tee, sweater, skirt, shoes, belt: thrifted
I think the biggest goal I have right now is to be content. Content with the weather, my clothes, my hair, my life. I think so much of our life's time is wishing it away. Saying things like "I'll be happy when I'm done with school" or "Why can't Spring just get here?" Sure, I'm not a huge fan of winter, but it serves it place in the seasons. I love how pretty it makes the ground after it snows. Or how quiet it is when it falls from the sky. But we all seem to be wishing for Spring to arrive. But when Spring gets here, are we just going to be wishing for Summer? And then Summer will get too warm and we'll be wishing it away for Fall.
I'm at a stage in my life where I just want contentment. I want to be at peace at whatever phase of life I may be in. I definitely want to get my degree, but I want to cherish the time that I'm in school. So many of us just rush through this life to get to the next check mark. Why don't we just slow down and breath in the life that we are so blessed to have?
Rob and I don't have a lot of money. We both have school to do. We live in the little town of Shelley, Idaho that doesn't even have a WalMart. I have crazy hair. Sometimes it really bothers me, but just in the last couple of days I feel so at peace with that. Of course I wish sometimes that we made more money and that I could just get my degree and move the heck out of Idaho, but why? This life is so dang beautiful and it should be treated that way. Be content with your life. Stop wishing it away. Love the life you live.
That was some tangent now wasn't it?
