A friend (who is a real Queen, Queen J actually) once told me a really, really good quote.  And I thought about it and this is how I interpreted it:

"Be happy with what you have. 

Because what you want, you don’t have yet and you can get it anytime you set out to get it…

…but what you have, took your life’s effort and is a statement of what you achieved.

So, take pride and be happy with what you have."
