It starts with one thing
It ends with another
You believe it will turn out a certain way
And it doesn’t
Falling down and feeling heavy
Back up again
Bitter sweet is a saying for a reason
Why is there always a “but” to life?
I love her, but..
I like my job, but..
I had a great time, but..
I really can’t believe I have to do this, but..
I want to stop eating sugar, but..
I feel like shit when I eat bad, but..
I am proud of myself, but..
I’m an ok Mom, but..
I feel like I’m not living my calling, but..
I know there is a God, but..
I wish I could be more loving, but..
It’s all about hope.
