You Don’t Always Get What You Want

October 18, 2011

But you always get what you need. And it is usually better.

How many of us bemoan our fate when we do not get exactly what we were hoping for? We often like to play the underdog and say, “oh whoa is me, why didn’t I get that new job or why did that girl/guy leave me or why didn’t ‘x’ work out the way I wanted it to?”

You can ask yourself these questions over and over again. Unfortunately, it will not change the reality of the situation for you. What we fail to realize in life is that we are never alone. We are always guided by a divine force that is acting on behalf of our highest good at all times. Nothing that is right for you will ever be taken away (unless the timing is not quite right for it to materialize).

The universe is a complex orchestration of destiny at play. What we think is right for us, seldom is. In truth, we never really know what is right for us until years later when we look back and say, “oh, thank God, that job was taken away from me. I would have never left it on my own and I would have never gone back to school and become who I am today…” Anything that happens in your life is a blessing – it is a God’s way of moving you along your projected path. Things may not always work out the way you would like them to, but they work out the way they are supposed to. In my personal and professional experience with clients, I have seen this to be true – you may not always get what you want in life, but you always get what you need (whether or not you know you need it at the time). And in my experience, it is always better than what you thought you wanted. Life is funny that way.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
