day 16: lot in life

I have accepted a blog challenge! The quest is to write every day in May. There is a new topic daily. Check out all the topics here

Day 1: Story of my life in 250 words or less.
Day 9: A moment in your day (just a photo or a photo and words)
Day 10: Most embarrassing moment
Day 11: Sell yourself in 10 words or less
Day 12: What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life...)
Day 13: Issue a public apology.
Day 14: Ten things that make you really happy
Day 15: A Day in the life (include photos from throughout your typical day)

Day 16: Something difficult about your "lot in life" and how you're working to overcome it
I will start by saying I certainly don't feel like a victim. I don't believe life is happening to me. I am fully engaged in this life. The phrase, however, implies something I have had to endure and learn to live with. What immediately comes to mind is my infertility. It's been a painful and confusing journey. I don't have angry feelings about it. I feel like maybe this is my path for a reason and I feel like I am finally settled into it. I want to walk this path with grace, that is my choice. I sometimes have difficult moments, luckily they are fleeting. This lovely life is such a gift. If what I currently have is everything I will have, I am certainly full. Full of joy. Full of peace. Full of gratitude. I will continue to be thankful for what I do have now. It took years to utter those words, and they are genuine today. Acceptance is a powerful feeling. 

Join me tomorrow for: A favorite photo of yourself and why
