You get what you ask for.

This poem has been going through my brain lately. I think that the winds are changing. I have an idea of where to begin. I say changing but I really mean they are once again going my direction. I have lived a charmed life. Typically everything I have wanted I have received. The only things I didn't receive were when something better/different was coming along and getting the original thing I wanted would have taken me to a different place.  I dreamed of going to South America on a mission. I got called to Brazil. I would dream of doing something or building something and it would happen. I also worked for things to happen. I think that you first have to know what you want and then things will materialize to help you achieve that desire. I got lost a little a couple years ago in that knowledge. Something happened that shook me a little. But, I understand that it was something I needed to learn and it has made me stronger and more aware of my strengths and abilities. I need to be true to who I am and what I love to do in order to find joy in all aspects of my life: family, work, church, etc.  So, think about this poem and what it means. When you discover it and it becomes a part of you, life will change! I will be going to the moon one day.  I bargained with Life for a Penny, and Life would pay no more, However, I begged at evening, when I counted my scanty store. For Life is a just employer, He will give you what you ask, But once you have set the wages, why, you must bear the task. I worked for a menial’s hire, only to learn, dismayed, That any wage I had asked of Life, Life would have willingly paid. (Jesse Rittenhouse, as quoted in Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich, 1960, p. 40)
