I woke up to the sound of a child screaming because they did not get their way. As I struggled to go back to sleep I realized that one day this will be my everyday reality. If I plan on being a mother someday. This will be my reality. I thought about how I have conditioned myself to sleep when there is noise around. It is almost to the point where I cannot sleep unless I am surrounded my noise. But what can you do?
Often times in life, we complain about what we wish could be. And what we think should have been. But if you take a step back and realize that things are not always what they seem and that it is not up us, we will learn to be at peace what comes our way. I may not like present circumstances, but I must always remember, this is life. Life is full of discomfort simply because it is not paradise!
