” Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.”
It is funny how generations of women within the same family do not communicate. As for me, I am working toward breaking the habit, and learning that communication is key! I am living proof that my daughter and I are better for it and also my mother. The day will come as we remember the good times as being a great experience.
I find myself in reflection…do I have a good relationship with my family? Truth be told, we are a work in progress. We talk things out, we don’t fluff and we are as real as can be!
The one thing that I find myself struggling with is having high expectations of others. I tend to want to see the greater good than the greater bad, so I get disappointed when things don’t work out.
These days, I except people as they are rather than what I expect them to be. It takes lots of practice and prayer to get to that mindset. It is a life-long process.
If you find yourself in a similar situation, reach within your heart, and know that you made an effort in good faith and love.
