When we don't get what we want, but end up with what we need. "That's Natalie" on
I never thought that I would be writing a blog, traveling, publishing books and heading back to Graduate School, but it's happening. I knew that it would be nice to finish a story and I never read blogs before. Especially, I wasn't looking to go back and get another degree. However, it's happening. In life, a lot of things we want to happen, may not happen the way we want. Sometimes, God, the Universe or whatever your belief makes things happen outside of yourself. So, what it comes down to is you get what you need, not what you want.
I say this with experience. Throughout my life and everyone I have known has gotten what they needed more than their wants. A good example, I wanted to live down South since I was a child. I was lucky to go to college in Alabama and I lived in parts of Georgia and Tennessee. However, my relationship and future endeavors were in Ohio. Now, I'm not going to act like I wanted to move back to Ohio, but I needed to be here. This move not only open up my current situation, but I'm able to enjoy my life more, and travel to more places including back down South. So, sometimes, it's an awesome opportunity for more doors to open in your favor when your needs are met.
Now, some of you may say, " I want things to happen", or "I want this guy/woman" and etc. However, truly look at the situation. That thing may not be the best for you or that person may not be who you're suppose to be with. We need our needs met more than our wants. We need shield, food, and clothing which are the basics. Some people don't even have these, but we complain about not eating a certain food, live in a certain house/neighborhood or wearing high fashion. Be blessed for what you do have because a lot of people lack. But, they would be elated just to get what you have.
There're still things I would like to happen in my life. My outlook is to have my needs met and my wants to happen the way it's destined to come. When you have this mindset, both things happens. It's awesome because your heart and mind are one. You will be happy and appreciative. So remember that needs open the door to ultimately get what you truly want.
