When Life Feels Like A Circus

Hey guys!
Here is a re-post of a piece I wrote for a new blog I'm involved with for teen gals and their parents called Pearls 4 Girls! Take a read, then head over for more great reads! 
LOVE y'all!

Life is hard.
 Messy, crazy, hectic. Hard.
And just when you can’t stand the thought of taking another step- you have one more thing added for you to balance.
You lock your keys in your car. You failed that test you studied all weekend for. Your crush breaks your heart. Your grandparent is dying. You break your arm right before your prom. You didn’t get accepted to your dream school. 
These, these are the cries of the everyday woman.
The woman trying to walk the tight-rope we all call life. (All while toting her over-stuffed Vera Bradley tote, corralling her hyperactive 3 year old, and trying to not spill her piping hot Starbucks cup on the only clean pair of slacks left in the closet.)
Life is hard.
We get it! So when does the circus end?
It may be tomorrow, or it may be next week, next month, next year.
But even then just remember…
No one can juggle your life like you.
Not many can even think to do what you do.
And yet, you are being watched in wonder.  They are waiting for you to fall.
Keep going friend. Because in the middle of it all, there you stand, juggling and looking beautiful as ever.
“God is within her, she will not fall.” – Psalm 46:5
