You Get What You Need

Our Au Pair, Heather, was at an ice cream shop with her friends when she came across this sign.

I love this. I love whoever put it up and I wish I could see all of the other tags that were on it. I don’t know what other things might have been there. Perhaps wisdom? Love? Friendship? Inspiration? Hugs? Chocolate? All good things, I’m sure.

But… you know that song ”You Can’t Always Get What You Want” by The Rolling Stones? Let me sing it for you, because I have an annoying habit of doing that too much.

You can’t always get what you want,

You can’t always get what you want,

But if if you try sometimes,

You just might find

You get what you need.

I think I often have trouble figuring out what it is I need. As a matter of fact, if I had seen this sign up at a store, I probably would have gone to the Kinko’s next door, made copies and then put them back up on the wall so nobody had to choose.

How can I be trusted to tell myself what I need? I don’t even know what I WANT for breakfast. And I could use a little of all of those things sprinkled on generously in my life.

So I think that when we stumble on those things in life that we needed, but didn’t even know we needed – like this little sign, which gave me a little hug that I didn’t know I needed, we need to share it.

And maybe by sharing it, we can all find what we need.

Namaste,

Kiran
