‘Having it All’

“But one thing I’ve learned is that the minute I start fixating on what I don’t have — time, money, a child I can send to camp for the summer, central air conditioning — I just feel that much hotter and put-upon, and those bad feelings seem to attract extra obstructions to my day.”

  1. Wow, thanks for sharing. The Atlantic’s doing some great stories these days…

  2. What a great article on perspective and positive living. I like that she doesn’t gloss over her struggles and frustrations, but chooses to focus on what she has instead. Awesome.

  3. Being in the same situation, mostly it taught me to look ahead with patience. And to say nothing at all when others are complaining about their perfect offspring :))

  4. I think there is definitely so much that you can get from this great quote here. So many great options that go a long with it so much here. You can live life like this so much here. Toronto shutters
