Have you ever been reminded of something good that you didn't even know you'd forgotten about? That happened to me last week when I attended a performance where the choir sang "When You Wish Upon a Star." I hadn't heard or thought about it in years, but as soon as I heard those first three notes, I went, "Oh yeah, I love this song!"
Don't get me wrong. I've been around long enough to know that simply "wishing on a star" ain't enough to make stuff happen. Dreams take work. Like any compelling protagonist, we have to take an active role - become the hero of our own story, if you will. But sometimes, after you've done everything you can do, you have to trust the Universe to meet you halfway. That's where the wishing comes in.
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true.
