So often I see people write or quote these three little letters
‘ F M L ‘
I’m sure that they do it in such a flippant way, that they don’t realise how it really sounds …
But – if you stop and think about it’s meaning – it makes out that life is so bad that it’s not worth living … Or that’s certainly how it sounds to me .
It makes me cringe at times, to be honest.
I’m not saying that life can’t be tough – or frustrating – or that we don’t get hurt and feel crappy – or exhausted.
I am saying that we ALL have stuff going on in our lives that makes us sad and I love that people are real and honest about not pretending that it is any other way …
Life matters – It has ups and downs for everyone.
All of us.
No pretence necessary.
It’s good to laugh and have fun with your friends … make happy memories with your family. It’s also good to tell them when it’s tough and it sucks and you just can’t handle stuff.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it.
It’s also OK to say NO when you need to ..
No – I cant work overtime … No I’m already doing something.
No – I need to spend time with my family, friends, husband and/or children ..
Truth is – we can miss out on so much of the important stuff if we say yes to everything that comes our way. Time passes and you can’t get it back.
Flatout Making Lasting memories … That’s what FML should really mean 🙂
‘No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.’ 1 Corinthians 10:13
