Mindful Monday: We are all just trying to function

Monday, February 16, 2015

Recently I was reading this post about having a secret with regard to a loss of a close family member. As I read it I thought, it is so crazy what so many of us go through behind the screens of our phones, computers and the images we post. We are quick to judge and imagine everything everyone posts is based on their everyday reality--which is not always the case. 
We are all just trying to function...

For instance, an old high school friend of mine recently posted on her Facebook page what she has been going through and asked for help. My instinct was not to feel sorry for her and ignore the post.  I instantly thought how amazing she is! I love people who are real and are not afraid to put themselves out there. She is definitely going through a tough time, and she knows I wish her the best. I bow down to her for the courage it took, and hope she gets tons more positive messages sent her way so she can turn the tide. 
Never judge a person 
until you've walked a mile in their shoes...
In my journey to be more mindful in all aspects of my life, I go through a lot of ups and downs.  Some days I am very present, productive and feel super alive! On other days, I have low energy, cannot shut my brain down or I wallow about the most mundane things (which at the time seem highly important to me).  

So when you see my posts or photos know that these are glimpses of my life. Like the saying goes, We were born to be real, not perfect. If you are having one of those days where your feeling a tad bit jelly about someone's life, a vacation post, or a celebration photo--remember there life is not perfect. 
Yes, I am happy.  No, my life isn't Perfect...
