Life is not the way it’s supposed to be

So I’m a bit tiered, I’d like to have more money, I feel like there are not enough hours in my day… In other words I am feeling sorry for myself.

A good friend of the family was recently diagnosed with cancer.

Imagine this, I’m feeling like a bit like a loser for feeling sorry for myself.

An extended family member’s father is recovering from surgery, her mother has sever dementia, her step father just passed away, her brothers have downs syndrome, she’s a single mother with a teen age daughter, and she is the only once capable of caring for all these people.

I’m really feeling like a boob.

I was chatting with a friend, complaining about how individuals will take advantage of my time to learn more about my expertise then never follow-up with the services we discussed. I find out a mutual friend of our just had a second surgery to try to catch the cancer coursing through his body, only to find out all the lymph nodes they removed had cancer in them.

How can I even consider feeling sorry for myself?

Two different people I know have been hospitalized for staph infections within a week of each other.

I mean seriously how can I look at anything in my life and consider it unfortunate?
 
How can I even consider waking up and not be thankful for everything I have? 

Than as if some higher power is trying to teach me a lesson I get the following quote in my in-box.

Life is not the way it’s supposed to be.. It’s the way it is.. The way we cope with it, is what makes the difference.

 

Thank you,
Natalie
