When we dream of growing up, getting married and living on our own, we all want the better things in life. I remember those dreams from when I was younger, and I’m watching the kids struggle with them now as they start their adult lives. We want fulfilling jobs, happy relationships, time for ourselves, etc. The reality of what life throws at us doesn’t always match our dreams. This post is sponsored by FX Networks and Better Things, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
We All Want the Better Things in Life
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed in life. There are so many things you have to juggle including family, work, friends, parents, etc. I feel overwhelmed regularly even with a very supportive husband. It’s hard not to feel like you should be the perfect wife or parent. We compare ourselves to our friends, neighbors and even Pinterest and that results in a lot of stress.
There is a new television program that premiered on September 8th called Better Things. Sam Fox is an actress, who is also a single mother raising three teenage daughters. She’s also helping to care for her mom who lives across the street. The show is all about a realistic (but funny) look into what motherhood is really about – from juggling priorities to how hard it is to find time for yourself. This show could really be a page out of any busy mom’s life.
Make sure that you tune in every Thursday at 10PM EST on FX to watch #BetterThings.
