Something I own: I’m grateful that we bought our house last year. Â There are always pros and cons of everything, but I had lived in an apartment for the past 8 years and I was ready to have a more permanent place that was fully ours, especially since we had a little bundle of joy on the way. Â I love our house and (mostly) everything about it. Â I’m proud that we could buy a house at this point in our life also.
Room: Â I’ve always loved my bedrooms. Â I’ve had a lot of them in my life, but they always make me feel secure, safe and comfortable. Â Not all of them have been stylish and decorated the best, but they were always “my space” especially when I was living with roommates – somewhere I could escape. Â Now I still love my bedroom and my bed!
A Choice: Â In 2010, I made the decision to pack up all my stuff, take a hiatus from the “adult” world and travel to Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand with just a backpack and the world ahead of me. Â In a long, twisted story, this is how my husband and I started really dating and eventually got married. Â I really wanted to know how other cultures lived, push myself out of my comfort zone, and find myself and I feel like I accomplished all three things. Â Sure, it didn’t come without consequences though. Â I pushed my professional life on the back burner, but I’m happy I did it still.
Book: One of the best books that actually spoke to me was “The Purpose-Driven Life” by Rick Warren. Â It really puts things into perspective and focuses on the big things in life that matter instead of getting caught up in the insignificant things.
What choice/room/book/something you own are you thankful for!?
