31 days: being content

Being content is something I struggle with.

I want it all, and I want it all now.

When i say "all" I mean happiness and success.

I want to feel like I am making a difference and am successful.

I have this problem with comparing myself to others.



Yesterday I attended a very cool event at George Mason University for Joining Forces {more on that later}. While I was so excited to be at the event I couldn't help be hearing others around me discussing things relating to their jobs and feeling a bit jealous.

I felt myself starting to feel in adequate because I currently do not have a job. Last July we made the decision for me to stop working until we got to our next duty station. Scott and I wanted to focus on our family and I wanted to take some time for myself.

It was a decision that I do not regret. I have learned so much in the last year, but now I am ready for the next step. We thought the next step was to start a family but I think God has other plans for us. In the few short weeks we have living in Virginia so many doors have opened and continue to open or me.

I need to stop comparing myself to others. I need to focus on what is best for me, and my little family.

I need to be content with where I am in my life and know that everything will happen when God is ready.
