Hell in a Handbasket

In a perfect world you grow up with the perfect family, graduate high school, go to a great college, land a great job, find a husband, get married and then start your own perfect family and the cycle continues.  But we all know that this is not a perfect world and sometimes these ideals that are so cemented into our society end up ruining our lives.  I know many people who measure their success with these so-called standards that we set as life’s benchmarks.  

I think that the success of a person is not in their completion of these “benchmarks” but rather in the choices they make, how they choose to live with those choices and in the ability to be selfless, giving and humble.  Accountable of course. 

We all want things we don’t have but some people believe that if they don’t have those “things” they are somehow less than someone who has all those “things”  Is that fair?  Is that how we should feel?  Life is all about choices.  Make the right choices, for you, and life will be just fine. 

Two of my best friends are losing their homes.  One is losing her home because she makes bad choices, is not accountable, especially to herself, and in some crazy way thinks that society / life has just dealt her a bad hand.  She truly believes that she does everything she can to make a good life for her family and would swear to your face that she does.  Me, I’m not sure.

My other girlfriend has been making all the right choices, seems to be accountable to those that matter and what does she get?  NOTHING!  Her life  and livelihood are all going to hell in a handbasket!
