If This Isn't Nice, I Don't Know What Is

Just a quick quote for everyone's weekend! This quote really hit home when I saw it this week. In the last General Conference, there were a few speakers who mentioned the idea of being happy right now. Don't wait to be happy in the future, be happy with where you are and what you have right now.

I have been thinking about this a lot in the past week. Unfortunately, I catch myself thinking things like "I can't wait for Chad to be done with school" or "Once Geddy can walk, I will have so much more freedom" (which is so not true). I have a nasty habit of thinking "Once this happens, everything will be perfect". But truthfully, once that amazing thing actually happens, there will be other trials occurring at that time.

Therefore, I am making a very special effort to be happy TODAY. Cherish every moment with Geddy. He is only this age once and he is growing so incredibly fast. I am so fortunate to be able to stay home with him and that makes me truly, genuinely, happy.  Also, Chad going to school is an incredible opportunity and I should cherish these days where I only have a small apartment to clean (don't have to worry about multiple bathrooms or a yard!) and its just the three of us, we are young and have our first child together (and the pup of course!). These are special times that we will always remember and I am happy, I exclaim that I am so very happy.

Happy Saturday!

I love this quote. Being happy NOW is something I'm constantly trying to train myself to do. Life is so good and hard and wonderful and challenging in each stage. I find that writing a few specific items of gratitude in my journal every day help me to bask in the goodness and be happy TODAY.
