Yesterday I heard my 8 year old say to her friend,
"Life is not fair and life is not even but, in the end, we all get good things."
She was explaining why it was alright to let her have the last banana Popsicle.
I smiled because I taught her that line. I say it to my kids every time they fight or complain about the lack of fairness in families. I heard it from a friend several years ago and snapped it right up. The best lines are ones shared
I wanted to pass it along today
Let's think on it...
Life is not fair
life is not even
in the end...
we all get good things.
Tess' Soapbox Moment: So often, we unfairly compare our journey to others. Why? It shortchanges the notion that there is power and meaning in our own journey. Consider for a moment the idea that you are where you are at this particular moment because there is something to be learned there. That you will reach your destination when it is right for you. That I will reach mine when it is right for me.
Question: Can you see the power in this concept? Might it help us enjoy the journey a little more on the road to publication or in other areas of our lives?
