Sometimes, we don’t get to be first. People get engaged, pregnant, or married and you might not be the first to know. Friends get promotions, family members move away, and the people closes to you chose another path without telling you first. You may feel let down or disappointed because you thought you meant more to that person than you do. Just because you place someone at the top of your list, does not mean that they will do the same for you.
You may not always get picked but that’s okay. You may not always be first or chosen but that’s alright. Your best friend is sometimes yourself, and that’s more than okay.
Sometimes things are just simply out of our control.
So, what can be done?
Be happy in the now, be happy with what you have instead of what you don’t. Be thankful to be included. Be joyful. Keep showing up. Be present in your life.
Keep creating your own.
