On Contentment


She's kind of the cutest, non? Little Winnie doesn't appear much on the blog, but there's always a few good Instagram's of her. And her tail is something to behold! We're convinced she's got some Maine Coon in her.

This week was good - back into regular blogging, finishing up some blog designs, prepping some posts for next week (trying to limit the amount of procrastination I do :) ), and dreaming of new ideas.

There's been a certain word/mood/feeling floating around the internet lately - contentment. Some days I am really content where I am, and others not so much. I know I'm not alone in it (see here, here and here), but it is a struggle for me. And it goes hand in hand with  the green-eyed meanie over in the corner - jealousy. It's not even a nice word to type, and it brings with it so much nastiness.

I don't think it's something that happens overnight - in fact, I know it's not. To be content takes work, but it's work I want to put in because to not be content when you have so much to be content with is an awful feeling.

So, that's where I am. Imperfectly human, asking & praying for guidance, hopefully learning what it truly means to be content in every situation.

Where are you at these days?
