Who says you can’t have what you want?

Complete Transcript:

So, this week I was told that I can’t have what I want.

I can’t have what I want. 

For 9 months I have been working towards something really important that I had planned out exactly with a specific deadline, and someone got to decide FOR ME that I won’t be able to achieve that goal the way I had planned. 

It was the epitome of the 3 things that I refuse to give up ever. I was told…

1) you can’t have what you want

2) you have no control over this

3) you have no choice but to accept it

Um, NO! I absolutely object to that.

So, the very first thing I did right away was…

Slide into a slump. My brain piped right in and said “What are we doing this for then? It would be so much easier to sit around and take it easy for the next 6 months”, and I was almost convinced to give up. But I thought about it for a bit, and I came up with the perfect solution. It was a win-win for everyone involved so I was positive that there was no way they would be able to refuse.

And then, the response I got back was “Thank you for understanding, but no.”

BUT NO!!! So that’s when I got a little annoyed, and still, this seemed to be totally out of my control. There was nothing else I could do.

Then all of a sudden, BING, my notifications chimed and I had a message from a colleague, and at that moment, the most AMAZING door swung wide open. She shared an opportunity that I never would have noticed or entertained had this other door not been slammed in my face. I wouldn’t have been looking, and when this same message came through, I would have said “Thanks, but no thanks”.

My point: even when it looks like things are not going your way, there is always another path to take, and you have to keep your eyes open so you don’t miss the signs.

You ALWAYS get to choose your own adventure.

So what do I want NOW? I want to leave a door open for YOU so that for even ONE more second you don’t have to feel that you CAN’T have what you want, that you DON’T have control over your own life, and that you have NO choice but to accept it. 

There IS another path waiting.
