The above image says it all: I love coffee. I CrossFit. I take naps.
I really have nothing to complain about in this world and about my life.
My husband works hard and pays the bills.
I work to pay for my CrossFit and kids’ activities.
I have the freedom to do what I want when I want (for the most part) since my job is mostly online.
If I want to go for a run, I do.
If I want to go for coffee, I do.
If I need to eat, I eat. If I need a break, I do laundry. If I want to read a book, I do.
I’m free to pick up the kids and run them wherever they need to be.
Occasionally, I do get a nap.
And I have God.
I lead a great life.
Sure, we could have more money in the bank. More money for retirement. I could have more of an idea how I want to spend the next 20 years. I could have a cleaner house (I spend too much time CrossFitting it seems). I could be earning more money since I have a master’s degree in Finance.
But I chose not to work on the weekends. Not to put my kids in daycare when they were babies and work a full-time job. Not to follow the crowd.
So I have no complaints.
None of us do if we live in the developed world. In the modern world really (toilets, anyone?)
Life is good, and I just need to remember that when the stupid little things in life threaten to change my mindset.
