I wish...

I didn't like sweets and all things fattening so much
I didn't bite my cuticles
I were more even-tempered
I had more self-control
Our lawn was filled in
I didn't need so much sleep
I could afford to buy people things they would like
Teachers weren't so poorly compensated
There were more hours in the day
Cookies made you thin
I didn't take blurry pictures
My parents lived nearby
I had a personal chef
I were naturally thin
I helped people more
I enjoyed vegetables more than junk
All of my family lived nearby
I enjoyed exercise more
I didn't dread talking to my brother
Pregnancy didn't make you fat
It would never get above 75 degrees
Bella would always be so sweet
I didn't like to sleep so much
All of you would tell me what you wish...

I wish that I wasn't so impatient so that I could just enjoy things how they are instead of waiting for the next phase.
I wish that I could maintain a steady level of spirituality in my daily life, instead of constantly fluctuating.
I wish that I could have more motivation to be active.
I wish I could feel productive all the time.
I wish I liked to eat healthy.

I wish:
I could be a mom/wife 100% of the time instead of the working girl I am
my day had more hours
I had more time to follow my passions
Linc was done with school
my sister lived in Utah
thinking thin would really work
sleeping 5-6 hours a night would leave me refreshed and feeling great in the morning
I had natural/built-in sunblock
I could afford a maid
I could repay the kindness my family has shown me time and time again
I could rewind life and do a few things differently

I wish that I always had money for all the clothes I wish I had.
I wish that I had a pair of plaid shorts.
I wish that I could solve every problem of mine and of the people I love.
I wish that the people I love never had to get hurt.
I wish that I wouldn't procrastinate so much.
I wish that I lived close to all of my family.
I wish that I a shiny, grand piano.
I wish that my legs weren't as blindingly white as they are.

I run a website of baby diaper cakes and I'm have a hell of a time getting untracked. I can get traffic to the site but I'm not making many sales. What is the best advice you can give for a site like mine. I would love any help I can get! Don - baby diaper cakes
