My friend Lyndsey is guesting today. This past year we’ve both spent time on bedrest and both welcomed our first little ones into our family. Lyndsey has a great perspective I think we can all take something from, I know I did after reading her post.
Living Life in the Fast Lane
A few weeks ago Andrew and I were discussing this year, and how he has now been in business a full year. I’m so proud of him and it is going quite well. He works so hard and even when it seems like “keeping up with the Joneses” is the thing to do, we will remain in our modest and cute home for another few years. He told me that he is thankful we have a beautiful home and nice things. He went on to say that so many people are not happy with what they have and they always want bigger and better. I must say, I am guilty of wanting bigger and better most of the time. I have a real knack for picking out and wanting the most expensive things-just ask my dad! This past year however, I believe I have really learned about what it means to be truly happy with what you have. I feel so blessed for my beautiful and healthy daughter, and that we have a home filled with love. The size of our home and the “things” we have inside, don’t make us a happy, loving family. It is US that make our family and lives filled with so much happiness. I’m so thankful for the success that my husband has had so far, and he is so happy everyday when he comes home from work. We had to take a step back to move forward in our lives. That step back was more than just a financial step back. I learned so much more about what happiness truly means. It goes so much deeper than the material things. My baby girl is here and healthy, my husband is enjoying his dream job, and I am a mom. That is SUCCESS! It doesn’t get better than that!
