A lot of people say they wish for a big, beautiful, or lucky birthday.
That’s not always a good thing, however.
There’s a chance they might not be able to accomplish that.
“Birthday wishes are pretty subjective,” says Amy Wojtowicz, co-founder and chief content officer at the digital agency, which includes The Huffington Post, the Huffington Post Studios, and more.
“If you wish for something like the Statue of Liberty to come down, you might not get it.”
If you wish to have a baby, you’ll probably be able, though not necessarily be able.
“We’ve seen some pretty incredible things come about for our users, and a lot of the time we wish for things we can’t really get to,” Wojkowicz says.
“The ones that work are ones where we can have people be able [to make a wish] but we don’t really know that they’ll actually be able or will even be able.”
Here’s how to make your wishes come true.
If you want to be able and you want the most of your birthday, you need to be very clear about what you want.
When it comes to wish-making, you want something that will make you happy, Wojtkowicz says, not something that just makes you happy.
That means that you can’t just say “I wish that everyone gets a beautiful birthday” and then have it happen.
Instead, you should have an open and honest conversation with yourself about what that wish is and what it means for you.
“It’s important that you ask yourself, ‘What do I want my wish to mean?’
What is it about my birthday that I want to see happen, and how does that impact my life?” says Wojtiakowksi.
“I think it’s important to make sure that the wish that you make is not just a wish that someone else wants you to have.”
She also recommends that you have a plan in place before you make your wish.
“Make sure that you know what you’re trying to get from it,” she says.
For example, if you’re hoping to have your husband make a big birthday wish, you’d want to know where that wish will come from, what it will mean for him, and what other people are going to want to say about it.
You also want to make a plan for what you’ll be doing in the days and weeks after you make the wish.
For Wojwakowsi, this means having a list of things you’ll do after your wish is made, what your next steps are, and when your wishes will actually come true, she says: “If I make a birthday wish for myself, I’ll know what my birthday wishes are going on for the next few weeks.”
Make it happen The most important thing to remember is that you don’t have to do everything yourself, says Wozniakowski.
“Your best bet is to get a trusted friend, a partner, or a trusted professional to help you get the wishes made.”
“Make it happen” is a great motto for Wojteksi and Wojta, too.
“People ask us all the time, ‘Can you make a life wish?’,” Woznykowski says.
Woznia is happy to oblige, and says that she’s happy to do anything.
“But if I can’t, then I’ll be happy to make the best of it and make something else happen,” she adds.
She has her own list of wishes she can make, and she’s been able to make them for some of her most famous clients, too: actress Ellen Burstyn, singer-songwriter Justin Bieber, and rapper Kanye West.
“Making the best out of the situation is a really good way to build trust,” Woshtowicz says of her work.
“Once you have that, the next step is, ‘How can I make the wishes come to life?'”
That’s what’s happened to Wojtekowski, who has been able see her wish-makers succeed with more than a few people.
Wojakowski has been very open about her wishmaking and her intentions.
In fact, she’s even talked about making some of them her own.
“So far, we’ve seen a lot come to fruition,” she told HuffPost Live in October.
“You’ve probably seen them on Instagram, and we’ve also seen a bunch of people who we haven’t met before making them their own.”
But you can also get your wishes made by your friends and family.
“Be sure to ask a trusted person to make it happen, because that’s a good way for them to help make the dream come true,” she recommends.
“When it comes down to it, it’s about what the person wants to do and what they want to experience with their life.”
Wojlowski also recommends making your wishes public so others can see them and be inspired. You don’t
