A Wish That Didn’t Come True

Life is truly a funny thing. Some moments I have such clarity, others not so much. Just a few minutes ago I spoke a small prayer that something great was going to come into my life and at that exact moment I received a rejection letter from Kindle Singles for the short story I published. Having been rejected so many times in my life, I wasn’t devastated, but I did find myself saying, “Really? That’s the way this went?” But my next breath was full of certainty, this just wasn’t the great thing that was meant to happen. I counted up all the blessings I had in this one day – coupons that paid for the majority of my purchases, discounts that paid for most of my lunch, and I won $2 on scratch tickets – even though I spent $9. I looked at all I had received in such a short time and counted those as blessings as opposed to “not enough.”

The Moral of the Story

There are even greater things on the horizon, so please don’t give up hope, just keep pressing forward knowing that your greatest thought will be realized at exactly the right time.
