In Fairness

Confessions of a realistic pollyanna

When we are children, we want to make sure that things are fair. My friend should not get a bigger piece of the pie then I do. Rules of games must be strictly adhered to or else. Fairness is huge in the world of children.

When we grow up, we realise that even though we talk about people having their fair go, it is not always the case. Some people seem to endure more hardships in life then others. Some people are born with silver spoons in their mouths. Some people live seemingly blessed lives. Everything always seems to go well for them. Other people seem to have a dark cloud of doom following them. Nothing ever goes right for them.

In reality, all of us face our ups and downs. Yes I might be more blessed then others, but that does not mean I won't have problems. I have those days when the cards seemed stacked up against me. I have those days when I want to scream, Why me?" Then there are those others who are more blessed then me. With them I want to say, "Why are they more blessed then I am?" "Why do they deserve luxury and I don't"

The thing is we will never be able to explain the whys and why nots of the world. Good luck, no matter how much we think we deserve it or don't deserve it, comes to each one of us. We don't earn it. Bad things also aren't earned or unearned. We don't deserve it when the fates turn against us. It just happens.

Yesterday was a good day for me. Everything went well. I enjoyed the company of lovely friends. For that I give thanks. Today is fine as well. Tomorrow who knows what will happen. All lives have their peaks and valleys. And I give thanks for being able to enjoy the ride. Blessings
