I got to thinking that a lot of time we tend to think about all the things that we don't have instead of focusing on the things that we do. It is easy to get caught up in whatever season of life we're in and wish for something more, but it's important too, to look at the things that you can't get back after the seasons change. I would never want to go back to my single days because I love my husband more than anything. I love knowing this one person will always be on my side no matter what and knows exactly how to love me in any way I need. It is a wonderful feeling knowing that no matter what my day brings, when I go home my husband will hold me and do his best to make things better, BUT I should've enjoyed spreading out and taking up the entire queen size bed to myself ;)
Often when I was single I would wish to have someone in my life. Once I had someone in my life, I wished that we would be married. Now that we're married, I find myself thinking of babies. (Sorry Baron!!)
I guess my point is that I'm going to try to focus on the good parts of whatever season of my life I'm living in at that very moment.
When I was single for example, I should have relished in the fact that I could eat cereal and Lean Cuisine's every. single. night. if I wanted to. No one would ever steal my covers, and I could go
Now that we're married and without kiddos, I should be relishing in the 8 full hours of sleep I can be getting every night, or the fact that we can travel (easily) to lots of places, and we can be selfish and totally put ourselves first all the time.
Wherever you are in life right now, enjoy it. If you're single, married, have a newborn at home, dealing with teenagers (at least you don't have to change their diapers!), or retired, try to enjoy the things that only come with that specific season of your life. I think we would all be happier if we could do that.
That's all my couch talk for the day! Happy Thursday!
