Also… To build on several things that were said on the site in response to the storm and rainbow post, this weekend someone said to me, “What you want never ends out being what you thought it would be.”

What?! That was so profound for me to hear, because it is so so so so so so so true!!!!!!! I have spent so much time doing the whole:
I’ll feel good when…
I’ll be happy when…
I’ll feel satisfied when…
Then, I get that (…) and I so do not feel the way I thought I would, it doesn’t do what I thought it would, nor does it play out the way I thought it would.

But, I refuse to believe it. I want to live in the fantasy that the (…) will bring me inner peace, will give me the rainbow. Delusional much? Maybe a little, but I think that is ok, we are all just figuring it out!

Thought I’d share!

    My mentor told me “Sometimes you plan a trip to France but you end up in Holland. You may be disappointed at first not being able to visit the Eiffel Tower or the Louvre, but after you get over that and open your eyes you will discover that Holland has tulips and windmills.”

    It’s a lesson I’ve always tried to remember when life doesn’t work out exactly the way I planned.
