Sometimes there is something we want very badly, but it seems that the more we try to obtain it the further it slips away from us. People generaly react to such situations in two ways: they get angry and frustrated and just give up or their determination becomes stronger and in the end they achieve what they want. And once they get it, the cherish it forever because they worked so hard ro reach there. There is a quote I once heard "Life answers our questions in 3 ways : It says yes and gives you whatever you want, It says no and gives you something better or It says wait and gives you the best." But do we have the time to wait? I dont think so. We are so used to getting instant results that we sometimes tend to forget that not everything in this world can be Maggie Noodles!! Hell even I, inspite of saying all this, get so damn impatient at times ( something which my best friend points out so gleefully ).
There is a time and place for everything and things will happen when they are meant to, not before it nor after it. And look at it this way. If everything was handed to us in a silver platter, would we appreciate it or enjoy it as much? I am sure not.
