I have a magic wand. I bought it at a music festival vendor. I fully expected it to work for me. That wasn’t unreasonable of me, was it? I mean, I’ve watched many shows on TV where these things worked. Like magic. Heck, I grew up with Samantha Stephens who could wiggle her nose and make things change. So why can’t this wand work for me? It doesn’t require batteries. Believe me, I checked that out before I bought it. I heard the battery operated versions of these things really suck the batteries dry quickly. I’d be replacing them a lot. I’ve tried different incantations. Alas, to no avail. Nothing seems to work.
Imagine if it did work though. The things I could do with it. I would be able to complete the paperwork I am supposed to be doing right now……instead of writing this post. I could deal with the piles of paper that inhabit my office. There aren’t that many, but man, it is hard to get around to doing something with them…..piles just seem to work for me. And sometimes grow. The wand would clear the little clutter spots that have grown in my house. It would make the growing dust bunnies in the corners disappear. Maybe another dog would arise out of them……it is shedding season after all.
If this magic worked, I would only use it for good. For things that improve this world and our space. World peace, end of poverty, that kind of thing. I’d probably take more vacations in sunny climes. I’d have no clutter in my life.
I suppose that since I don’t have a functional magic wand, I’ll have to just create my own magic. Start that darned report. Finish it! Clear any clutter bit by bit. Create the little changes in my life and my world that will make the biggest differences. Find allies so we have a team of people doing this magic.
We all have the power to make some magic in our own lives and in the lives of others.
Where will you work your magic?
