I’ve heard this a million times and have said it a million times. Several times in my life prayers have been answered in weird or different ways. I tell people I always wanted to go into law, law enforcement, forensic science: something in that area. Now I’m on the other, receiving end with living next door to a convicted drug felon. It’s been a huge lesson on how life and justice and the police really work.
I’ve always wanted a kayak, now I just got two inflatable ones, used. Now I just have to figure out how to pump them up. Again, they came along when least expected.
I hope someday to own a house that’s a colonial. I suppose sometime that will drop in my lap as well in a way I least expect.
I don’t wish for the big stuff in life. All I want is a simple life. That’s it. I want to make a decent living, be paid what I am worth for my services, enough to feed myself and those who depend on me, and to have money to buy the small extras, keep a roof over everyone’s head, gas in the car, and a running, dependable car. Then when I don’t need the car anymore, be able to live somewhere with easy access to transportation. Yes, I would love an electric car or hybrid but it isn’t in the works right now. Yes, I would love to be out of the current neighbor situation and one day it will happen but for right now the devil I know is better than the one I don’t.
I’ve been trying to keep the mindset of: ask the universe for something, then let it go. I know Joel Osteen says something similar. I’ve written a wish list down and now I’m trying to put it out of my mind. I know what I ask for will come at the right time.
