A DIY Review

Pin It
I love all things DIY and I felt the need to go back and take a look at all the diy I've accomplished in the past couple of years. It did my heart good to see how productive I used to be and inspires me to keep plugging away and trying new things. I hope you feel inspired too!

Learning to be content

Pin It

Sometimes I amaze myself. Sometimes I am disappointed in myself. Yet sometimes, I am status quo with myself. But at all times, I have learned to say thanks. Thanks to God for allowing this life.

Many would say it's a little life and yeah, it probably is. But it's my life and I love it!

Over the years, I have learned to be content. Now this did not come naturally, I had to fight long and hard and go through many trials to get to that place. I'm sure that much of it could be contributed to age but much of it has been due to the many trials and down times that I have encountered.

God has such a sense of humor because oftentimes, when I feel like I have 'arrived' and am at a new level of refinement, another trials comes my way. But much like the roller coasters I have ridden, over the years I am more content riding the smaller coasters that have less drastic ups and downs. Which is a great reflection of how I coast through life. I am finding that as the years fly by and the trials come and go, I am less likely to have the drastic highs and lows but tend to coast along with only a few bumps in the track.

Maybe it's because I am learning. Yup, learning to be content.
