It’s 11.11.11. and I am writing this in the sky, where wishes come true. Thinking about wishes while being surrounded by clouds forces the mind to stretch, because, when you find yourself between somewhere and nowhere, your understanding of the vastness of your potential dreams becomes a tangible reality.
Today is the wishbone of all wishbones: a day to really sit back and think about what exactly it is you are wishing for in life. It’s no secret that anyone with a concrete direction – or wish – for themselves is more likely to achieve their dreams, so what concrete thing are you longing for to shape you? If you’re not sure, then today is the perfect day to start figuring it out, allowing your heart and mind to stretch beyond the boundaries of what is safe and comfortable.
As I fly over the snowy, craggy peaks of the Swiss Alps, I have a view that surpasses any film footage I have ever seen and anything my imagination could have conspired. I have been to the Alps before, in both Switzerland and this summer when I biked them during Ironman France, but memories never prepare you for the real, first-hand experience, just like hopes never properly prepare us for the fulfillment of our wishes.
May your hopes be poignant enough that you would be bold in your wishes so that in turn, your wishes and dreams collide as reality. Happy 11.11.11. Be confident in what you wish for today and be confident as you purposefully pursue your own version of 11.11.11.
