It Must Be Nice

Every once in awhile you read something and say to yourself, "Yep. Nailed it." That's how I felt when I read Michelle O'Neil's blog post about how to afford what's important to you.

It's funny, because yesterday before she posted that, we were e-mailing back and forth about how it all boils down to intention, and when people say the wrong thing, what matters is the place the "wrong" thing came from. When someone starts a sentence with, "It must be nice to..." it comes from a place of self-absorption and victimhood, which, who has time for?

So, do yourself a favor, click over and have yourself a giggle.

I loved it, too. It reminded me of a time long ago when a relative said "must be nice," when I ordered a really BIG stroller/wheelchair for my daughter.

It's true - intention is everything. And what I've learned is that those comments have everything to do with the other person and their own dissatisfaction and NOTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH ME and my life. It's just sometimes hard to remember that...
