Be careful what you wish for…

There is a song Home by Daughtry and yes it’s an old song but lately in the last 3 months that song has been stuck in my head…

‘Be careful what you wish for,
‘Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all,
And then some you don’t want’

Well ain’t that the truth and we tend to take that for granted. We pray we ask the universe we do lots of little things and sometimes very subconsciously, and when we receive this gift we so taken back that we either don’t know what to do with it or we abandon it.

So you know received this abundance from God and you literally sit with it in the palm of your hands not knowing what to do with it, fear sets in and either lets the situation take control over you or you just ignore it.

Now if there is one thing I know for sure is that you never get given this wish unless you work for it. For example winning the lotto I mean come on that’s just pure luck and something I completely disagree with. Gambling your hard earnings is for me a very reckless way of trying to gain wealth and this kind of wealth is tangible, its fleeting and just how much happiness does it bring.

Wishing for wealth through employment is giving and receiving and in the end appreciated because you work hard to gain that wealth so thinking before spending and giving back becomes second nature because it humbles you on how you attained it.

Wishing for love… We have to agree sitting home and praying for a life partner is pushing the limits on achieving that goal. We’re not witches we can’t cast a spell and miraculously create a love of life. We have to put ourselves out there and meet people and maybe instead of asking to find love maybe ask to open your heart to work on yourself in allowing you to meet the right person and know whether their intentions with you are what’s right for you. That they will love you back and harmoniously share a life together of happiness.

My point is we can pray and ask for our situations to change or get better or we can just stop and look around and realize that we are where we supposed to be and appreciate what we have because you may just wish for something or someone and in the end it’s something you actually never wanted and now that you have it you have to decide what to do with it.

‘So I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old’

Home is within your heart, within your soul and if there is no peace there, then how can you find it anywhere else.  So before you ask for anything be sure it’s not what you already have and ask why do you want it.

I’m just saying….
