Everybody’s got dreams. Sometimes, that dream gets shut down. Sure, we can try to force the issue, like Cinderella’s stepsisters in the video above, but at what expense? Goodbye, time, money, and sanity! Hello, forced destiny!
True, many things worth having do not come easy. You want that toned body? Guess what: you’ve got to work out. You want mad guitar skills? Practice your fingers off.
Even still, there are times that, no matter how hard you work, it’s never gonna happen. You’re not always her type. You’re not always the right person for the job. You don’t always get picked for the next round. Unfortunately, that’s life.
Author, Donald Miller, tells about a character named Don Rabbit, who chases Sexy Carrot around the known Universe because he wants her. Eventually, through hard work and perseverance, he catches up to her and gobbles her up, only to choke and die in the process.
It’s a little silly, but it proves a good point: not everything you can achieve should be achieved. You wanna chase the forbidden fruit? Go right ahead. Remember how well that went for Adam and Eve?

So, learn from our ancient ancestors and, when God says “let it go,” let it go.
