"Seriously So Blessed"
Anyone heard of this blog??? Well, I read it this morning and I have to admit it is... seriously so funny, but I could see where they they were coming from. Some of these blogs and holiday cards can be a little much. I'll be the first to confess, I tend to put our life's highlights not "lowlights" into my blog and holiday letter because I feel like SERIOUSLY who wants to read about someone else's bad life... unless it has a funny twist of course. Trust me, I in no way try to sugar-coat life. I am am optimist though and truly feel most things aren't worth getting that down about. I try not to give negativity a whole lot of my energy. I don't mean to make light of any of very sad or difficult situations. I know some of these cause real suffering and I have empathy for those in these very tough situations. My sister was bothered with me the other day because I don't share my problems. She said my life seemed "bullet-proof". Seriously, I don't have any huge problems going on. At least nothing that warrants gabbing about. My life is not "bullet-proof" and believe you me I have had plenty of ups and downs (like everyone else). I could complain a ton about the injustices of my life or I could... count my many blessings... name them one by one (that was for you, lds friends ;-)) and move on. Check out seriouslysoblessed.blogspot.com if you want to laugh and if you are lds you may find it even more seriously so funny!
