[Desk Column] Have You Thought about Granting Wishes to Other People?
제 142 호    발행일 : 2013.09.02 


  ‘Do you grant wishes to other people?’ Only some people will be able to say ‘yes’ to this question. We all have many wishes and make these wishes. There are many ways to make a wish such as wishing on a star or blowing out a candle. However, we don’t think that we can grant other people’s wishes. Incidentally, I had a special experience to grant another person’s wish during the summer vacation. Because of this, I could feel the value of granting a wish.
  I participated in a volunteer activity of the ‘Make A Wish’ foundation that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. I met a child through this activity. The child made a wish to have a princess room. Thus, I decorated the princess room with my team members for 1 month. We purchased necessary goods and planned events for the child. We could see her smile and feel the pleasure of granting a wish.
  Making a wish is very easy. Put your hands together and close your eyes; make a wish in spirit. Then, that is the end of making a wish. However, granting a wish is more complicated. We also made a lot of preparations for the child’s wish. We had to choose the kind of furniture for decorating the room that fit our budget and the size of child’s room. In addition, we had to allow for shipping dates. We couldn’t neglect a single item for the child. Other than the goods, we had to map out various events. While we prepared the child’s wish, we experienced setbacks. However, the child was delighted as we went through the trouble and we also felt like we were doing something meaningful.
  Granting a wish is pretty awkward for those of us who are accustomed only to making wishes. Moreover, some people might think, “Do I need to grant the wish of another person?” We think our own wishes are the most important. However, why don’t you take an interest in the wishes of other people? Wishes don’t come true by themselves. To grant a wish, we should help other people. If you pay attention to another person’s wish first, they also will be able help you. In addition, granting a wish is a very rewarding job. I want you to be able to feel that feeling.
