Have you ever yearned badly for something and then finally got it? And what did you do when you got it? In my case I wanted a couple of things badly, and after getting them was very elated for the first couple of days, later felt that there was no big deal, in fact I did not know why I was wanting them in the first place - like the saying" the grass is always greener on the other side"m

I too had craved for many things which at one point in my life were totally out of reach. Then things improved to such an extent that i was able to get all that i craved for. However after getting these things i almost immediately lost interest in them. This is because it is human nature to crave for something and also to lose interest in them once one gets them. Thats why all saints talk about the transitoriness about worldly objects because everything in this life is temporary even the material objects we crave for and even our life itself.

Yes as a kid and teeanger I craved for things I saw, but back then I didn't get a hold of them. Now I have all those in my life. But what I really craved for was a stylish red tiled house. My parents now own one. Then I always wanted to get a Camry. My first car turned out to be that. Then I craved for my knight in shining armor. I now have him also. Another thing is that I always wanted to live in California. Now I am in this state. One thing I learned from this is that good things happen when we turn our back from the wishes. It is like only if we let go of our desire all our dreams get fulfilled. Law of attraction always works. All we need to do is to wish for things in positive way.
