For me, winter is so hard. It's harder to be outside. It's harder to travel. It's harder to put pants on (let's be real, we're all living in sweatpants right now...right guys???). It's harder to find inspiration. And to make things even more difficult, there are a billion blog posts floating around right now with titles like "How I quit my life and traveled the world indefinitely and now my life is awesome and yours still sucks". 

That crap pulls me in every time. In that moment I convince myself that I too should sell all of my possessions and just travel around with no real responsibility or cares!

That, of course, is not realistic. And when I really think about it, I don't even think I would like it! I like my home. I love my friends and community and (gasp) stuff. I LIKE MY LIFE!

But it is easy to get discontent and buy into the lie that if I just did/had _________ my life would be GREAT! 

I am in charge of my own happiness! ME! And I've chosen to be happy with the life I have. When you can make it to that point, the world is so much more beautiful and you can truly enjoy every new adventure that comes with each day!

This mini sermon was mostly for myself but I hope you're choosing to be happy in this season. It's not easy sometimes ( but practice makes perfect and it's so worth it!

Enjoy your weekend friends! Adventure awaits!
