"Be Happy With What You Do Have, Not What You Don’t"

I have to say when the day I started blogging, it was so exciting for me to be able to type my feelings, to say what I truly wanted to say and it just go out there on the web and know that no one was reading it.  I was able to get a few thing off my chest, and not have to worry about what others thought, it was a moment just for me.  Can you believe that day I was excited no one was reading my posts? 

I had only been blogging for a short amount of time (I started really blogging in August) before I was linked back to by a large couponing/saving blog.  I was blown away; that day my visits multiplied times six!  I was so excited but downhearted at the same time.  My blog was not exactly as I wanted and I was not able to post quite as regularly as I wanted.  I had not yet started on all the topics I wanted to post on.

Today a few months later, my blog is still unfinished and needs some work, but like all things in life I have learned you work with what you have.  “Be happy with what you do have, not with what you don’t!”  I have found myself telling my son that quite a bit lately.  If I give him a orange spoon he wants yellow, if I give him milk he wants juice….you get the picture.

I have found myself reflecting on what I am telling him.  I have very high expectations of myself; I am never quite happy with what I do as I always feel I can do better.  When I envisioned my blog I have such high expectations, but I am realizing that like everything else it takes time.  (Aside from the fact that I am just learning so much)!  I find myself torn between trying to post, fix things on my blog, spiritual things and giving my children my attention.  I have to say the more important wins, as the slow improvements on my blog.  I am still learning to balance blogging with life, (THANKS for being patient with me).

With that said, I am so happy & so greatful to have you hear reading my blog.  I can’t wait to share what I have in store so please be patient with me!  I hope that you will come back and let me know what you think, what you would like to see more or less of.  I would love the feedback!

And remember at the end of the day to “Be happy with what we do have, not what we don’t” because at the end of the day most of the things that have occupied our thoughts and worries are just a passing in the big picture of life.  Take time to be happy with the little moments as they are our precious treasures to seek out.
