There is a quiet beauty to one who has contentment. I don’t think I fully realized that before. As much as I love my home and family, I always felt I needed to add to or embellish the simple to make “unique”, “special” and “memorable”. Is it wrong to take pride in work, friendships, social media presence or perfect house decor? Not entirely, but the last few weeks, and I’m sure the weeks to come, are proving to be challenging as much of my “unique” is stripped to the “simple”…and it is not a completely bad thing. Finding contentment is my goal this week. Enjoy some simple spring touches…the season of change and rebirth.
“To be content doesn’t mean you don’t desire more, it means you’re thankful for what you have and patient for what’s to come.” Tony Gaskins
