so whats the key?

okay I only have 5 minutes but there are just somethings I cannot seem to get out of my head. So bare with me as my thoughts spill out onto the this blog entry. Lately I have really come to realize that there is never going to be a time in our lives when things are easy. For the past few years I have for sure taken the sympathy card for hardest time in my life. Everyone always feeds me with support that this time when we as young adults, figuring out what we want to do in our lives, who we want to be and where we want to end up is the hardest time in our lives. BUT i beg to differ. I don't think there is ever a time in our lives when something is easy. As a child figuring out how to tie our shoes can be a quite daunting task that may have brought some of us to tears. Then there is the teenage years which heavens I was still deciding if being "cool" was important to me, moving onto college I mean WOW choosing a career? What could be harder? Then you graduate and life is great because you are finally making your own money to spend on clothes (that's an obvious for me) BUT then have to decide what is the right thing to be doing? Then comes marriage, for all I know it could be cake but lately I have come to find that even being married brings on its own different struggles. Then kids come into the picture and hello- GOODBYE thinking about yourself. And then somehow age catches up with you and you end up with physical ailments. SO what does all of this have in common? LIFE'S HARD! SO here is my question whats the key to happiness? How do you make it through all of this and enjoy the journey?

PS. in case some of you are wondering if I am mondo depressed or something? NOPE I am actually really happy in my life but the more people I talk to in different age brackets this is what I have come to fine!
