I learned about the 3 wishes in a bra from Lori Wilde, who calls it Boob Wishes. If you have the National CDs from Atlanta, a great workshop is Guerilla Tactics to Reinventing Yourself by writers Lori Wilde and Charlotte Maclay and Warner editor Karen Kosztolnyik. (track 27, disc 3)
We believe in thinking positive at Magical Musings, and Lori touched on spiritual and positive tactics, while Charlotte talked about practical and funny strategies. Actually, they both crossed over to each other’s side, but a lot of what Lori said resonated with where I am right now. And then there’s her boob wishes…
But I’m going to make you wait for that.:twisted: First, some other things Lori said. When she was orphaned from a Silhouette line, she went 2 ½ years without a sale. Every night when she went to bed, she told herself it was “one day closer to the next sale.” I did that last night, although without the “next” in mine. I know I fell asleep with a smile. Positive self-talk is so important.
During this time, Lori also meditated every day and read books on positive thinking . One of the exercises she picked up from WRITE IT DOWN, MAKE IT HAPPEN by Henriette Anne Klauser was to write down 3 things she believed could really happen in the next 30 days. She shared this with a loop of about 30 writers. The book said to put the paper in her pocket, but this was inconvenient for one of the members, who put hers in her bra. They started calling it the Boob Wishes.
I love this! These are the wishes of your heart, and you’re keeping them close to your heart. Lori says it’s surprising how often someone on the loop gets their Boob Wish that month.
I’m not surprised. I’ve got 3 Boob Wishes in the left side of my bra right now, and I’ll do this every day for a month.
Is this all woo-woo to you? Do you believe positive thinking makes a difference? My last question: Who wants to join me in a month of Boob Wishes? (Remember, it has to be things that are really possible, so it’s probably not wise to include George Clooney and a Las Vegas chapel in your list.)
Next month, on November 12th, a Sunday, I’ll ask who got their Boob Wishes. 😎
