witty! an open mind takes anything happen in real life.
Good point. Our little brains are way too small to grasp the true potential we have.
Life will be dull if we always got what we want : )
I think we all should be thankful for what we already have. The human race is greedy not needy.
So true! Sometimes what we want isn't the best thing for us. We could hope for so much more, not only for ourselves but for those around us.
It makes me think of the "entitled" among us...You can't expect to get what you want, you have to work for what you want. Working for what you want is a huge growing exercise, it teaches us about ourselves, our strengths, weaknesses, passions and frustrations. Without these things I don't think you would get as much out of life. So...yes! Well put!Thank you!Lauren K
I'm still in the process of getting this message sink into my mind, "It's God's will not yours that happens in the end" whenever I ask for His help. I still make coy overtures to him anyway. Your line teaches me not to expect to much. Thank you again!
Apparently, if we got everything we wanted...we would learn nothing.Besides, who would do all the work?
Very well said.
I was going to say 'brilliant' and it is... but how about expecting what you want plus whatever else that's of a similar vibration or better??? :)
For a moment I didn't get it, duh, then I smiled and smiled. How wonderful! Life gives so much more than we expect, if we but broaden our focus, we will feel so abundant.
If we get what we expect or anticipate we are often confused or dejected at the outcome.
I agree. Some of the best things that have come into my life have come in unexpectedly and with no prior wish.
Some of the things I get, I don't want, and some of the things I want, I don't get. That's life!You would not recognize Benson Hwy these days. Serious urban sprawl! Thanks for the comment on my post!
I do believe that something, some power, knows what's best for me better than I do. If I only got what I wanted, I would severely be limiting myself.
or maybe get more than we expect!!!!
I like this way. It makes you pause and think about how much more there is than what you might envision.
An expectation is merely a precipice over which you will surely at some point ...fall
I love this one...i truly do in more ways than one. There are no limitations but the limitations we put on ourselves...we can have anything we want and lots more if we didnt limit ourselves
I agree with Miss Murphy, "Some of the best things that have come into my life have come in unexpectedly and with no prior wish." :)And you have put it so brilliantly too Marty!
Love this one. It reminds me of the scene in "Finding Nemo" where Dory says to Nemo's dad something like, "If you don't let anything happen to him, then well... nothing is ever going to happen to him. That sounds really boring."
