Garner Family

I took these pictures almost a year ago and just realized I haven't shared them yet! Can you believe this is what their backyard looks like?

Be Content.

I am easily overwhelmed.


Work.School.Church.Home.



I look around and it seems as though everyone's lives are busy - but they handle it so much better than I do. They still get their to-do lists checked. They school, work, mother, clean, cook... they make it all seem so easy.



Sometimes it makes me feel like I am capable of less. Like I can't do what they can.
I spend a lot of time thinking about this - thinking about how I wish I could do more. How I wish I could get everything done.


Well, I've decided that's ending. It's time for me to learn to be content with who I am. To be proud of the things I do accomplish rather than dwell on all of the things left un-done. To stop trying to prove something, taking on too much and ending up overwhelmed and disheartened.



2011 is the year to be content.


It doesn't mean I will stop trying to be better, or settle for what I am now without the desire to grow. It means I'm going to prioritize the things that need to get done and not worry so much about the rest. It means I'm going to be satisfied with what I accomplish and happy with who I am.


2011 is the year I'm finding my happy place.


"We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have
to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is
comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying
to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we
are."

Disneyland

Yes, I'm obsessed. Yes, I could go over and over and still be entertained. Yes, my dream came true when we bought annual passes in October (we've already been twice)
