I don't know, but sometimes in life, I feel like I'm always fretting over something or there is just something going on that makes life so it isn't 100% perfect. Like, I'm always living in the future...waiting for this, preparing for that, wish this or wish that...does that make any sense? Life is going ok, and spirits are happy.
But maybe we always feel like we shouldn't be 100% content and happy with life. We feel like we should always be facing a trial, large or small, just something. We think life wasn't meant to be perfect so what makes it okay to be 100% happy and satisfied with life? Shouldn't we always be working at something to better ourselves and our lives? Shouldn't there always be a hurdle that we need to jump?
We all face trials and struggles all the time. Whether it's a personal struggle, family struggle, whatever the struggles may be it seems like we are always struggling with something, big or small.
I was thinking about this at the end of the day today. I sat down after I had put my boys to bed, hung out with the Young Women, got Kaden back up since he hadn't fallen asleep yet, played with him and laughed hard with him, and then put him back to bed and thought to myself
I am happy.
Life is good. There are things going on right now that could be stressing me out. There were moments today where there was whining, crying and tired babies...but today, today none of it seemed to get on my nerves. Today I didn't feel at all impatient or short with anybody. Today I saw my life, saw the people in my life and said to myself you know what,
"it's OK to be happy."
