I wanna share it with the world!

Today was a good day.   Busy, but good.  I wish I had time before now to get to wishcasting Wednesday, but I still have a few hours to get my wishes in.

Today Jamie asks:

I've always been told that I have a great smile and that it puts people in a good mood. Even on my worst days, I tend provides others a smile - good ripples - because I truly believe that how I treat one person can affect a bunch of people who I might not even have contact with and so on and so on.  While I'm hardly a saint and get rightly-and-not-rightly annoyed with people at times, I always try to leave them with a smile.

I must confess, though, that all of that good will and smiling flies out the window when I drive.  I'm the angry Jersey girl behind the wheel, cursing old people, tailgaters and anyone who doesn't know how to merge.  Such wasted energy.  In most cases, the cause of my ire probably didn't even know it and in if the driver did, what did I accomplish?  Not only was I letting someone else steal my joy on preposterous grounds, but there was a chance I was then putting them into a mood that could affect whoever they came into contact with.

Karma.

I don't want bad ripples, just good ripples.

My wish this week, as silly as it might seem, is just to be able to continue to smile and be joyful.  To find some calm when I'm driving that has escaped me in the past.

(I probably won't get to each person's individual wishes until tomorrow, so for tonight know, my lovely wishcasters, that as you wish for yourselves, so I truly, truly wish for you also!)

There is something special about Jersey especially the shore. No matter how long I have been gone it is still home.
You are so lucky you have a great smile. It can easily change how you and others feel and view the world. As Mare wishes, I wish for her as well.

Great wish. Keep smiling it is sometimes the only way to go.

As Mare wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

What a truly delightful wish. I too get less kind, sweet and lovely behind the wheel and for no good reason or outcome. As you wish for yourself, I wholeheartedly wish for you also. xx
