When You DON’T Get What You Want

Dear One,

If you had a moment to watch my celebration video, you know my husband, daughter and I are overjoyed to report that we are pregnant…AT LAST! Thank you all so very much for caring, for your congrats emails, messages, comments and tweets. I am always so incredibly touched by your love.

Now here’s the truth: I spent a year and a half NOT getting what I want. And having a reminder every 28 days that the baby wasn’t here yet was not so easy. In fact, it was really hard!

I learned a thing or two on the path to this happy ending I’m in the midst of…a lot about what to do when you DON’T get what you want. So I made you a video today about What To Do When You Don’t Get What You Want.

GO HERE to watch my five step process.

What is that deep desire that has yet to come true for you? Not being pregnant yet or the soulmate not arriving yet or your body not being healthy yet?

Please take that desire and try my five step process in the video and let me know how it goes. I hope this process will help you on your path to getting exactly what you want!

I’m sending you a rainbow of love,

P.S. Oh, one more thing. Sometimes it isn’t that we don’t get what you want…it’s that we don’t know WHAT we want! I get it. Especially if you feel like you’re still searching for your life purpose.

If that is true for you, I wanted to ensure that you grabbed the FREE tele-jam that I co-led with Martha Beck and Lissa Rankin, all about Finding Your Calling.

GO HERE for instant access to the Find Your Calling 90-minute tele-jam and to learn more about our upcoming 7-week tele-class. Oh yeah!

Love This? Never Miss Another Story.

When you don't get what you want...sometimes you just have to try and get what you need.

I have learned along time ago to always have back up plans. Things almost never go as you plan.

PLAN B .... acceptance and patience.

In time you may come to find out the timing was off, something else arose needing immediate attention, or what you wanted wasn't good for you and what you got instead was just the ticket.

Time and hindsight provide answers, nothing happens by accident. I believe this to be truth.

Need to learn to appreciate the journey as well as the destination--whether it is the one you had planned on or not.

Interesting article, I understand that it's easy to get so fixated on Plan A that other options may be put out of the way. But as long as Plan B gets you to the same place as Plan A, I don't see what's wrong with considering other things

Some people may not be willing to try Plan B because they have become so set on Plan A. This was the case with a true-life story I read in a magazine. A woman was set on a dream wedding that she had dreamed about since childhood. But then she discovered that it was way too expensive for her means and would require years of saving at least. When her fiance suggested alternatives, she was just crushed. Eventually he agreed to put off the wedding for years so they could save (though I doubt he was happy about it).

Then a friend took her idea and used it for her own wedding. The lady was left feeling jealous and angry towards her friend. She was also extremely bitter at the thought that she may never have her dream wedding, even if she raised the money, because people would think she copied.

I don't know what happened to the lady in the end. But her story showed me what can happen if you set your heart too closely on something and don't consider the possibilty that it may not work out. You need to be open to alternatives if it does go that way, or you let yourself in for a big disappointment.

There's nothing wrong with following a plan B if plan A doesn't work out. It's just like finding the road to one place blocked so you take another route and discover somewhere else.

Kamia, you are so right! I wish more believers knew what you and I know. YAH explained to me that he wants me to learn to solve problems. As you probably know, he has plans for us becoming a "a nation of kings and priests". He doesn't want any spoiled kids in power so he puts us through "boot camp".

He also just enjoys sitting back and watching how his "kids" solve their problems. He applauds us.

YAH told me, "Do what you can to solve the problem. Trust me with the rest,"

It keeps me from worrying because YAH always comes through with an answer or an important suggestion as I "solve the puzzle" but only when I need it.

He wants us to grow up and learn to solve problems. He wants us strong and happy and successful. I like that idea.

and yours
