All good things in all good time - Run for the Roses
I used to believe that in order to lead a "successful" life, I had to MAKE things happen. Get a promotion, check. Get a husband, check, check, check. Get a house, check. None of it was really hard to do. The hard part came much later, when after acquiring these items I felt no particular sense of accomplishment. Perhaps they just came too easily. I prefer to think it is because my definition of success has changed. I'm so happy to wait for the good things in life to just HAPPEN. And in doing that, they materialize in beautiful ways with much more frequency than I'd ever expected. What a wonderful surprise!
