I don't want a llama

Here is a short story from this little book I am reading called Notes from the Universe:

You wouldn't believe the stuff people think they want. Just the other day someone was asking for a llama. Nothing wrong with llamas, I have a few myself, but the llama he wants is supposed to help him with his business; schlepping stuff over mountains, they're good for that. 

Now, why do you suppose he didn't just ask for a pickup truck? Trust me, he could've asked for a pickup truck, and he'd have been a lot happier. 

So ....I'm off to the bazaar. In the meantime, should you need anything, please be sure to ask for what you really want. 

I was just thinking about my relationship with someone I used to be close with, and this story came to mind. This person has put very little effort to remain a part of my life and sometimes I think I STILL want them around. It is like God revealing himself to me and asking me to choose the one person I want in my life, and I am still ignorantly choosing the "llama."

But I'm starting to see the error in asking for something too small or even unworthy of myself because honestly that is the truth. You would think the person I would desperately want in my life would be just so incredibly  awesome, but no I am asking the Universe to give me a llama.

It's funny just thinking about it, but it's a good lesson to know and keep in mind --think long and hard about the things you are wishing/hoping/praying for to make sure that you are asking for what you REALLY want.
