Stop Waiting and Start Living

Driving home from school yesterday, I was thinking about this little ol' blog. I have been meaning to post since Monday but haven't seemed to find the time. Being that my goal is to be able to post about three times a week, I started thinking, I can't wait to be out of school so that I will have time to do things I really enjoy, like blogging. 

Wait, what?? After this thought, I couldn't believe that I have gotten into such a bad attitude. Honestly, I shouldn't be sitting around waiting for life to get "better".  I've written about it before, but found myself falling back into the same attitude of, "I can't wait for....."

I don't want to spend my time wishing to be done with school so I can be happy. I want to be happy with life, right now. If I think that my life is somehow going to be magically perfect when I'm done with school and that I will have all the time in the world, I'm really kidding myself. 

What really brings joy? Being content. Looking around and appreciating the things that you have and the people who surround you. 

I might not have time to blog every day. I might not have time to scrapbook as much as I want. I might not have the money to go out to eat all the time or do every activity that I want.

But what I DO have is a life absolutely full of good things-- a loving God, a wonderful husband, a supportive family, caring friends, a path to a career I am passionate about. I need to spend much more time being thankful for those things! 


What are you waiting for? Be happy!
