You Can’t Always Get What You Want

“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.

  1. Honestly… at times getting everything on a platter is boring. I would want to work for it, make it interesting and make it worth the wait! Often the struggles we face makes me wonder if our desires are worth it.
