who wish for the same. Each
thought, each belief, and each wish matters.
Don't Let Hope Leave You Ever
Hope is what keeps us going!
Those who lose hope about life hardly have anything to live for. They may think that their life is not worth living. If you
are going through a very bad phase in life, then hoping for the return of the good times makes you work hard to bring them
back. Hope is all around us in the world. All you need to do is look for it, and it will be yours. You just have to believe
that whatever you are hoping for will actually happen, and the good vibrations that you generate as a result of it will help
to make your hope a reality.
Hope is something that you shouldn't keep to yourself only. Share your hopes
with the world and learn what others hope for. The Hope Wishes section lets you put down your hopes in words. The moment you
write it down, your conviction becomes stronger than what you hoped or wished for to come true. You feel good about it and
work towards it to make it a success. Don't keep your hopes a secret from the world. Share your good feelings and convictions
with people all around the world
Wish for the Wealth of Health
Health is wealth but not all of us are
endowed with it. There are many people around the globe who are suffering from deadly diseases. Good physical and mental health
is desired by one and all. However, a lot of effort is required to maintain a good health in all aspects. Even if you are
too fat or too thin, you won't be able to enjoy the benefits of a good health. Lots of exercises, healthy eating habits
and efficient stress management go into the making of a healthy body, mind and heart.
If you are suffering from
a disease and wish to be healthy, then write about it at the Health Wishes section. People around the world will read your
wish and learn about your problems. You can also get to know what health problem's others are bothered with. It is even
possible that after reading your wish, someone may come to help you to make your wish a reality. So, never stop wishing for
a wonderful health. However, also keep working hard to attain that perfect healthy body and mind. In fact, if you wish for
good health is fulfilled, then your other wishes will also come true.
Have Faith in Your Wishes
in God or faith in yourself, faith is what makes you a confident human being. You must have faith in yourself and on the power
of God to have all your wishes fulfilled. Wishes made for the good never go wasted. Sometimes we are forced to face a tough
road and perhaps don’t even know where we are going. That is the time when you shouldn’t lose faith in yourself
or your ideals. More often than not, having faith is good for your psychological well being. Even if you can’t see the
end, you must have faith that you’ll reach your destination.
The word “faith” also refers to
“trust” or “belief”. Even though there are some rationalists consider faith as blind ignorance, “faith”
is that essential pillar on which our character rests. So, if you want to know what people around the world have faith in
or believe in, then check out the faith wishes section. People living in different parts of the world express their wishes
about their faith on this website. You can also share your own faith and wishes with others through One Wish. Just make the
wish that’s the most important one for you and then wait for it to come true.
Waiting to Hear Some Good
We all wait eagerly for good news – any kind of good news! It can be good news in the family, good news in
the office, some personal good news, or good news from any part of the world. The list is long but often we don’t receive
the good news that we hope for. When we open the newspaper every morning, it is cluttered with bad news like news of racial
attacks, wars, murders, thefts and economic slowdown – as if the good news has become rare! When we constantly keep
on hearing bad news all around us, it can make us depressed. Good news helps us to think positive about the world. In fact,
there are certain organizations that work towards spreading good news in the world such as the Good News Network and the Good
News Broadcast. Good news can work wonders to improve our physical and emotional health and bring prosperity in our lives.
Do You Dream of Becoming
Most of us have grown up reading Grimm’s fairytales and classic stories like Alice in Wonderland or the
Wonderful Wizard of Oz., And then we go on to read Mills and Boons and Sidney Sheldon novels in our teenage years. From detective
novels engaging us with their mystery and suspense to romance or adventures and sci-fi, there are endless genres of fiction
that you may enjoy reading. Non-fiction writers are also quite popular. Take, for example, Dale Carnegie’s “How
to Win Friends and Influence People," which has become a global bestseller in its own right. It has even been translated
into a number of languages, reaching a larger and varied audience.
No wonder that many of us wish to write a book
to narrate their own fiction or real-life tales and become famous. Nevertheless, the urge to become a writer, most of the
times, lies dormant in people who are engaged in some other full-time job. They feel that they are born to do something different,
but are unable to quit their job or find time to start upon their dream novel. So, life just goes on with the hope that someday
their wish will be fulfilled. You can now share your dreams, hopes and wishes with people around the globe and also listen
in on their stories here on one-wish.
In the Pursuit of Happiness
Happiness is something that has eluded
people for centuries. What did we not do in pursuit of happiness? From climbing mountains to diving into the depths of the
ocean, from running after money to looking for happiness wherever we thought we could find it – we haven’t left
any stone unturned. However, those who went in pursuit of it have repeatedly concluded that happiness lies within us. We just
have to look within, and it’s ours to behold. We don’t have to find it anywhere else.
So many people
all over the world feel that they are unhappy. They look everywhere other than the place where they’ll find it. And
they wish for happiness – their own happiness and that of their family and friends. At times, you may feel that you
are the unhappiest person on the face of this earth. However, wait, here you can read about the stories of others and how
they wish to be happy. You won’t feel lonely anymore, and you too can share your story with the rest of the world. Just
write about your wish for happiness and connect with millions of those who are seeking it or have already found their share!
This way, your urge to find that secret key to happiness – be it money, fame or just luck, will find new ways to fulfil
Wish to Become Financially Independent
In a world where money shapes your life and dreams, it
is extremely important to become financially independent. Loans and debts that were initially taken to maintain a good lifestyle
can become a burden later. You may also have to take loans in emergency situations in the family or business or for medical
treatment. Huge debts can be incurred as you spent more than you earned. No matter what the reason is, most of us who are
under pressure to clear off debts wish to become financially independent.
Your wish to clear off all your debts
can be done by taking steps like saving, paying the minimum amount due on credit cards, by working overtime, requesting for
money on birthdays instead of gifts, and by spending only on those things that you really need. You can also sell your unnecessary
possessions through eBay, garage sale, etc. It would be possible for you to save money only after clearing your debts. Share
your good and bad experiences and wishes with people from different parts of the world. It is possible that someone may read
your story and try to help you in realizing your dreams. When you read about the wishes of others, you’ll feel a strange
connection with those who wished for the same things that you did.
Bitten by the Travel Bug
can hit anyone anytime and if you too, might not be an exception. You, then, must be wishing for travelling to different places
and make merry. So what would be that one place that you would like to visit at least once in your lifetime? Perhaps in your
dreams you see the endless icy terrains of Antarctica or the towering pyramids of Egypt. Alternatively, maybe you want to
visit the famous Taj Mahal in India or the Great Wall of China.
Well, don’t keep your wishes a secret then!
Tell it to the whole world where you want to go. And even if it is the moon, don’t feel shy to tell us about it. What
if someone reads your wish and actually helps you to make it come true? You can also read about the different wishes to travel
of people who live across borders. So write down your most cherished travel wish and share it with the world. Be it, adventure,
hiking, historical places, cruises or any other type of travel that you wish to make, just share it with us while you wait
for it to come true. Do not underestimate the power of words – for they may just turn out to be your magic wand to that
Wish for Your Dream Destination
Ever closed your eyes and imagined yourself being transported
to the place of your dreams – your dream destination? All of us have a favourite place in their mind that they wish
to visit at least once in their lifetime. You may have heard about this place from someone’s first-hand account or a
story, may have seen a painting or photograph of this place or seen it on television or a movie. It can be a country such
as Australia or a city-like London. From the mountains of Switzerland to the beautiful Hawaiian beaches, and from Norway’s
gorges to Japan, your dream destination can be situated in any corner of the earth. It can even be an imaginary place that
may have no existence, in reality.
Whatever may be the place of your dreams that you wish to visit, why keep it
inside your heart as a secret? Share it with others and read about the dream destinations of people around the world. If you
have just one wish to make that would be the most important one in your life, then let it out on www.one-wish.co.uk. You’ll
also find it very interesting to note the different places that people like to visit on the site. In fact, you may be surprised
to find that your hometown, which you may find boring because you are used to it, is the dream destination of a person who
lives at the other end of the globe.
Wish to Become Rich
Most people in this world wish to become rich.
The reason could be that they do not have enough money all the time to fulfil all their wishes. There are certain materialistic
wishes that cannot be fulfilled without money, like having a luxurious lifestyle. Money is also essential for many other things
like getting a higher education or a good medical treatment or a surgical operation. In Italy, it is commonly said that if
you want to make money, then you can inherit it, marry it. However, there are other ways to become rich and that includes
working harder and smarter than others. An alternative but easy way to become rich overnight is by winning a lottery or discovering
a hidden treasure.
Nevertheless, not all of us are lucky in this matter. Some people also wish to find something
magical like Aladdin’s lamp that would bring out a genie to fulfil all their wishes, including the wish to live lavishly
Wish You Could Lose Weight
Obesity has become a major health hazard with us. More and more
people are entering into a sedentary lifestyle due to the nature of their work and as a result, are facing the problem of
obesity. Being excessively fat can cause you a lot of problems. You won’t get the right clothes to fit into and may
be charged extra while travelling (if not financially but psychologically for sure). The problems due to obesity are endless.
It may have an adverse effect on your relationships, your career and even your self esteem. There are so many people all over
the world whose only wish is to lose some weight and feel as light as a feather or rather have a lean and mean body!
The concept of beauty is also a contributing factor to this wish. More and more women around the world want to have a Barbie
doll-like figure. And the first step to achieve that would be to lose weight. Men are also not far behind in trying to look
their best. They actually go to great extents like surgeries to shed that extra flab. You’ll definitely feel better
when you share your problems and learn what others go through.
