2015: Becoming Content

03 January 2015

a few weeks before Christmas, there was a lesson i listened to at church, and its been in the back of my mind for a while. this was the image on the chalkboard when i walked into the room (okay similar, this is my rendition..hah):


the lesson topic? on perspective and being content.

is it just me or does it sometimes feel like the grass is always greener on the other side? too clichè or too true? with what seems like a billion social media outlets and ways to share what's going on in a person's life, i have found myself comparing a lot lately, when scrolling through my feeds. and i hate it. it doesn't make me feel good, or happy, or want to grow. and that's not okay!


my word of the year? content.



i actually loved following Kilee's growth with it last year, and sort of made it my own at the time. however, this year i am declaring it. that makes it official right? i'm going to strive every day to be content with where i am at in life. savor the messy moments, and learn to be happy in my now!

  1. I love this. It's so easy to compare ourselves and it does us no good. I'm right there with you! What a great idea.
