I love when Paul writes in Philippians 4:13 “I have learned to be content”. This isn’t a quality anyone is born with. We have to teach ourselves to be content in every situation, it is something that has to be learned. We can create our own happiness and stop waiting for life but enjoy the moments of now.
I love fairy tales and happily ever afters. In my life I have learned we can have that fairytale today! We can create our own fairytales and we are in control of our own happiness. We don’t have to wait for the perfect job or home or relationship to see the good in today.
I know life is full of hardships, and there are seasons of struggle and strife. Of course. But there is always the sky dancing with color at the sunset. There are moments of such sweetness and joy if we pause and look for them.
I am trying to learn contentment. To not scroll through Instagram looking for the perfect outfit, the amazing designed home, or the next best thing. My life and family are right in front of me and I can create my hearts deepest longings if I submit them to the Lord and pursue my greatest desires.
I encourage you friends to create your own fairy tale. Follow your dreams and be content in how special, unique, and wonderful you are.
