Being Content

29 Nov

We can always be better.

Always be richer, more popular, smarter, more skinny, more successful.

I feel like I am always waiting for the next step.  If _____ happens then I will really be living.  Or when _____ changes then I will be happier or things will just make sense then.

But I need to realize now, that I need to stop pining for the future and be content in the now that is going on all around me.

I need to appreciate, my kids, appreciate my husband, appreciate my life.  I want to be content in today and not be looking into what the future holds.

    I’m following you wherever you go-I added my tutorial on Canning Jalapeno Pepper Jelly over at WWDIA. But now, I am with you. Your readers will be my readers and your blog will be…will it won’t be my blog….but I’ll like it as if it was my blog. Sorry to see the link parties over at Women Who Do it All, but I understand it’s a lot of work!
    Good luck with the new blog!
