Happy Sunday Friends! Here’s a little slice of perspective for you.
Have you ever hoped and planned for something, only to have it cancelled? Or applied for a job, visualized how awesome your life will be with that job, and then not get a second interview? What about finding yourself jealous of someone’s job as a manager of anything with a significant other and thought “why can’t I have that?”
Because you’re not supposed to have it! At least not at this time in this way. Things aren’t always going to be perfect. There will be set backs. And that’s the way it is supposed to be. We have to learn from what doesn’t go the way we hoped, and figure out if its something worth really fighting for, or if we need to find something else that is better for us.
I can think of a few things over the last couple years that I’ve wanted and didn’t get. And at the time, I was ticked. I wanted something, I didn’t understand why I didn’t “deserve” it. But in reality, it wasn’t meant to be. Other things are out there that are better for me.
Is there something you didn’t get that you want? A point when you thought you were lost only to realize you were on a better path?
