When Life Throws You Curve Balls

I am truly blessed.  I have a wonderful family surrounding me everyday!  That said, life isn’t always rainbows and unicorns though. I used to think, oh it’s just a tough time-things will get back to normal again.  Over the years, I found myself asking, what is normal?  I think sometimes we focus too much on what we perceive to be “normal” and we maybe should be just taking in life as it is.
So, as the years have gone by and the kids getting older makes the daily schedule so much busier.  Then, life happens, it throws us curve balls we didn’t even see coming.  Illness, injury, and life events can make everyday life so much harder.  Life is tough at its best, but the tricky part is trying to remember you are tougher!!
In the last few months, I think it is fair to say life has been tough on my family.  We have had curve balls, seems like they just keep coming sometimes.  I know that we all are going through this crazy life together, which is why I felt this post is important.  Some days are easier than others.  Some days I freak out, cry and break down, which is ok, as long as you remember to get back up and pick up the pieces.  Life certainly isn’t fair, but with all experiences good and bad we grow into the person we are.  Sometimes we just have to smile through the tears.
Today, I just wanted to remind everyone that all the “perfect posts” you may see on social media doesn’t mean everyone else has a perfect life, but just means they are choosing to focus or share the happy.  Everyday isn’t great, but if you look you can usually find something great in the day.  Just in case nobody has told you lately-you are doing great!  Embrace this crazy life we live in, choose how you will react-choose happy!
