Have you ever stopped looked around and realized that what you have now was once everything you ever wanted? It’s amazing to me to realize how many things that felt impossible just 5, 7, 10 years ago were obviously not impossible after all. Realizing this, I have stopped fretting about anything. Everything comes in it’s own time.

These are a few of the things off the top of my head I have now that felt impossible back when...

dog ✔️ (Best dog in the whole universe in my eyes + plus husband is actually opening up for another one- 5 years ago he would never have a dog . He loves our dog) 

mother in law out ✔️ (She lived with us for 5 years of which seemed like an eternity - my husband constantly put her over me- not anymore. She moved out in 2017)

masters degree✔️(Yesss, life changing)

place in the city✔️ (on a freaking gorgeous tree lined street. The neighborhood rated #1 in the US. Absolutely quaint yet bustling. It is everything i wanted in a place... I dreamed of this 10 years ago)

husband more spiritual, less controlling ✔️ (Even more than I expected, dynamics shifted, we both have equal power now. 5 years ago I thought he’d never change)

career✔️ (God my self-worth used to be so low because I could not hold a good job)

oh and friendssss✔️ (All I wanted was a friend circle for the longest)

I could go on but those are some of the big ones and there are more dreams that are in the process of manifesting currently. 

I didn’t get everything though.The biggest dream I had was to have more children and it didn’t happen. That’s okay with me now. You can’t have everything. I can even see it as a blessing. I don’t have much of a desire for children any longer.)

 

Can you look around you and see how many things you made happen that you once thought we’re impossible? 

Obviosuly Jupiter is strong in my chart, LOL

To add.. can’t edit...

Yesterday someone, a doctor, told me I was blessed.

I asked why and she said, “I wish I had done it like you.”

I said “what?”

She said, “I’m 42 and my youngest child is 4. I have 4 kids and I don’t even have time to see them. You are blessed.” 

It’s weird to me because on the surface you’d see her as blessed, or I would... doctor... four kids... doesn’t that sound like it would be everything.  Money and children. Money to spend on your children... 

This just made me consider that perhaps I am blessed to not have more children. It’s all about perspective I guess. We’re all blessed guys, we really are, and if we’re not, all it simply takes is a shift in perspective.

Absolutely true, too many blessings to count.  I thank God for them every day.
