People think I have an “easy” life. Someone actually said to me recently…
“Sure it’s easy for you, you’re married and your husband has money.”
What they didn’t know is: I met John when he had a broken arm and a broken leg and wasn’t working.
What they don’t know is: He struggled battling drugs and alcohol for the first 8 years of our relationship.
What they don’t know is: He got sober at 28 and through it all, I never left his side.
What they don’t know is: I saw in him what he lost for many years, the man who could have this life. The man who deserved this life.
What they don’t know is: We both had big dreams. And we both went after them.
What they don’t know is: We’re both self-made We’ve earned every penny we have.
What they don’t know is: We still struggle sometimes, we’re both explosive and we fight a lot.
What they don’t know is: We agreed a long time ago, lifetimes ago, to have this life together. And that overrides everything.
What they don’t know is: We’ve earned this life we have. We’ve earned this love. We’ve earned this abundance. We’ve earned it all.
Things can appear so easy. We never know what someone went through to get all they have or what they’re going through now.
The important thing to remember is we create our lives. Every moment of them. We chose who we’re with. We choose our experiences. We create our abundance or lack of it. There is nothing in our lives that is beyond our control.
If you want something. Go after it. Earn it. And it can be yours.
