When it comes to generating ideas for posts, a lot of times I just pull something out of thin air. Usually it will be related to something that I’ve experienced in my recent days or something I’ve wondered about, but most of the time, ideas just hit me for no clear reason and I run with them.
This particular post was brought to you all by the universe. Yes, that’s right. The universe. You see, for the last week, I have been inundated with the same topic time and time again. Badgered over the head, if you will. In no less than three different ways has this issue been made the focus of my life at separate times. Clearly, I am meant to write about it. However, as I sit here, I feel like I cannot truly do the topic justice because I feel that the message is clear enough and why should I further elaborate on an already defined subject.
But I will because, let’s face it, this is what I do here.
What is this mysterious topic that I write about so enigmatically? Asking for what you want.
Who could forget Meredith’s speech on “Grey’s Anatomy” where she begged Derek to choose her over his estranged wife?
Simple enough, right? You see something you desire, you ask for it. A raise, a dance, a shiny new pair of shoes. Children do it all the time. “Mommy, I want ice cream!” “Daddy, I want a teddy bear!” “Auntie, pick me up!” But is it really that simple?
