You know I've always believed in Melissa's saying that the universe listens, right? I've even experienced that on my own, several times indeed. But I've tried several times trying to really focus my mind on something, really trying to believe that something good will happen, and it doesn't happen. Like my wish of seeing Melissa in a concert this year. Melissa (and millions of other gay people all around the world) also didn't get our wish of the failing of Prop. 8. Prop. 8 passed and then it was declared constitutional. Great.
You know what? I think the universe takes time in fullfilling wishes. I think it listens very carefully to each wishes. I think it watches your every step, whether you're really trying to make that wish come true or not. It watches over your efforts, your trials and errors. Sometimes it may seem like a coincidence, but when you trace it back to the past, it was your choices that shapes your condition today, wasn't it? 'The universe listens' doesn't mean that if you say, "I'm gonna win a lottery tomorrow" it would happen just like that. If you really win I'll say it's more of some damn good luck than the work of the universe. Lol.
I'm not giving up my dreams. There's not a second of doubt in my mind that I'm going to Melissa's concert someday, maybe even when gay marriage is legal in USA and maybe I'm able to bring my soulmate there with me, too. :D
