This is just an outlet for me, to be able to get my thoughts out! I am a Woman, Wife and Mommy that also works outside the home! Just me trying to make it all work for the best for my family and myself! Just my journey!

I have spent most of my parent-life trying to make things fair. Then I started working outside the home and started trying to make things fair at work!
I have also spent alot of time explaining to my children how "life is just not fair"!
That's just the way it is!
I now spend alot of my time, at work, listening to others complain how it is "just not fair!"
Really, honestly, we are all adults at work and should know by now that life is just not fair and it never ever will be!!
I spent sometime really thinking and meditating on this the past few days.
I do spend alot of my time, trying, to make things "fair"!
Why? Why have I spent so much time trying to "even the score" between employees and between my kids?
My honest answer to myself was: Because we always want what someone else has or doesn't have and "the grass is always greener on the other side" (when your looking at it from your grass to someone else's)! And I don't want anyone, not even my kids to think of me as being partial!
I know, what is right for me isn't right for someone else and vice-versa, so why in the world do I work so hard on being "fair"?
Funny thing is, all this time I work on making things fair, I never expect them to be fair for me!
Then in my time and meditations on God's Word
I heard my words come back to me:
"Do you really want me to make things fair? I can do that, if that's what you really want!"
I think it is time, I stop spending so much time making things fair and start spending more time on what is right!
And like I said, what's right for one isn't right for the other!
My kids
love differently
anger differently
show emotions differently
they all need different things
at different times and at different ages!
My coworkers are the same way, therefor life and stuff will never be fair!
Now, if I could just erase that line from every ones vocabulary!
Then things were put into perspective again,
God really isn't fair! If He were, we would all be doomed and get what we deserve!
Now, that's fair!


  1. One of my favorite lines in a song is, "The beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair" (RelientK) Exactly the point you were making. If we got what was "fair" we'd all be toast!

  2. I really liked this post and I fully understand where you are coming from. No, it's not fair, and neither is cellulite! Just had to put some humor in the mix.
