YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT

Years ago the Rollin Stones had a song titled the same as this entry. They did however go on to say that "If you try sometimes you just might find you get what you need."  How very true this lyric is. Many times in my personal life I have pictured something in my mind that I thought I needed to be happy. But quite often the thing I desired never did come to fruition. And at times it was  a little disheartening that my desires never came about. But amazingly after I waited for things to clear up I found that I really did not need the thing I wanted at all. Life in Its infinite wisdom knew what I really needed better than I did! So over the years I have learned that when things do not go as I wanted I am still able to take a lesson from the entire episode. And that always makes me feel like I have become a better person by not receiving what I wanted  but rather I got what I really needed. Life can seem hard and even cruel at times but I firmly believe that all things happen for a reason. I am living proof that you can't always get what you want but I am learning to accept that I am always getting what I need. It sure ain't easy sometimes but it always is a blessing. So if things do not turn out the way you would like them to try not to be too discouraged. Instead look for the lessons and accept that Life knows you better than you know yourself sometimes.  But my hope for all of you is that all your dreams come true without too many "hard" lessons. Remember to keep smiling through the rain laughing at the pain til the sun comes out again. (Thank you Wet Willie) Let your light shine brightly and try to do a little something nice for someone today!

Namaste brother Ron, so very true.I think a good deal of the time we only think we know what we need. The mind thinks one thing yet the heart knows another. Enjoyed your post brother, hope all is well in your world.

Thanks Christopher for the visit. I'm doing good here. Starting over at this point in my life is giving me more important lessons about who I am and what it is I still need to work on. Tough lessons for sure now that I am by myself once again but I know those lessons will only help me to grow in spirit. Sure hope you are doing really great too. Hope to talk with you soon my friend.
