I used to think that once life started, I mean really started, that everything would be fine and I would live my life happily until I was old and grey.
Wow!! Was I naive. From the outside, I have a great life. I have a good looking husband, 2 amazing daughters, live in a nice house and have a job I really like.
On the inside, my life is kind of a mess (let's leave it at that for now). I know that life is not perfect. I know that thing aren't always what they look like and that you never know the strife in other people's lives.
But, come on!! How is it that everyone I know has crap in their lives. That the perfect lives and marriages I thought that OTHER PEOPLE had, are not perfect. I don't know if it's the economy, or just this past year, but everyone is having issues in their lives.
No one is truly happy with every aspect of their lives. If their marriage is fine, work sucks. If work is fine, their marriage sucks. If one child is doing well, the other child is Satan incarnate. If they like their house, they hate their families. And on, and on...
That's one of the reasons I go to Latin Jam - I have no time for the thoughts in my head because I am so busy trying to follow along. That's one of the reasons I blog - I can get some of my thoughts out in to the ethos. That's one of the reasons I over schedule myself - so I have no time to reflect on my woes.
Now I truly get it when adults used to talk about enjoying our youth, and not to want to grow up too fast. This being an adult thing sucks!!
That being said, I am grateful for everything I have. I just wish I could have everything I want - not monetary, just what I envisioned my family life would be like.
