So, I was going to write a long meaningful post tonight, but I think my mind has a different idea...sleep. When I see a fruit cup out of the corner of my eye and think it's a huge spider-it's definitely time to go to bed!
Here's the short version:
Lately I've been trying to get myself accustom to the idea that "we" can't always get exactly what we want in life. This is a pretty hard concept for me to wrap my brain around.
I not spoiled. And I haven't been given everything I've asked for or anything. It's just that my parents raised me with the attitude...if you want something than get it, work for it, it's possible. It's doable.
In fact, I've amazed people my whole life by getting stuff done that they didn't think was going to happen. It's a great philosophy...I love it. For the most part, it keeps me positive and ready for the next challenge in life.
However, what I'm learning is that, the philosophy has some flaws that there are really no way around. You can be chugging along...set path, set goal, going after what you want, doing what you want, and then life happens. People and/or circumstances get in the way. Then...it's up to you to make adjustments to your plan. Do you get what you want? Or even what you thought you wanted? Maybe some version of it, or maybe not. Depends on the circumstances in general and how you proceed.
I know I'm rambling, but this subject is hard for me. I wish sometimes that there was a clear cut instruction manual for life. You go through steps 1,2,3 and boom there you go end result A.
Does this make sense? Any thoughts?
