It's not about having everythingIt's about being & living & pushing through & loving & giving & getting up to go again. It's about believing & seeing from a different perspective. It's about doing small things & hard things. It's about the actual grind of life & transforming the everyday numbness into the everyday moments. Fairy tales & fictitious stories are just that. Feel good loveliness but no substance of day to day real life. The way your life is portrayed to others can so often be a pretense, an outward appearance of having it all together, because who wants to look like you haven't made it or are struggling. But the truth be told we are all the same -- mere mortals who all struggle, some are just better actors at hiding it than others. Comparison with others is the greatest killer of hope.
Hope that as a small seed there is a chance. Hope that even though its not like the others it's still ok. Hope that with what I have, who I am & giving it a go life will become the story of fulfillment without regrets.
