I Can't Always Get What I Want

There are so many wonderful things that I want in my life. Things that I want to accomplish. Things that I want to experience. Things that I want to have. For the most part, I can get all these things if I make it a point to get them. Determination is key.

However, every once in a while, life throws in a wrench and screws it all up. What do I do then? Do I give up? Do I hold on to that sliver of hope that I will get it? Instead of hoping, do I just continue to go after it? I'm not sure what the right answer is.

All I know, is that I just have to be. Be in the moment. I've always believed that things happen in life for a reason. Things or people or whatever are placed in our lives at the precise moment we need them. It is not up to us to figure out why and question it. At least I think so, not right at the beginning. I just have to go with the flow and continue as I am. The answer will eventually come to me.

But for now, I will just Be. I will be comforted in the fact that I am here, in the moment. I will treasure and hold on to every precious moment in my life right now. After all, memories are part of who we are.

Just Be!


  1. I've always found that in those moments that we stand still and do nothing, many revelations come to us. Clearing your mind, makes the resolution clearer or something just happens to make it all work out!
    But I like it the way you said it... Just Be! Good stuff Dianne!

  2. Good outlook. Keeping an open mind can be challenging, especially when we think we know what's right, best for us or another - including those close to us. I wish you well on your path.
