I am sitting in my kitchen, pinning decor inspiration. My dog is at my feet, chewing away at a bone that is supposed to keep her busy for hours but it will only last ten minutes, The kitchen is re-arranged and reorganized, and there are two cute containers on my counter with pet food - one for Simon and one for Else. Jake is in the living room, and I am listening to the ping-ping-ping-RING of his fantasy football draft. A coconut candle is attempting to mask the cleaning smell that has taken over the tiny room.
I spend so much time thinking about what my perfect life looks like - career, house, life experiences, marriage, children. It is not that hard to take these moments to appreciate everything I have.. but I don’t do it enough. While I of course am dreading tomorrow and this work week, and am not doing what I want to be doing in my career.. there are still so many things in my life to be content and happy with.
I don’t know the exact quote.. but I guess happiness is wanting what you have.
