As our faces are different; so do our wants differ

Many of us are waiting for one thing or the other and somehow, we are beginning to loose hope. We always long for something. This is the reason why we are human. Indeed, Economists have taught us that human wants are insatiable.

It is worthy to note that some of us have lost our blessings as a result of our actions and inactions during our waiting period. So how do we wait for our blessings?

Sometimes, we are confronted with questions like

  • Do we get all that we want?
  • Can we get all that we want
  • What do we even want?

You can have all that you desire but not at once
