We all would like our lives to be our own.
Our own to have
Our own to keep
To decide on
To have the last say.
And in a perfect world it probably would be the case.
Our world is anything but perfect.
Often it is not what we hoped for
Different from what we expected
Far from what we wished for
Nothing we are willing to accept.
Life is unpredictable, unscripted, unfeeling.
So lesson to be learned…
Every time you embark on a new leg of the journey of life.
Go forth without expectations.
Don’t want what others have
Don’t wish for what others enjoy
Don’t expect what others receive
Don’t compare your finds with that of others
You might just miss the bounties right under your nose
For life is not a competition, a race or game
It is a journey
And each persons journey is unique, individual and custom made.
So admire the green grass on the other side of the stream
But be patient with yours
You might wish for luscious lawns like your neighbour and completely miss the pretty flowers among your weeds
Patience is key
just as it took time for the next person’s twigs to grow green
So will your your twigs grow into luscious lawn and if you are lucky
even have a few scattered flowers.
Enjoy your own garden…..
