Reflecting on some things
Here lately I have been wanting more and better things that what I currently have. I complain that my condo is too small and I can't wait for D and I to buy our dream 5 bedroom,, 3.5 bath suburban home. I complain about the work I do now and how I can't wait to get my teacher certification and license so I can switch careers. I complain about the wedding planning process and how I just can't wait to be married. There is a big problem with this mind set: I will never be happy with what I currently have for wanting the next big thing. I just realized this today. I need to be more mindful of the moment. I can be a much happier person if I choose to be. I can enjoy my current home. I can have fun and memorable experiences from the wedding planning process. I can grow my professional skills and make connections at my current job. Sure, every day will not be a happy one but there can still be happy moments in each day. I can take the lemons that I think life is handing me and make lemonade. I am blessed beyond measure. I have a warm home that I am able to pay the mortgage on. I have a job that, for the time being, is secure. I have wonderful parents and fabulous friends. I have a man that knows I am a crazy but yet still wants to marry me :-) So, I challenge anyone else who happens to read my humble little blog to live in the moment, no matter what that moment is.
Hello! This little corner of the internet is just a random collection of my thoughts, things that interest me, products I am trying out and random snapshots of my life. I am a 30-something year old wife, mother, friend and overall awesome person. Let me know you were here!
