TAKE PRIDE IN YOUR WORK.
WE so easily forget the things we should be grateful for.
On a daily basis I try REALLY hard to remain humble and be grateful for what I have.
For gosh sakes it can be that the dishes are clean that day or that the car had enough gas or that the checking account isn't overdrawn AGAIN.
Or that we have plenty of food for our kids and our sheets are clean.
I really think people get caught up in the glitz of life sometimes and you know what, it just doesn't matter,
That pedicure you were complaining about not getting.....that's $35 dollars in groceries.
That girls trip to Vegas, that's time away from your kids.
Yes, yes everyone needs a break sometimes but on a daily basis please try to be grateful for the little things because in the end they are things that will matter the most to you
On my death bed I want to be able to say I loved my children with my whole heart and I gave them ALL I could. I want to be able content knowing I was right there by their side every step of the way guiding them.
I want to be able to say I took pride in my work and I worked HARD. I want to say I helped people, I changed their lives.
I want to dye knowing that everyday i was grateful for what I had and I worked hard to maintain a vivacious spirit.
I want to know I didn't pay someone else to raise my kids and I cleaned up after myself. I took pride in myself and my life. Paying people to fix your problems is EXTREAMLY ungratifying.
I am very much a work in progress just like the rest of us but I know my path!
