How many of us have often wondered that we have one life to live and we could do so much better or deserve so much better ? I know I do. The feeling has specially crept in during rough times in my marriage, career and other aspects. These are times/issues that I feel I do not have much control over. I am someone that believes in being very passionate about my relationships, my work and everything else. I am someone that could be excited to just see one tiny flower blooming in my garden ( excited enough to take multiple pictures and make collages lol). What should one do when life happens and all that passion is dampened ? I could be a better wife if the spouse put in as much energy and enthusiasm into the marriage. I could be a better employee if not for the politics at work. I could be a better daughter and daughter in law if others focused on being positive. I have so much happiness to share but alas, no takers. Is it my loss or is it their loss ? Is this just life and part of being an adult. I would be interested to know if there are women here that have had such moments and ways to deal with it. Meanwhile, I will make a list of things I am truly grateful for . I apologize if this is not suitable for “ snippets of life ” and sounds more like a vent post !
