What would you wish for if you could be granted just one wish to last a lifetime?
I just spent around 20 minutes in a deep day dream, pondering on life and all its struggles. I got to thinking up about genie and his magic lamp lol and thought about what i would wish for if i could get granted one wish. The first thing that popped into my head was to make sure that my children grew up healthy, then i thought no i want them to be grow up and be nice people, and then i changed it again so that i would never have to diet again ha ha. Before coming up with my final designated wish i thought to myself that even without magical wishes im gonna do my best to make sure that my children grow up fine and well and hopefully with as little struggles as possible. I then started to think about how i could best make sure that would happen, and then it came to me. If i could have just one wish now to last me a lifetime i would choose the wish to be able to generate real money whenever i needed too. This could not only help me and the rest of my family until i die but also i could constantly help people in poor countries, help the poor in my own country. I could help loads of people who dont work who are living without the basics, i could buy medicines and help the sick. Maybe even to go as far as getting new houses built for the poor and paying countries to not fight with other countries. I dont believe money is the route to all happiness but if i had a unlimited amount of money i would make sure that a lot of people would be happier and healthier and with less struggles. This would also go a long way to making sure that my children have the life i want for them as well. what would you choose for your one wish? wishes #magic-lamp loudman
I too would wish for money whenever i needed it
I would wish for world peace and no wars
I would wish for my children to grow up healthy
I would wish to have no more health problems
I would wish for no more cruelty
I would wish for noone to ever struggle to get the basics needed in life
I would wish for every charity in the world to get all the donations they would ever need.

Good question. It turns out, I've been granted every single wish I've ever focused on, in my life. Thank you for your entry.

The ability to have money to solve problems would be nice but realistically speaking, I think you would become the target for assassination! Some people make money out of other people's problems and if you supply the means of overcoming those problems they will be out to get you! Yes, it would be nice to have a wish. I used to wish to win the lottery but after 10 years and no win (couple of minor amounts), when they decided to increase the price, I decided to drop out and put the money away, instead. I have now got more than the total I won over the 10 years. of course, it would never reach the total I could get if I won the lottery but with odds of 1 in 15 million EVERY time I play, I reckon I will get more by saving it. So what would I wish for? It's very difficult. You have reminded me of the story, I think, called "The Monkey's Paw", where 3 wishes went terribly wrong. I think I might wish for the ability to complete my education. Thing is, I have the ABILITY but it's the time. And if the wish made me concentrate on my education, my family would miss out on my time and THAT might have a detrimental effect.
Oh dear, I used to love day dreaming about what I could do if I won the lottery and now it appears I don't dream of those things any more - getting old!

I would wish for something otherwise impossible like the ability to go back and forth in time at will. Think big!

It seemed like the choices are way too Beauty pageanty, No selfish choices. I chose the most selfish and less beauty pageanty choice in the poll.

I would wish for a wallet that would never run out of money. I can only imagine what kind of things I could do with it and the folks I could help out along the way.

I think most of us would wish for all of these, or most of them. If cruelty didn't exist, I doubt if crime or war would exist, either. I would wish everyone would be healthy enough to make living doing that they love and that the jobs they love would be there for them.
