The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, right?
Your friends marriage looks so happy and full of love, right? Your relatives seem to be so financially stable and don’t seem to have a care in the world, right? Your neighbors kids seem to be so well-mannered and pleasant, right?
Do you ever wonder if anyone has “the perfect life”?
I know that I don’t.
I often have times that I say to myself, why is life so hard. I never thought my life would be this hard. Sure, I had an idea that life is a journey with some up and downs. But I have to say right now, I feel like my life started out as a hill and has turned in a very steep climb with no relief in sight.
And then if that weren’t bad enough, I see people passing me by on their climb to the top. They hike right onward looking refreshed and full of energy. No sweat on their brow and a big smile on their face. Their load is light and their body is strong and in no time they have vanished out in the distance to leave me all alone once again, with my mountain still to climb.
You know that other saying, that ALL things are better with time. Did you ever stop to ask, how much time? Days, months, years, decades?
I am so ready to reach the top, my time is now. It has to be…because I am weak, I am tired, I need some relief and I need to see some progress. My load is getting so heavy and my legs are shaking. The top has got to be close…
If I can’t have a perfect life, then please, just give me a piece, a small taste.
