“You can’t always get what you want…..but if you try sometime you just might find, you get what you need.”
This is a classic. It’s a great song. And it’s true. Life is funny, isn’t it?
I look around and see:
~my family ~my house ~my life
~the people who made it through to the other side with us
~and those that didn’t
~my closest friends, all parent of a daughter when I’m not and I shake my head at the irony
~the distance that exists between me and my siblings- and how it’s growing
~an old friend with whom I’ve been to hell and back- and know if I call today, he will be there no questions asked
~the endless possibilities for the future.
I look around and see all these things. This might not be the life I thought I would have but somehow I have to believe that this is the life I was supposed to live. It’s what I need. For whatever reason. It’s up to me to decide what I do with this life.
