I liked this a lot. Took me a long time to realize that when we say “life” we often mean our choices and our expectations.

Plenty of times I’ve tossed out that old phrase about feeling beat up by life. When you think about it, it was never life that beat me up. It was my own choices. Things I expected to go a certain way, but they didn’t.

All it takes is a day in the forest or on the beach to remind myself that life, itself, is pretty nice. It’s all the other junk that makes it complicated. And by other junk, I mean people and money. lol. ❤
