… is not real life.
Life on social media always seems rosy and happy and carefree.
But, real life is mostly about showing up every day, working, and even struggling.
Sure, there are moments of ecstasy, but they are few and far between.
On most days, it’s about the work, the effort we put in, the uncertainties we face, and the challenges we face in every area of our lives. Better yet, it should be about the contribution we make.
Be careful of thinking that other people’s lives are better than yours. You just probably haven’t seen the struggles they face and the courage they muster to take the leap. You also don’t know what they went through to get to where they are right now.
Life may not always be exciting or fun or happy or “share-worthy." But, more often than not, life is good.
Most importantly, learn to dance in the rain. There will be no rainbows without it.
