I've probably said it a million times before {maybe only a few dozen times on the interwebs}, but it's so incredibly easy to get caught up in life and throw yourself a constant pity party. How do I know this? Because I've been there, done that, more times than I care to share.

When I saw today's topic on the list, I honestly didn't know what to say. A burden in life? What do I have going on that is unbearable? Sure, we all have those frustrations and less-than-perfect situations in daily life. I could complain about the commute which I've really started to loathe. That days are so long, I often don't get enough sleep or have the energy {and time} to do chores and errands that need doing.

No, I can't complain about any of that, because they are all tied to innumerable blessings that I have in my life. The two hour commute is so worth it because it means I get to see my parents for a little while each day. In a few months, I won't get that time with them. The long days at work {I'm coming off a 12 hour work day right now} are because I'm doing a job that I absolutely love, and that hard work is leading me down a promising path. I have my health, happiness and enough love that will last me for the rest of my life.

I'm one lucky girl. You never know when life will throw you a curveball, so I'm incredibly thankful for the life I have had thus far.To those of you who are suffering physically, emotionally, or otherwise, I wish you all the best and that your burden may be eased.
