It’s 11:11 on 11/11/11. Starting when I was a kid, my sister and I used to feverishly believe in making wishes when the clock was full of 1′s. We would should “11:11!” at the top of our lungs whenever we saw it, so wherever the other one of us was, we wouldn’t miss our chance for a wish. Even now, I find myself silently wishing, usually for the same few things, over and over, whenever this time occurs.
Do you think there’s something special about 11:11? Have you made an epic wish yet today?
Today is 11/11, and you know what that means…
MAKE A WISH!
I still remember the first time my little sister told me about this magical moment. We were in elementary school and I couldn’t believe I had gone so long without knowing about this phenomenon. Ever since then, I have kept an eye out for the moment when the clock flashed all ones. When I was sick, most of my wishes were about getting better and keeping all my fellow cancer patients safe. And since that worked, I’ve moved on to other wishes over the years, many of which have come true.
So, don’t waste this moment and this day – wish away!
(And save the date for next year, which multiple people on Facebook have informed me is the time of “the most epic wish ever” as it will be 11/11/11.)
