Thoughts on Luck

"Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but getting what you have, which once you have got it you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted had you known."
- Garrison Keillor

I think I know what this means.
What do you think?

I *totally* agree with that quote! I would never choose what I really wanted, because what I think I want probably isn't what I actually want.

A very circle-y concept isn't it?? Goes along with "Be careful what you wish for because you might actually get it."

May I just put forth the immortal words of the Rolling Stones

"You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you might find You get what you need"

I think it's a real real real sentiment.

There are so many times in my life that I don't get what I thought I wanted but instead get something better and realize if I'd known about it before that ... I would have wanted what I have.
