Five minutes ago I was laying in bed ready to sleep, then I read something on Facebook that made me want to blog. It has been awhile since I have been here and I am so ready to get back.
Our lives have been through ups & downs over the last few months, with health issues, questioning life decisions, and just enjoying our little man. I can honestly say that right now I am content with where we are. We moved here for Michael to attend college and although our hearts aren’t 100% in it we know we have a purpose here and an opportunity we can’t pass up. Michael is going to attend school and get a job he wants to do everyday, and hopefully someday I can stay home with our kids. So for now we are here and need to make peace with it.
I think sometimes we look at our lives and spend way too much time wondering why we are doing something, how we got to where we are, or where our life went when we weren’t looking. I could sit down everyday and point out what I don’t like about our lives right now or I could embrace what I love. I don’t have a perfect life but I have been given a life to live and no matter how many wrong turns I take I know I have the same end result. I have stopped paying attention to the things that don’t matter and tried to make decisions that benefit our lives.
I think it is important to realize that you do only have one life and it can be taken from you much too soon. Make decisions that have a positive influence on you and leave an impact on those around you. Learn to be happy with what you have because even if one part of your day/life sucks there are plenty of reasons to be thankful for simple things. Don’t focus on the big picture because you might not have time to finish the painting.
