Tit for Tat

Everything in life is a tradeoff.  I learn this more and more every day.  There is no way to have it all, at least not all at the same time.  If you want more time at home with your kids, that means less time for work and thus, probably less money.  If you want quiet time in the morning before work, that is less time in the evening before bed. Want to make time to exercise? Sure!  Just forget about those dinners out with your friends.  You want that sexy bikini body?  No problem, but don’t even think about eating those potato chips and cookies.  Everything has a price, the tricky part is figuring out what is worth it to you.  In the words of Mumford and Sons:  “do not ask the price I pay, I must live with my quiet rage, tame the ghosts in my head, that run wild and wish me dead…”  We never know what kind of price someone else is paying or what they are trading for their happiness… but just remember that it is probably expensive!
