I want lots of things. Don’t we all?
I want a new bike. I want to do a triathlon. I want to run another marathon. I want, I want, I want. These are things that cost money and take up my time, and it’s just not realistic to get them all right now. And, they are just things.
It’s so hard, though, especially with social media…seeing everything everyone else is getting or doing, and knowing you have to wait. Wait because I don’t have extra money to spend. Wait because my kiddo is young and I also want to cherish time with him before he goes off to Kindergarten next year. Wait because my body won’t do what I’m asking it to.
Sometimes it’s good to remember that the real things we truly want are right in front of us if we are lucky. My son is at this wonderful age that I just love. My husband continues to be amazing. We are healthy. We are together. When I think about it, what more could I want?
Today, I am remembering to be patient. To breathe. I can have those other things if I really want them. Eventually.
