“You Can’t Always Get What You Want”

“You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need.” Mick Jagger and Keith Richards

I don’t always get what I want, do you? So how do you react to that?

I get a bit frustrated but then I switch my perspective. I tell myself “maybe what you want isn’t what you need.”

Sometimes a Higher Power knows better for us. 

And it’s true. Some of the things I’ve wanted in my life didn’t happen and as time passed I realized that they didn’t happen for good reason: it wasn’t in my best interest or something not so good would have come out of it.

We all get disappointed when we don’t get what we want, but if you really look at your life you’ll see that you get what you need.

What is it that you want that you aren’t getting?

Are you loved? Are there people in your life that care about you? Is someone there to help you through your difficult times and celebrate your good times? Have you woken up to another day that you were never promised?

Those are gifts and guess what? It’s all that you need.

Life may not always give you what you want, but it will always provide you with what you need.

And if it’s meant to be, it will give you what you want.

I have to believe that. 

Be grateful for it all.

Wishing you love and light,
