In everything there is an exchange of some problems for others, some freedom for others, some limitations for others.
So as you wait for the new thing - a record contract, a home of your own, a wonder-job - see afresh the freedoms you will be giving up, the joys you will lose to memory. By all means, grasp the new thing if you wish, but expect to grieve the old as you celebrate the new.
With new birth comes the death of the old, and the inevitability of more death. We invite it with every breath. But don't be depressed by it, be inspired! Your death will invite new life.
Life is minor and major, stop wishing for utopia and live it.
