“do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” -etsy via wanelo via pinterest (as far as i can tell!)
this advice fits my life on many levels. because i’m a perfectionist, i tend to focus on what i don’t have or what isn’t “right” instead of being grateful for the incredible life i live.
today i am going to celebrate things i once only hoped for and now have!
- the necklace i’m wearing
- a blue-black blazer (i’m still not sure which color it is…)
- being married to troy
- not one but TWO small groups that we get to do life with and who love us in spite of our messiness
- my precious puppy magnum
- a house to live in, welcome people, and decorate with my crafty projects
