Today when I pulled my guidance card it stated that I should focus on what I desire. Hmm, there’s a good question. It brought me to think about the differences between wish, want, and desire. All three have similar definitions according to dictionary.com.
To wish for something is to want. To want something is to desire for it. To desire something is to wish.
Isn’t that clarity for you?
But the second definitions show something a bit different.
To wish for something is to request. To want something is to require. To desire something is to long for something that brings satisfaction (a sexual urge).
Using these definitions,
- I wish for a good sandwich for lunch.
- I want a good house for us to preserve my relationship with my parents.
- I desire a partner who desires me.
Goal of the Day: Thomas wants water shoes for camp.
Rant of the Day: I wish Adam would call when he says he will.
Thankful moment: I want to thank my realtor who is looking out for my wishes.
Guiding Card: Focus on your desires and they will be delivered. (I wonder if he will show up in bubble wrap?)
