30 Wishes

I wish you the all the usuals –
The perfect health, many more years
For more loving moments with your man
A stronger bond with your cool kid
And while we’re at it, I wish for another quirky one to come
I wish for more love in your extended family

I wish that you get to all beautiful places you can’t even imagine
For more walks in the forest and lovely strolls by the beach
For you to try more exquisite cuisines and food trips by the street
I wish that you enjoy the wildest adventures and capture the most stunning pics
For you to revel in the most varied cultures and meet the weirdest of this species
I wish that you get to find some as treasured friends for keeps

I wish you more exciting political discussions
For more debates about even the most mundane things
I wish you more meaningful conversations and reflections deep within
I wish for more creations that come as a result of your brilliant mind
What else could I wish for a stellar human being
But for you to fulfill your grandest dreams

I wish you more head-on collisions and more bended knees
I wish for more seemingly impossible choices and decisions that bring you chills
I wish that these bring to an entirely new place
And remind you of the towering strength you’ve always had within
I wish for a faith that continues to deepen
I wish you joy that constantly wins

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:
ac·ro·pho·bia
\ˌa-krə-ˈfō-bē-ə\
noun
: abnormal dread of being in a high place

According to my mind that was struggling to think of what to do next while my hands and feet were hanging on small protruding rocks on the wall:

stu·pid
\ˈstü-pəd, ˈstyü-\
you

: someone (like you) who is clearly afraid of heights but still does something like wall climbing
: someone (like you) who does crazy things and calls them adventure

According to my heart that continued to pound in my chest unsure if it was fear or exhilaration or both:

ad·ven·ture
\əd-ˈven-chər\
life
: what this life is or should be all about
: something that should not be missed just because of irrational fears
