I have noticed that sometimes blogs can just be less about real life, and more about pretty images. They are ways for us to escape our everyday life, and just stare into cyberspace and dream. Don’t get me wrong…I am a serious blog follower and I have my daily dose on my blog roll usually every morning before I get out of bed. But sometimes the best blogs that have been there consistently on my blog roll are the best ones that share the most about their life…like they are real people.
They all are real people…right?
So I figure that along with our “Get This Look” feature, we will introduce something called “Let’s get real”. Now this feature will happen sporadically- so don’t worry we won’t bore you with our life details every single week. But every once in a while when we feel like sharing…maybe something deeper.
So starting with this week it is my turn N, to share a bit about my life/struggles/triumphs etc.
To be honest, lately I have felt a bit down about my job. I mean don’t get me wrong I do love my job (most of the time). But sometimes things get tough, and situations are presented that well you wish hadn’t reared their ugly head. And you think wow, the money is great…but sometimes I prefer to not have the money and just not really have the full experience at all. If I could trade the two I would…sometimes I wish I could at least.
Learning I say…it’s all part of the learning. But sometimes doesn’t learning just suck. Like you think, awww c’mon! I get it ok. Noted. Understood…Capishe (channelling my inner Uncle Jesse from Full House!)
So yes even me…where most people think “Oh my gosh…you have the best job ever. I mean you get to shop all the time. Do what you want… etc. etc. etc.” Sometimes working solo is the hardest part. I mean I do everything alone..all day. Until everyone who works or goes to school outside comes back home. So with that said, this week I was seriously a) getting pretty darn emotional –female issues b) stressed-project issues c) possibly having a cold-health issues d) frustrated with life- uh life issues..the worst
On that note I leave you with two famous quotes. Quotes that I remember in these times of struggle, learning and growing.
“Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think you’ve lost time. There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.”
― Asha Tyson
“Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come.”
Whoa. Deep stuff.
