I cannot remember where I ran into this but I love it.
It really should be one of life's philosophies if it isn't already.
We do really get what we settle for.
One of my biggest pet peeves is those who complain and take no action.
"I hate my job." "I don't like this." "I don't like that." etc.
I hate my job too. LOL. But I do have to pay the bills and so I stay. At the end of the day, we do what we have to do. However, while I do that, I am working hard to get to where I want to be.
Life will not always work out the way we wanted or envisioned, but we have to still at least try to and get there. If not, we are just settling with what happens.
