    I must totally agree!

    If you want to weigh 120 pounds, but you weigh 200 at the present, you are NOT going to lose weight by being a couch potato and eating shit all day. Not going to happen unless you get a tapeworm or something, no matter how much you wish for it.

    Believe me, I should know.

  • For most things, yes. But I also believe you have to work for it to make it happen. You can't just sit around hoping && waiting for things to fall in your lap. If you want something bad enough, you can make it happen with hard work && determination.

  • yes. i wanted to graduate college in 4 years (which at at my school w/ my major is rare) even though i switched majors 3 times. so i sucked it up & took 20 credits (6 classes) every semester for 2 years just to graduate on time. i wanted it badly but had to work my butt off for it.

    but also no. i want nice smooth acne-free skin. i have tried everything & spent money on countless products & prescriptions. nothing's ever worked for more than a few months. its just something i have to deal with.

    so i think you can work really hard to get just about anything you want, but some things we just have to accept as being unchangeable.

  • Generally yes... But you have to be practical about your wishes too though. If you want to be a queen, I don't think it really matters how hard you wish or how much you truely believe it can happen, if you are a poor girl from the valley, you are never gonna be a queen...

  • Yes it can ...
    wow I cant believe you said that Sabrina... about the poor girl never becoming queen...
    because it can happen.especially in God's kingdom!

  • if it's in line with the word of God. The Bible Says He will give you the desires of your heart.

  • I agree with Sabrina.
    But also, sometimes it is possilbe to trick yourself into thinking you got what you wanted when you really didnt.
    My sister did this. Her and DH were TTC. My sister REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted a baby. Well, eventually she started having symptoms. Missed period. Sore breasts. Morning sickness. ect ect. ...As soon as she took a pregnancy test (okay ...more like 5 and then a blood test) the symptoms went away. huh. go figure.
    (she did eventually get pregnant. The misscarried. and got pregnant again a few months later. I know have a very beautiful 6yr old nice)
