Let Go and Live

Just something to think about this Monday morning…

Over the years, I’ve had many different pictures in my mind of what I thought my life should look like.

A few of those pictures have come to be. I always wanted three children. I now have three beautiful girls.

Many of those pictures never developed however. My marriage ended in a nasty divorce instead of the happily ever after I pictured.

One thing I’ve learned: when I stop mourning what I feel like I have lost, and embrace what I have and find the joy in the moment, I discover true happiness.

It can be difficult to let go of the picture we wanted to see. Yet, if we want to really enjoy life, we have to let go of what holds us back so we can really enjoy the life we have.

  1. You are so right. It’s hard to think about our losses but so important to be grateful about the things we have ❤️

    1. Yes! It is so, so hard! But it’s definitely rewarding to look for the positive.

  2. This is so so important. Contentment is key for every aspect of life. If we always focus on what we want instead of what we have, we’ll never appreciate it. Thank you for that reminder!

        I’m sure I could think of something… but you know, it’s really not worth it. It’s far better to build someone up rather than criticize them and judge them.. etc. I’ll have you just the way you are. 🙂
