Okay, since I've noticed we're getting big on the lists here, I should probably talk a little bit about something amazing called, "The Magic List" phenomenon.
Click here to see what I'm talking about.
Have you ever written a list of everything you wanted in a mate, a car, a house, or a job? Did it ever mysteriously come true? The theory in the article above is that it will. And I can attest to that.
In 2000, a friend and I decided to come up with a list of everything SHE wanted in a guy one night after some douchebag frat boy decided to completely blow her off. Right then we make a 6 page list entitled "The Perfect Guy" featuring everything from "has to be good looking" to "doesn't freeze cookies" (don't ask). This list was ridiculous, self-centered and well beyond far fetched. After we printed it out, we hung it on her wall in her dorm room near the foot of her bed. Everyone who stopped in to visit got a good chuckle out of it...that is, until something crazy happened...
No more than two months later, her brother's hunky best friend (of whom she'd had a crush on for 5 years) sends her a 21st birthday card completely out of the blue with a request to take her out sometime . This guy somehow managed to meet every single one of her Magic List criteria and they are now happily married (5 years and counting!)
The above article suggests making lists for all types of things. It also suggests that there are eerie ways in which these lists have a tendency to come true.
So.... what is it that YOU want? I suggest that whatever it is - make a list for it. The only risk you take is wasting too much paper - and trust me, that's not much to lose when there's a chance of getting everything you've ever dreamed of!
