What if life really isn't fair?
What if people never treat you right?
What if your children never come to appreciate all the sacrifices you made for them?
What if you never get the promotion you feel you deserve?
What if, as hard as you try, you never get ahead, stay on top of the bills or find the mate of your dreams?
What are you going to do then? Will you curl up into a little ball and decide to die?
Most of us have experienced things that seem inherently unfair at times. We all think there's Someone out there keeping score and one day, by golly, our day is going to come. We'll be well-loved in return for all the love we've put out there. We'll be rewarded with a better job to make up for all those dead-end ones we had over the years. Or that guy or girl will finally realize you are the one and will return to you with wide open arms, ready to love you just the way he or she should have all those years ago.
But what if it never happens?
Here's what you should do instead of waiting on that 'one day':
Create the life you want now. Don't wait on someone else to give you some boost, help or direction that you can give yourself.
Don't wait on Mr. Right - become Mrs. Right by being the person a great guy would want to marry.
Don't wait on your boss to recognize all your hard work - pat yourself on the back, find different ways of expressing your creativity or open the doors of your own business.
Don't wait on your kids to come visit and call on a regular basis - become a mentor or volunteer with the hundreds of thousands of kids who would love to have a big brother or big sister like you.
Because - you know what?
Life isn't fair - at least not the way we think it should be - and we simply have to roll with the punches sometimes. Which oftentimes mean creating our own opportunities to thrive, experience life to the fullest and make the most of what are our God-given talents.
Don't wait on Life to even up the score. Create the life you wholly want and desire for yourself.
Don't wait on anything else...
