Have you ever noticed that virtually everyone on Facebook leads a totally awesome life? Between that new promotion at work, completing a 26-mile marathon, having dinner out on the town with the most amazing person in the world or ditching a dead-end job, it can seem at times that everyone lives a fairy tale life.
