All Your Dreams Won't Come True

      At a certain point you realize that though you are still relatively young you will not get everything in life that you hoped you would achieve. Its not that you won't be  happy but all of your dreams won't come true. When you finally realize this its quite humbling. Its kind of like facing mortality.  This does not mean one should not reach for the stars, but there comes a point when you realize that life is never perfect and neither is yours.
    Alas all is not lost . For every lost dream there is someone who has experienced the joys and wonders of this world, just not all of the joys and wonders of this world.

If you have low expectations then you will never be disappointed.

But to what extent does one change their boundaries on what they are looking for?

Midrash Rabah, Kohelet, chapter 3, paragraph 12:

Rabbi Yudan taught in the name of Rabbi Aybu:

No person leaves this world with even half his desires fulfilled.
If he has 100 he wants 200, if he has 200 he wants 400.

There is a thing called 'life'. If you are still young enough, you are extremely lucky. Unfortunately, there comes a time when you must realize that you don't stack up against those really talented people or those who have been through. Also, you may lose someone to death and you will feel like you just can't stop crying.
Life is hard and you will get to the point whee you just want a nice, calm life.
