Interesting comment...

...the idea we can have everything we want at once is extremely toxic, not to mention persistent despite abundant evidence that it's a crock. Sure, some people have love, career and baby all at once, but if you look closely even at the people who make it all work, there are still sacrifices. There have to be.
-- Carolyn Hax, The Washington Post

  1. Yeah, I think she has something there. I know for a fact that you can't have it all (the husband, career, kids, house, car...blah, blah) without something giving. You give up time, a certain amount of freedom. Having it all comes with problems at different levels.

    It is a wonderful life, but don't get it twisted. There is work & sacrafice at every level and to have the stuff of our dreams.
