This afternoon I had coffee with a dear friend and learned so much about her experience and challenges with her family. It was a soul baring conversation and it really reminded me that everyone has their challenges in life, whether it be with one’s family, marriage, health, career…there is not a single person out there who leads a charmed life. And if they appear to, they are really great at creating illusions.
This is not news, I know. But, I cannot help but dwell on this fact of life for just a minute more. It makes me so grateful that my challenges are not with my family. My challenge is with my reproductive organs. It’s such a relief that my family helps make that challenge a little more manageable as opposed to magnifying it. I guess it also makes me wonder why we get faced with the problems that we do, and whether I would be as strong as someone else who is faced with something entirely different. These are all thoughts that will lead me nowhere. I just wanted to say, whatever your problem/challenge is, keep being strong in spite of it. You are made into a more amazing person for it.
