Life is about much more than money and riches. It’s about family and love. It’s about making sacrifices for much more ‘bigger’ things, like spending time together and being silly. Enjoy your life to the fullest and don’t let what you don’t have block you from enjoying what you DO have.
As I have stated previously back in Halloween, that Christmas is also a pagan Holiday. But when those christmas lights come on I can not resist. I get sucked right back in.
As much as I enjoy this holiday season I don’t get carried away with it. If I can’t get you a gift, well my friend your out of luck. If I can’t make it to that Christmas party this year your going to have to wait till next year.
You get the point right? I treat it like any other day, I may make some plans with friends and family to accommodate the festivities but I make plans to see friends and family all the time.
Oh and I also don’t feed my children that junk about Santa! I am Santa and you better tell me thank you! Hahaha!
Whatever it is for you, enjoy it! Love your family, drink, eat and be merry!
This is not my cute baby, but click on the image to go to the website that sells these adorable shirts!
This week I explored the Housewife.
Who she is and what she does.
We all have something in common, our families. Our love for them is what motivates us and brings us the greatest joys. No matter if we are in high heels or sweats we know they love us and they are grateful for the things that we do for them.
I came to this startling realization just recenlty.
We had no money, I mean nothing, zero zilch.
We needed groceries, baby supplies.
For $1.50 I got the following:
3 cans evaporated milk
Baby Formula & Bread
Yeah I said $1.50
I got such a rush from being against the wall. I was so excited to see what I can do with such little money. It was amazing and fun. It was rewarding to be successful. It was a thrill to make it out alive. With this new found understanding of myself I can embrace myself for what I am. Rather than being stuck and confused as to why I set myself for “failure”. Because I never really fail. So I don’t beat myself up anymore. I look forward to the challenge and therefore my success and enjoy the pleasure of the challange.
Life is not about being easy. I was raised to be simple, to take things slowly, to walk the path with least resistance. But I can not learn from a path already walked on. I choose to make my own path. I choose to climb, crawl, dig, scratch, my way to whatever goal I want. Why? Because it makes me feel alive. It makes me feel like I accomplished something. I give all glory to God, but is it wrong to want to be in the trenches with him? To see what he sees. Rather than seeing one set of footsteps I want to see two. I will submit myself to his mercy when needed but if I am able bodied and mind I want to walk alongside him and endure the adversities that come up. I want to see the mayhem and encourage it with a gentle nudge that I am here to welcome it and push it out of my way.
I am not speaking of drama. Or of creating some delusions of problems that don’t exist. I want to embrace life as I move forward in it. Change with the tide. Welcome the troubles so that I can seek the refuge after it.
