There are already hundreds of stories, legends, and anecdotes out there about how, sometimes, getting what you want can be the worst thing to ever happen to you.
This is not one of those.
Getting what you want, what you wished for, can cause its complications. If you’re not a well-balanced person, it can mess you up big time.
But can we talk, just for a moment, about how amazing it is to get what you wanted? What you worked for? Sometimes for years? Sometimes without any hope that it was ever going to happen? When the universe, that you’ve cursed and wailed at for so long, finally seems to notice that you exist, and, instead of shitting on you like it usually would…smiles.
Just for a moment, sometimes. Just a passing fancy the powers of fate have taken to you, a crush, that works to your advantage for just long enough to give you what you’ve tried so hard to get on your own.
Maybe it’s God. Maybe it’s just a random, happy accident.
But it’s those moments, those victories that can only be fully realized by a lucky break, that truly make life worth living.
