Something manifested in my life that I have been wanting for a long time. First, it seemed something "small", but I came to realize that this manifestation have a greater impact on my life than I thought at first.
I am aware now that it didn't manifest before because I was not ready for it; now, it feels just like "the next logical step", and that's why I saw it at first as "small" and not the "almost impossible miracle" I was expecting.
These thoughts brought about some reflexions on how we try to create our own reality and why we sometimes fail.
It seems to me that we don't create our reality by "wanting" (or "expecting") things to manifest by "magic", but by preparing emotionally to receive them into our lives - that when we are really ready to receive, manifestations feel like "normal", "natural", even "small" and unimportant - which means that dreams must have comfortable places in our lives before manifesting - which means that when dreams seem too good to be true they are not the next logical step, and still far from manifesting in the physical realm.
I would really appreciate some comments on this idea:)

I believe that reality is created and manifested in accordance with our beliefs and what we know is true.
If that is true I can conclude that your beliefs sufficiently changed so that thing you manifested felt like "the next logical step".
An example of this process would look like this:
Joe wants to be rich. That desire and a little focus gets the universe going. One day Joe finds some money on the street. "Money, cool", thinks Joe. The next day Joe's friend bought him lunch. "I just saved a ton of money", thinks Joe. His birthday is in two days. Joe gets some expensive presents and a bunch of money, again. Next week Joe gets a promotion at work. With promotion comes more money. Let's say that by this time for Joe having lots of money is not a strange idea anymore. Joe comes to own a very successful company. He makes a ton of money. One day, Joe was kind of bored and decides to buy a lottery ticket, and guess what, he won. But Joe was not overly excited because he didn't need more money, he already was rich, he already was making huge amounts of money. The lottery win was just "meh" for him, you can say even "the next logical step".
So what happened in the above story? Joe gradually built a belief in money, that he has it, he gets it etc. He got used to having money. He probably developed all kinds of positive beliefs regarding money with time. He started to always expect more money. So the lottery win was not such a big deal and the next logical step. By the way, in my country some people like to say "money goes with money".
I hope I was clear about my idea, thats how I see the situation.

I think I know what you're saying. When you want something, and it's like "Oh wow, this would be so great!" but by the time you get it, the emotions around it are rather neutral, like "Yes, of course."
I almost never (I want to say never but I'm actually not completely sure) get what I want while I still am actively 'wanting' it. I think this is because the way I experience wanting is as a yearning, something to fix a lack that I've decided is there and needs to be filled. Once I get over wanting it, where it hardly comes into my mind and just seems like another option out of many that can happen or not happen, I get my manifestation.
What's interesting is knowing this has not completely eliminated my tendency toward yearning for what I want, although it's definitely much easier to let go now than it was previously. Sometimes it still feels like "It must be this person/thing/circumstance or nothing!" And I don't seem get what I want as long as I'm in this state of insistence.
