A Breakthrough!

Saturday, May 08, 2010

I may have a breakthrough to my "not totally happy" issues.. I will think about this and post more tomorrow, but I wanted to get this thought out there..

I just responded to a Facebook post about Mother's Day. My intention was to wish my Facebook Friends a Happy Mothers' Day. My first instinct was to mention that I was not a mother, but that I was well wishing everyone else.
WHY do it that way? So that everyone would feel sorry for me since I am not a mother? What's the difference?? Yes I am bummed. Yes, I look to "lack of family" for a possible reason for my being incomplete or unfulfilled. But that is no reason for me not to look at the good in my life..

I must figure this one out!

    Thanks ladies! I also concentrate on my pain...arthritis, bad knees/hips/back.. I really need more things that I enjoy in my life. Trouble is, DH doesn't share many of the same things. Some yes, some no... I really need to make my own pathway to fulfillment.

    You are you! We have children or we don't. Those that do sometimes wish they didn't. Those that don't sometimes wish they did. Hang in there. You ARE making a breakthrough!

    Children aren't the only thing that can fulfill your life. We don't have any because of work that my spouse did and the risks it would pose to chldren. We have found lots of other things to fill our lives. At this point I am not even sure I could cope with the additional responsibility of children nore do either of us want to.

    It's really easy to concentrate on negatives and not see the positives in front of us. I have a friend with very bad arthritis who constantly worries about all the things she can't do when she is so busy with things she can do that she can't get them all done. It's all a matter of perspective.
