Enjoy life

I think that no matter which season we are in... we can sometimes lose our joy when we become to focused on the future.

If you are single you {impatiently} wait for the day when you are married.
When you get married you long for the day when you have a baby.
You might have a job but you work even harder to get to the next level.
You are enrolled in school but day dream of when you will finally graduate.

I am sure we have all done it at some point in our lives - I know I have.

During this month of thankfullness (and reading the #Shereadstruth devotion on thankfulness) it has really been making me think more about all the blessings I have.

I don't think life will EVER be perfect, there will always be room for some sort of improvement. And I don't think it is bad to hope and be excited for your future (I am BEYOND excited for the day I will be a mother) but remember to stop and enjoy this day, at this hour, at this moment that the Lord has given us. We have so many reasons to smile.

If life isn't EXACTLY how you pictured it... know that I am praying that God will reveal all the beauty that surrounds you. Joy will ALWAYS come in the morning, lovely.

Enjoying life at this moment and love. -Monica

I know exactly what you mean... I can't wait to have a career, but I know once I do then I won't be able to wait til I can afford to be a SAHM again lol

oh if we truly knew what it meant to be content and thankful!

SUCH a good post. I struggle with always looking forward to the next big thing, instead of just finding joy in the moment. Thanks for sharing!

This is such a great reminder! It is so easy to get caught up in dreaming of the future instead of enjoying the present. I have to check myself on this.
