Do you participate in chain letter or other direct solicitation wishes? Who can receive a wish? Does a child's condition have to be terminal to qualify for a wish?.

How many times during a given day do you start a thought with “I wish…”? It is so easy to do.

I wish I had enough money to buy a home.

I wish I had a better job.

I wish I had the money to go to explore the greatest wonders of the world.

I wish I could buy the LA Dodgers. (Who wouldn’t want to buy a baseball team?)

I wish I was married.

I wish he/she was my spouse.

I wish I had that opportunity.

I wish I was in first class. (I really do wish this; I barely have room to type!)

I wish….

As a good friend used to tell me when I was many years younger, “Don’t wish your life away.”

Excellent advice.

It is so easy to get caught up in the moment of thinking our life would be so much better if only we had something or someone else. We wish for it all to be easier, better, bigger.

The problem, usually, is that we just wish… no real action, just wishful thoughts, leading to wasted energy, twisted frustration, and frayed energy.

Wishing is really like a birthday cake wish. We see it all decorated so nicely. Thick, sweet icing swirled all around, and there are brightly lit candles making it glimmer with hope and desire. It is begging us, drawing us in to think hard about the biggest wish we could ever possibly receive. We then blow the candles out, and the wish disappears with the rising smoke. The party is over; the wish seemingly forgotten, ignored.

Life’s wishes usually enter a similar fate – an unused spur of inspiration. We move drudgingly through what our “normal” life is. Our worthwhile wishes lie spent, lifeless.

Wishing is disheartening.

Wishing is materialistic or self-centered (usually).

Wishing is a lazy way through life.

Rather than wishing, we need to engage our spirit, identify our abilities, do worthwhile things, and don’t ever stop.

Engage our spirit

An elegant phrase that may ring hollow… Engage our spirit. The reality: it is digging into our inner self and quieting our distractions to really hear what our purpose or calling is. It does not need to replace our work life necessarily, although it should definitely supplement it.

What inspires us? What will inspire others? What will really make a difference?

Will those new dinner plates matter in the end? Will that nip or tuck really matter in the end? Will the new Maserati race us to a purposeful end?

It is too bad that old adages become tired and meaningless, because it is true that when lying on our deathbed, I doubt we will say I wish I had purchased that Rolex watch two years ago.

Focus on what the voice inside is really trying to grab your attention with. Listen for it. Engage it.

Identify our abilities

We all have gifts. It may be whizzing through mathematical formulas. It may be designing wonderful things. It may be writing – beautifully, inspiringly. It may be delivering speeches that bring people to their feet and sharpen their spirits.

We have a mind. Think about our abilities.

We have feelings. Tap into what warms our heart.

We have skills and knowledge. Pinpoint what we really enjoy.

Make a list. If you meditate, center your thoughts. If you pray, seek guidance. If you visualize, imagine your life movie. Do your thing to grasp your abilities that light your spirit up!

Spend the time. Identify your inspiring abilities.

Do worthwhile things

Whatever those gifts, use them fully. Put them into action – in your workplace, in your extracurricular space. Make good use of your abilities; make lives better.

Develop the plan on how to match your engaged spirit with your identified abilities.

Enliven the plan by doing it, living it. Now.

Don’t ever stop

Roadblocks will happen. Deal with them.

Some people will get in the way. Go around them.

Time will pass quickly. Carve out the time to do the worthwhile things.

You will grow old. Keep doing.

There will be distractions. Stay focused.

In the end, you will not utter the word “wish” at all. Your engaged life will be the gift, and all – including yourself – will say “thank you.”


How many times during a given day do you start a thought with “I wish ”? It is so easy to do. I wish I had enough money to buy a home. I wish I.

What Task Do You Wish You Could Give Up to a Robot?

how do you wish

Do you need to make changes to products that you've already uploaded to Wish? Using the Edit Products tool, you can edit your product's attributes such as price, shipping, quantity, and more.

What's an attribute? An attribute is:





Shipping Time



Main Image URL


Localized Price
Localized Shipping

You can also use this feed to:



First, create a simple .csv product feed file. You must include the Unique Id (or SKU) for each item you wish to update. This goes in the Unique Id column. This column is required. Then, add columns for the attributes you need to edit. You can include as many columns as you need, depending on the Unique Ids what you want to update.

Updating One Attribute

For the sake of example, let's say you want to update the inventory quantity for multiple items. Your feed will be set up like this:

Once the feed is created and saved as a .csv, go to Products > Update Existing Products > Product CSV File. This page provides helpful information about uploading. Under Feed Specification, you can click on any attribute for more information.

When you're ready to upload your feed file, scroll down to Upload Your Feed File.

Select your file and click Submit. You can update any attribute exactly this same way. Just switch out the "Quantity" column for a column with another one of the Optional Attributes as the title of the second column (make sure to always include the Unique Id column!) and input the relevant information.

Updating Multiple Attributes at Once

What if you want to edit inventory for some products, but you also need to change the shipping cost and price for some? You can do it all at once. Start with the required Unique ID column and then go on to add as many attributes (columns) as you need.

After you're finished creating the feed, go to Products > Update Existing Products > Product CSV File, select your file, and click Submit. That's it!

THE Hindu festival Diwali is being commemorated today, and it's sure to be another beautiful celebration.

The annual celebration is filled with beautiful lights and colours, but what do you say to someone when you want to wish them a Happy Diwali?

What is Diwali?

Diwali is a festival, associated with Hinduism and it lasts five days.

It takes place between October and November every year in the northern hemisphere.

And in the southern hemisphere it takes place in Spring.

It takes place on the day before the new moon in the month of Ashwin, which is the seventh month of the lunisolar Hindu calendar.

The festival's purpose is to celebrate Rama-chandra, who is the seventh incarnation of the god Vishnu.

The celebrations began on Monday November 5 with Dhanteras.

November 6 is Choti Diwali, Naraka Chaturdasi which is a day of preparing feast and sweet treats.

November 7 is when feasts are shared, temples are visited and family are greeted.

Annakut, Padwa and Govardhan Puja is on day four, and this celebrates the bond between husband and wife.

And on November 9, the final celebration is called Thai Dui, Bhaiya Dooj, which celebrates the bond between siblings.

What are some Diwali greetings to share?

It can be as simple as saying 'Happy Diwali', but there are a few other longer greetings you can say if you wish to.

  • "It’s Diwali everywhere, happiness is in the air and wealth forever… And wish everyone out there Happy Diwali!"
  • "Let this Diwali burn all your bad times and enter you in good times."
  • "Since this is a special occasion when all the family and friends get together, for fun. Wishing a lot of amusement to cheer your days during this festive season. Happy Diwali!"

  • "Diwali is a festival full of sweet memories, a sky full of fireworks, a mouth full of sweets, a house full of diyas and a heart full of enjoyment! Happy Diwali!"
