... sometimes life can be overwhelming.
I think we all struggle for perfection... or... what we perceive as being the perfect thing.
Be it an orderly home... the best haircut... a way of life...
We have this picture in our head of what things should be like... and when we miss that mark; for whatever reason... I think most of us ( or at least I ) take is as a personal failure. How did we mess up? What did we do wrong? All the woulda-coulda-shouldas haunt us late at night, and rob of us our sleep.
Conversely, what happens when you really did nothing wrong; and it things still fall apart?
What happens when other people's perceptions and ideals... rob you of yours?

Life can be cruel. Life can be unfair.
Sometimes the best of intentions, still aren't enough.
Sometimes... sometimes...
And sometimes.... life just sucks.

And while that seems harsh, some times... it's accurate.
You can focus on what went wrong, or you can focus on what to do next.

I think for me, the key is to remain grateful. Even for the hard times.
There are always stories and situations of those who are going through worse.
Hold each other close.
Dust yourself off.
Have faith in the future.

---see you all tomorrow.
