  1. That’s not what I wanted
  2. as if only she could pick and choose
  3. what came next in her life
  4. like sending back a plate of undesirable
  5. food
  6. a meal which she hadn’t ordered
  7. or maybe she had but it just wasn’t like
  8. what it looked like on the menu
  9. and maybe she could try again
  10. and order something differentl
  11. which she might enjoy instead; or
  12. like a pair of shoes that at first
  13. felt comfortable when trying on
  14. but after wearing
  15. for an hour or so
  16. after leaving the store
  17. you realized they really weren’t
  18. what you wanted after all
  19. and maybe you could exchange them
  20. for a more comfortable pair
  21. or a style more convenient
  22. that would serve you better
  23.  doesn’t that happen to you
  24. sometimes
  25. I know it happens to me
  26. Life isn’t that way though
  27. Is it
  28. You get what you get
  29. And you don’t have a fit
  30. As my son’s kindergarten teacher
  31. Aptly put
  32. Life is always filled with surprises
  33. she smiled and knew it may take awhile
  34. before it got better
  35. for now it wasn’t what she wanted
  36. but she would somehow continue to make things work
  37. after all things could always be better
  38. but then again things could always be much worse

I'm an artist, poet, writer, activist and more. I like writing about the ordinary and transforming it to extraordinary, which I think it already is but you may have been to busy to notice. Sometimes I write about politics, love, relationships, and every day strife. If you like my blog, I invite you to follow me. Thanks for stopping by. Peace and great joy to you always! Cindi
