Thankful

11 Oct

It’s really easy to want what you don’t have.

When you spend your life wishing for or wanting things, you fail to see the blessings that are already in your life.

At times, I lament where I’m at in my career. It’s not ideal. But I’ve realized how blessed I truly am. I have a husband that loves me and takes care of me. I have family and friends that have always been there for me and supported me. I have a solid roof over my head and money in my savings account.

I need to focus less on the things I think I need and focus more on the things I already have. For those things, those relationships, that unconditional love…

I am thankful.

    isn't it beautiful when you finally get to that point? it always seems easier to think of what we need and want than the amazing things we already have in the palms of our hands. 🙂
