If you could have one wish, what would it be? And please, no clichés like wanting world peace and an end to suffering or bringing a loved one back - we all unquestionably want all of them anyway - or making your one wish a wish for more wishes. Just make it something interesting or personal to you, a wish YOU want. Mine would be to be able to be in my 20s again. Not to go back to when I was in my 20s, but to be in them now. I'm 50 now and hate it, so that would be my one wish without question.

My wish would be to give all the kids born with a disability a clean slate so they could have a chance in life. My son has Downs Syndrome and I can't wait for the day that he may be able to have a conversation with me, father to son, I will then die a very happy man.

My wish would be for mum to have the opportunity to have a career, a job she wants not work in the factory shes worked in all her life to be able to give me and my siblings what we wanted... Would be nice that after everything shes done for us in our lives, is use a wish to give her the dream she had x

Infertility.

Since i assume happiness comes under cliches, money. To be absolutely, filthy, disgustingly rich. That way freedom lies. If that's a cliche then an army of subservient men. Maybe they could make me filthy rich. I really like money.

^I concur. I also love money. I'd love to be super ****ing rich.

The power of Invisibility. You could acquire most of the other things you could wish for by being invisible.

to be respected and recognised as an accomplished photographer or to run a successful wedding business without having to take part in the never ending marketing race just to sit alongside everyone else doing the same thing

PeterH, love the invisibility wish. Genius. Imagine the fun you could have Alexkidd, 'or' isn't an option, you have to choose one or the other. Ooh, look at me taking this oh so seriously.

How very true. And don't you just hate that saying, 'Money can't buy you happiness'? And then there're the lottery winners who say it's brought them nothing but misery. Oh really? I don't see them rushing to give it all away and go back to their happily poorer lives of slogging away at work to pay the bills.

Whoever said that money can't buy happiness was either broke and lying to themselves to feel better, or had money but no interests or loving partner to pass the time with. Money can give you the things that you'd enjoy having, it can take you to the places you want to see, it ensures you can make the lives of people you love easier and it alleviates boredom. Money is pretty freaking epic.

I'd be the happiest person in the world if my partner and my family and I were set for life with enough money not to have to count each pound to make sure we don't leave ourselves screwed for the coming week. To know we could buy something to spend time enjoying without worrying about the bank balance dent, or to donate to a charity I'd like to help because I know it's not going to leave me unable to buy bread and milk for the week. That'd make me pretty damn happy. So, I concur with the wish to be filthy rich.

Not quite. Happiness is a state of mind, it can be found not with material distractions but rather with finding yourself. Something that people rarely do these days, the want to spend their life away without looking at what's important themselves and understand what truly makes them tick. Sadly most people only find this when they hit a crisis.

This is called many things, a religious revelation, finding your centre, inner peace and so on. Once you found that then you realise how fleeting material wealth is.

Very true.

If I was to draw up a list of the most important things, the top of the list would read:-

1. Love
2. Health
3. Money

Money can certainly get you a long way in life but since it can't cure a terminal illness or fulfil your need to be loved then it has to come 3rd in my view.  My wish therefore would be to find true love - something that very few ever achieve (or, perhaps, have the ability to comprehend). I also appreciate that if I suffered severe health issues then 1 and 2 might be reversed.
