Life....not too shabby....

It never ceases to amaze me the way we're all dealt life. In looking at the struggles and joys of those around us, we can truly appreciate what we're given sometimes. The lives of those around us are ones which we couldn't live ourselves...and this fact makes us look at how we're definitely dealt what we personally can handle. When people ask me how I do what I do....I tell them "I just do..." There are no answers to how a person can find the will and energy to keep going when it's rough. You keep going because it's what you have to do to be living. The alternatives are to give up, and therefore to not live at all...

Someone once told me, when I didn't think I could live the life I'd been dealt... "You have to find a new perspective." I hated hearing that.....but a part of me listened, and now I fully understand. We don't always choose what we get out of life. We're given a lot...and sometimes we'd like to exchange or get a refund... LOL But the perspective with which we see what we're given makes or breaks the situation. When someone hears about my life, they see it from their perspective....and they wonder how I do it. Hell, sometimes I wonder myself. But I do it....and I am not really sure that I'd do it differently.....unless it involved unlimited spending power.....and maybe a maid. ;)

I want a maid too! I'm glad you've found a "good perspective" to help you through this. :)
