“Remember: sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.” Dalai Lama.
Went into my favourite second-hand book store in Canberra today with a very fixed idea of what I wanted... but do you think they had it? 😞😞 So I browsed grumpily for a bit and then stumbled upon some other unexpected treasures which had me skipping out the door with a super wide grin across my face. Today ‘not getting what I wanted’ has totally worked in my favour.
Have you had something not go your way which turned out to be a blessing? Like missing out on a job you wanted only to be offered a better one, finding they’ve sold out of your favourite dish at a restaurant to try something even yummier, or missed the turn off the highway to find yourself in an wonderful spot you never knew existed.
Sometimes the universe really does have your back! 😉
