"I wish my life was always as easy as my Facebook posts make it sound.."

This was from a friend's FB wall several weeks ago.  It made me laugh--because I can relate.  I don't try to portray a perfect or easy life on FB....but, I do truly like to focus on the positive.  The reality is, I have bad days.  Days where I am overwhelmed and don't know what to do first.  And then nothing gets done.  Days where I am sad.  Days where I worry.  About where I am going to be a year from now.  About a lot of things.  Days when I am exhausted and have no patience.   Days when I cry.  Days when I want to run away.   

Sometimes we get caught up in reading other people's posts and think or believe how great or easy his/her life is.  Maybe some of us want others to believe this.  The grass is not always greener.  I think most of us know this, but sometimes we forget.  All of us have stuff going on.  We are all much more alike than we know.

Life is hard.  Marriage.  Kids....Life.  Even for those of us who make it a point to choose happiness or joy...there are still hard days!  My joy factor, though...yeah, I try to make it a point to make sure it outweighs the hard.

My life...not always perfect, not always easy.  Neither is his.  Or hers.
