Of Wanting

It's been a few days since I've been online. Most gifts have been given out. I also received tokens/gifts myself (appreciate them very much!). Been busy with get-togethers and been catching up on some zzz's. I'm still sick-- sore throat, runny nose and now, a bit of a cough plus my monthly period. I feel crappy. I hope I'll feel better before Christmas, especially now that I'm on leave from work today.

Thoughts for the day:

Sometimes, if you work hard enough, you can get what you want. But most times, what you want and what you get are two different things. Sometimes, God breaks our spirit to save our soul. Sometimes, He breaks our hearts to make us whole. Sometimes, God sends us pain so we can be stronger. Although we can't have everything we want, we can want everything we have.

I believe in that... but then again, we can want everything we have and still want something we don't have. Selfish maybe, but it's also a part of human nature to dream and hope to achieve a goal. The question would be "when will that something be ours?". Only time can tell. If it's not meant for us for reasons beyond our knowledge, it won't happen... but remember Paulo Coelho's "The Alchemist":

...And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

Hmm... am I making sense? If not, that's fine. To hell with what other people say. Haha! It's just how I feel after crossing a couple of things from my Christmas wish list. :)
