Make A Wish by Xanthe Elliott

birthday-candles greyscale

Xanthe Elliott is the alter-ego of a mild-mannered Maryland accountant. After counting beans by day, she seeks the meaning of life in the written word. While she pretends that she intends to write serious works of self-reflection, in reality she believes there is enough “real life” in the world. Accordingly you will usually find her chasing magic and happily ever after. Her work is featured in 16 Single Sentence Stories, online at 101Fiction, Poppy Road Review, Life As An [insert label here], and Rose Red Review, and is forthcoming at Four and Twenty.

  1. You don’t make things happen by wishing. You make things happen by deciding that they are going to happen. Then you leave it up to the Universe to figure out the fine detail. As I tell my Reiki students – your intent is all. Decide what you intend to achieve and the rest is jam, or jelly, depending on which side of the pond you are.

    • Mrs. Finnegan and I agree! I’ve no doubt that her decisiveness made all the difference 🙂 To date I haven’t tried Reiki, but I love acupuncture; achieving balance is a boon to creativity! Thank you for reading and commenting.
