Inspired by (ripped from?) a song by Fort Atlantic, "Let your heart hold fast" - from How I Met Your Mother. Love the lyrics, so naturally they're all I can think of when I see the title "Hold Fast."
Wishes and wishing are usually seen in a positive light. Very inspirational. Hopeful. Like dreaming.
But ... they're also passive. Wishing takes away all control and responsibility. It's a little bit like believing in magic. Cinderella was a dreamer and a wisher, but she could have walked away from her evil stepmother at any time. Maybe even have met her prince without the help of a fairy godmother. Who knows?
Wishing perpetuates unhappiness, I think. You can't possibly be happy with what you have, where you are, or who you are with, if you're wishing for something else. What if you didn't wish for anything and were just happy with here and now?
