I heard a good piece of advice I thought I would pass along today...
Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
I know a lot of people (okay, myself included) that constantly go about wishing they had this or that, or wanting to "fix" people. Sometimes you need to take a step back and realize that A. your kids don't really care if you don't have a ton of money as long as you go to the park once in a while, and B. you are NOT God's gift to the human race. I guess its probably something I am trying to change about myself- the fact that I cannot change other people.
Nothing horrible is going to happen to me if I just choose to focus on my own family instead of the mess that is some others lives.
And I'm not going to spend anymore sleepless nights worrying about it.
And in line with mentioning sleepless nights, we have started the combat over bed time with the Bean. She confronted dad about it last night.
"I wish I were a grown up so I could stay up later."
Oh? That's why you want to be a grown up? Girl, slow down. Being grown up comes with its own set of responsibilities. Hello bills, jobs, kids, cars. Just be a child for a while, kay?
Or, at the very least, if you want to be more "grown up", why don't you get more familiar with the laundry?
I'm pretty sure that would set you straight.
