Since I've always been quick with an opinion an old friend once lost and again found suggested that perhaps I should share with more people my commentary. Never being one to pass on a challenge I thought I'd give it a whirl.
It would be easy to look at someones life from the outside and see it as perfect, for one fleeting moment to forget that they are human. You may see someone who has a fancy car, a fancy house, the idea job and the perfect looking family and be green with envy. Things are often not what they seem though. That person may be fighting alcoholism or may have cancer. That person may hate their job or be hiding their true desire to run and do nothing more than flip burgers. They may be spending so much time at work that they have no time to enjoy their car, their home or their family. The old saying the grass is always greener on the other side was formed for a reason. I had a customer once tell me the grass is always greener on the other side because it's covered in manure. It could also be because that is where the bodies are hidden. We all as humans have preconceived notions of where we should be at certain ages, what we should have accomplished and even things we should or should have known better than to not do or to do. The truth is there is no perfect path for anyone. Some people may find money easily, while others may struggle. Some people may find love early while others come to it late in life. As for doing stupid things I'm willing to bet even Donald Trump would tell you he's done more than his share of things he wanted to kick himself for after having done them. I look at my life and I know some would judge me, but in truth I am no more or less important for not having become a mother or for not being married at this point in my life. I am happier than I have been in my entire life and I made some horrific decisions early on in life and I'm willing to bet I'll make some not so great decisions in the future. Would I like to have found this inner peace earlier. Hell yes, but it is what it is. A person should not be judged for the possessions they own, the family the have or the items they can or can not purchase, but rather for the soul that they enlighten, the company they give and the love and light that they shine and share. No matter where you are at in your life just remember it's a phase, and it could be better or it could be worse. The thing to remember is no matter what put you where you are, you have the ability to change it one direction or the other and even if you pick the wrong options, it's OK to be human as long as you give it your best and if it was a mistake learn from it and never repeat it. The sins of being human is the price we pay for the rights to choose our direction and our life. So enjoy it, embrace it and learn from it.
