Getting What You Want

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

Today we're going to talk about

how life gives you what you want.

I'd like to read you a quote by

a woman named Tracy McMillan.

She writes that there's a saying,

you ask for patience and what

you get is a line at the bank.

In other words, life doesn't

give you what you asked for.

It gives you the people, places

and situations that will help

you develop what you asked for.

You asked for patience and what

you get is a line at the bank.

I know that one certainly

resonated with me.

It frustrated me and it also inspired me.

It made me feel like maybe there's

more support than I realized for

the things I'm most trying to

develop in myself and in my life.

This framework may not be a useful

way to think for all things in life.

But my encouragement to you is to look

at the things you're currently asking

for, the things you most want that maybe

you're praying for you're meditating on.

And instead of immediately dwelling

on the fact that these things haven't

happened yet, perhaps open your mind to

the potential that they may happen in

a way different from what you expect.

You might look around at the people,

the places and the situations that

you're currently in and ask, how

might these things be helping me

develop what it is I've asked for?

Regardless of whether life or the

universe is actually putting these

things in your life to give you what you

want, this is a powerful reframe of the

current experience you're going through.

And if you look closely, you

might start to see how they can

aid you in where you want to get.

Thank you for your practice.

I'll talk to you in the

meditation and take care.
