Enjoying Your Journey
Just when you think life is good, the floor can collapse underneath you; leaving you hanging on for dear life. You're fighting to keep your sanity and nerves intact. After awhile, you're unable to breath and enjoy yourself, instead, you're always tense, waiting for the next mountain to conquer. Instead of expecting the best and focusing 100% on what's ahead, you list what can go wrong, will go wrong, and actions to take when it does, which it undoubtedly, will. Or so you believe. This sounds like a good plan, right? Not!
Go back to the time when you were a young girl, who still believed in fairy tales. You were a dreamer. You expected that when you grew up your life would be just as you dreamed!
Somewhere, along the way reality hit. That young girl and her dreams died a slow death. Life's rejections, hardships, and disappointments transformed that young, naive girl into a woman; a real woman living in a real world. And, it's no fairy tale.
Everything in life has a cost. Look at the couple, smiling, hugging, celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. Hidden are the disappointments, heartaches, and struggles they had to get over, under, through; and, of course, there is the forgiveness. We applaud the high powered CEO, she with her power, all the perks and prestige that come with it. Easy confidence belies the doubt, stress, personal sacrifice and everyday scrutiny.
