I was having one of those days today where I just felt sorry for myself. Sometimes I look at my life and think it's just not quite where I'd like it to be, and it's frustrating.
So, I though that I'd invite some friends over to play the game of Life. I love that game! In that game you can make a ton of money and just cruise along, picking up kids and winning Nobel peace prizes as you go. However, I appear to be in the minority though because I can never ever get anyone to play with me. Anyhow, after some convincing we set it up.
It was the worst game of Life I've ever played! I made the lowest salary the entire time, had no kids and had a crappy house as well. I think if you didn't automatically get married I'd probably have ended up alone! I didn't think it was possible for your actual life to be better than your life in the game, but mine sure is. It made me think about the complaining I've been doing and realize things could be much worse. I'm feeling better now and am back to appreciating what I have.
Who knew losing at a game could make you feel so much better? :)
Waiting for James to arrive!
