Lately I have been feeling very appreciative of the life I live. Where I am now compared to where I was a few years ago. I lacked motive. I lacked direction. I'm a mother now. I have a family. Things aren't as simple as they once were. I cannot sleep all day even if I had a chance to. There are days where I look around and I feel so full of joy. I can sit and watch my son play with his dad or we can all be in bed watching a movie before bed and it is the best feeling.
You know when people say take a step back and learn to appreciate the things you have and focus on that rather than on all the things you do not have. Well, I can finally say that is an amazing saying. I've been making time each day even if I'm beyond stressed out, especially if I am feeling stressed out, to slow down and look around and really appreciate everything that we have. It truly helps and it makes me feel so good about where we are as a family.
