While there will always be something you want that you do not have at this very moment, this moment in time is not imperfect. Perfection is not having everything you could ever want. Perfection is being perfectly happy with where you are now. It is my wish for you that you are happy with where you are now or at the very least be at peace with where you are.

Right now – I don’t feel like doing anything. I typically have a very non-stressful workplace, but we are down one for a while and it’s been CRAZY! Although I do feel more energized and awake during the day [because I have to be] it’s killing me at night. [I should note: it’s only been two days. I am such a little wimp! !]
It’s like this - Get home, make supper, eat supper, do dishes, time to chill… and oh, it’s time for bed. No time to go for a walk, no time to read, no time to have a cup of tea. Ahhhhh!!!! I don’t understand how so many people out there are all…go, go, and go. I am NOT good at being a busy person. I need me time, I need teatime, I need slow time and I need silent time. I need breaks in between events, need time to clean up; I need time to refresh and regroup. Listen to me! Losing my mind here!
But now, I feel good! I just had to get all that out. It’s truly been a really busy couple of weeks and it just seems like lately time is flying by and we’re too busy to enjoy it; and that, my friends, it horrible!
How can we be too busy to enjoy right now? It’s awful that we don’t take the time to organize ourselves enough to be able to really enjoy every minute of the day. How many of us wish that there were more hours to each day? Just that little bit of extra time that we could spend snuggling with our hunny, playing catch with our dog or chatting on the phone with a sibling. I sure do! Thus, the quote above is so very true. We can spend all our time wishing the minutes that we do have away, or we can remind ourselves of what we did accomplish in the run of our day. Stop and take note of the moments that are making us laugh, really taste the fresh brewed cup of morning java, hug our hunny’s for just a second longer and be appreciative of all the simple stuff and thankful for the roof over our heads and the family’s that love us.
Now, I AM going to do something for me - Have a cup of tea and think about why I am happy with where I am now.

I am perfectly happy where I am now because:
· I am in love and married to my best friend. He makes me laugh every single day, he makes sure that I know I’m loved, he cooks me the most amazing meals and bakes the BEST CAKEs in town!
· I have a lovely, cozy, adorable home.
· I’ve created my own awesome little library in my living room.
· I have a sweet little doglet with a very cool name.
· My Mom and Dad practically live next door.
· My whole Carson clan is coming over tomorrow night for my Mom’s BIRFDAY dinner!

· I have some really amazing, thoughtful, creative, beautiful, smart, funny, crazy, people as friends.
· I belong to a book club called ReadingBetweenTheWines.

· I have dreams.
· I have goals.
· I will admit that I am kind of a huge fan of the simple, silly, random stuff in life. That’s a really great thing.

· I think I have some really great in-laws. Like, I lucked out big-time!!
· My house is a 2-minute walk from a really nice trail.
· Canada is a really incredible country and I live here.
