A great friend offered me a fabulous snippet of wisdom/advice yesterday, and I am so grateful! It has really put things into perspective.
See, Chris and I have this opportunity of sorts at hand - which I will give more detail to once it's official.
But I was talking to my friend last night concerned about what others must think of us and our crazy life.
And here's what she said:
"No one can look down on you, judge you, or fault you for trying to better yourselves and your situation."
I know to our friends and families sometimes our life looks like a big mess. Maybe I'm just overly self-conscious.
But at the end of the day, it really doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. They aren't the ones paying our bills. Nor have we ever asked for their assistance. The only thing we have ever asked for is a little encouragement. So therefore, we know the reasons behind the decisions we make (whether others see them as good or bad) and sometimes that's not all evident from the outside looking in.
I really don't know why I'm rambling on about all this...I guess just to say that I don't have to worry about what others think because we're doing the best we can to provide a way to be the best we can be. And that's something to be proud of.
Oooh, that's a good one! ;) I like it when profound thoughts come out! So I'll say it again:
We're doing the best we can to provide a way to be the best we can be.
Well that's all for my Tuesday morning rant! Have a happy day!
