Jim: Treasure Your Wishes

“When you wish for something strongly enough,” my father once said, “your mind will make that wish come true.”

As a young man, I earnestly wished for a loving and beautiful wife. I married Nancy less than two years later.

Next, I wished for material wealth. That took somewhat longer: we weren’t comfortably wealthy for another twenty years. But hard work and tireless dedication to my goal eventually paid off.

Then Nancy left. I couldn’t blame her because I’d increasingly ignored her during my quest for money.

She cleaned me out during the divorce.

Now I wish I was dead.
