Quote of the day "if you sit still and listen, you will find all the answers you are looking for because life is simple".
So many of us try and live by this. So many of us think that we have life all figured out and balanced. But there are so many moments that you are off balance. Moments like being at work and thinking about all that needs to be done at home, or being home and thinking about all you need to get done for work. Moments where you are your worst critic and enemy and if you could quiet the doubts in your mind, all would be well. Moments when you can't stop thinking about the little family that you have created for yourself and wondering if you're giving them enough (because you feel them giving you the world) and you just hope that they realize how much they mean to you. How much of the reason you get up everyday is for them.
I would never trade a moment of my life. I am so appreciative of all the opportunities I have been given and I love every moment of my crazy day. Cory and I have a routine that works and Anna is thriving and loving her world. The only one that feels left out is our little Mia who still struggles with all that we have thrown at her.
I'm turning 33 next week and with a job that keeps me aching and exhausted and challenged and so grateful and a family that owns my heart and is my smile, I can't help but think that life isn't simple yet because I'm not sitting still enough. I'm not listening and I'm making it too complicated.
Here's to the quiet simple joy of life.
