I wish I wrote the following below. However, I’m guessing Mark Schwahn, creator of One Tree Hill, or one of the other writers on staff wrote them. These were the voice overs of the last two episodes and the writing moved me enough to pause my recording, rewind and copy it for you good people here.
Make A Wish
Make a wish and place it in your heart
Anything you want. Everything you want.
Do you have it? Good.
Now believe it could come true.
You never know where the next miracle will come from…the next smile… the next wish come true.
But if you believe it’s right around the corner and you open your heart and mind to the possibility of it. To the certainty of it. You just might get the thing you’re wishing for.
The world is full of magic. You just have to believe in it.
So make your wish.
Do you have it? Good.
Now believe in it with all your heart.
It’s been said the saddest thing a man will ever face is what might have been.
But what of the man who’s faced with what was?
Or what may never be…
Or what can no longer be…
Choosing the right path is never easy. It’s a decision we make with only our hearts to guide us.
But sometimes we find our way to something better.
Sometimes we fight through the regret and remorse of our mistakes, our malice and our jealousy and the shame we feel for not being the people we are meant to be.
And that’s when we find our wat to something better.
Or when something better finds its way to us.
They touched me because I connected with the central messages of both. The first is about making your dreams come true and the second is about not worrying too much about the choices we make in life.
Right now, in my life, I want to make my dreams come true, but I’m worrying too much about the choices I’ve made. I chose to be two and a half hours away from the girl I love. I frustrate her because, if all things were equal, we would be together. We should be one of the happy couples we keep seeing criss-cross our path. We can’t seem to find the way to make “us” work.
Our chemistry together is explosive. I told her I don’t have fantasies about her… I have reenactments. She makes lists of who she wants in a partner and I feel I’m the only one who fits the bill.
I have my wish, but I don’t know if it’s the right path.
