I've been so busy lately. If it's not work, it's Junior League, or wedding stuff for my friend or decorating the house or wondering where the F my furniture is or picking out paint colors or cleaning the house...It seems like it's always something.
Sometimes I feel like I get so caught up in life that I forget the things that are most important.
At work I've been so swamped. The guy I work with was supposed to put together our special section that was due on Wednesday this week. When I opened the document, NOTHING had been done. He hadn't even prepared to start putting it together. So, in true Stevy fashion, I took it over. And got stuck doing most everything. This made for a very busy week. We had a redesign of one my pages. It looks amazing but it's a lot more work for me. However, I don't really mind because I'm really proud of the page and I think it's really useful to the readers. However, it's due on Friday. Someone submitted their own story a week ago and after having all that time to sit on it, my bosses decided yesterday that I could do a better job of writing it. While I'm flatter, because I am, the page is due today.
So I wallow in this rather than in the fact that I am absolutely grateful to have a job. And not only that, a job that I honestly enjoy. I really like my job. Granted, it isn't my dream job and it's not what I want to do, it's a secure job that I enjoy going to in the mornings.
I think so much about what is wrong with my house, the floors in the office are disgusting, the wallpaper is atrocious, my kitchen countertops are ugly, it's way too much house to clean and everything is gold rather than be excited about the fact that I just bought my first house. It's gorgeous and huge.
I struggle with the fact that my husband is always studying rather than focus on the fact that at least he is pushing forward in his career and he's not out partying with his friends but he's trying to make our lives better.
There are days when I wake up and feel like I'm so blessed and so grateful for what I have that I can't hardly take it. Then there are days when I wake up and realize how selfish I can be. So today, I'm choosing to be grateful. I'm choosing to focus on the fact that I'm blessed to have a job I enjoy; I'm blessed to have an amazing husband; I'm blessed to not only have a home, but a beautiful home; and I'm blessed to have the most amazing people in my life (minus the guy I work with :) ).
Since I don't believe in lucky....what makes you feel blessed?
Have a wonderful weekend ladies! I'll be working out and painting with my husband.
