You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometime you just might find, you get what you need.

want what you have and you’ll have what you want.
enjoying life is pretty different from getting what you want.
enjoy it.

You don’t and can’t always get what you want. What you can do however is to train your mind to be satisfied with what you have. And who says that life won’t make sense if you don’t get what you want. Personally I haven’t gotten a lot of things I deserved and wanted. But I couldn’t be more satisfied with my life.

My advice would be to just every cherish moment of your life. You don’t need other objects to be be happy. Some of the happiest moments of my life were when i just sat outside seeing the wind blow by, nature taking cause and seeing life passing by.

Remember, it’s not a bad thing to be confused. Atleast you are not conforming yourself to do something you don’t want to do. I say be confused till you find the solution to your life. Spend your entire lifetime if you have to find out how to enjoy life to the fullest. And life shouldn’t always make sense. You don’t want your life to be planned out like a storybook and you are just acting a part in it. I am sure someday your life will make sense to you. But for now, do the best you can to just simply live it everyday. Think of each morning as another beginning, 24 hours for you to accomplish to do whatever you want. If you fail one day, you can always do it the next day.

And here’s something for you to ponder about: losing all hope is freedom

The trick is wanting what you can have, and not wanting what you can’t have.

If you can’t get what you want, you change what you want.

Life only becomes difficult when there’s nothing that you want.

Life rarely makes sense—even when we get what we want.

Sure, it’s better to want what you have, but to me that feels a little like settling. I promised myself I’d never settle for anything again. I’ve stuck to that promise, and even though I haven’t attained everything I want, I’m still working on it.

And life still doesn’t make sense. That’s all part of the fun.

You can’t find happines, it must find you.

“Wanting” is the cause of all problems.

1) life is full of suffering, and dissatisfaction
2) this dissatisfaction is caused by desiring
3) eliminate the desire, and you will experience less suffering

4) guess who came up with a way to do all this?
