We all have this idea in our heads of how things are supposed to be, but sadly this is why we end up dissapointed. Expect less. Enjoy more. Sometimes life doesn't give what you WANT because you NEED something else. And what you need often comes when you're not looking for it.
Don't hold yourself down with thinks you can't control. There's a time and place for everything. Don't force what's not yet supposed to fit into your life. When it's meant to be, it will be.
