find joy today

How many days do we spend thinking "I'll be truly happy when" ...
when I'm finished with school next year
when I fall in love
when I get married
when I have kids

There will always be a more "ideal" circumstance, but there are so many things to be thankful for today!  I know I often find my self thinking those what if's and if only's, but if that is all we fill our days with we will find that they are pretty empty.  But instead, if we focus on the blessings and opportunities in the here and now, we can learn not only to be content in this life, but find real joy in every day.  That is my goal.  Will you join me?
