“You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you might find what you need.”
~The Rolling Stones~
I’ve heard this quote so many times and yet I can’t get enough of it because it is so true. There are many times in life that we search for what we want and think what we need isn’t what we would want. And when we want something we have to have it right now, no later. But if we would take a step back and look at the big picture we would realize that sometimes what we need is more than what we could ever want, but we also have t be willing to wait for it.
“Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.”
Trust is so important in life. Trust in others and trust in yourself. If you don’t have trust in yourself you will never think you are capable to do anything, and you could miss out on the experiences that life has in store for you. I’ll admit, trust can be scary. But without it you’ll never allow yourself to get close to anything or anyone.
“I would rather be able to appreciate things I can not have than to have things I am not able to appreciate.”
One of the worst feelings is realizing that you have taken something, or someone you had, for granted. Knowing you didn’t show them the love and appreciation that they deserved. So I say to you guys, realize that what you have and don’t let it go.
“Let nothing disturb thee; Let nothing dismay thee; All things pass; God never changes. Patience attains all that it strives for. He who has God finds he lacks nothing: God alone suffices.”
~St. Teresa of Avila~
“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”
There are countless amounts of people who go out in the world searching for things that will make them happy. But stop searching, happiness is all around you. Recognize the happiness you can have when you appreciate the life you are given and with the people who love you.
“All of life is a journey which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. We determine our destination. What kind of road we will take to get there, and how happy we are when we get there.”
