Do you ever just sit and think about life? Just sit and think. What you are doing with you life, or where it is headed? Thinking about those very important people that you surround yourself with. The things you want to happen, and the things that have happened in the past. Just day dreaming. Dreaming about the house you will have one day, your kids, or your wedding day. Maybe just scrolling through your pinterest board brings on thoughts like those.

These thoughts seem to come to me when I get bored, when I am laying in bed at night, or when I am in the shower. It’s those times when you go what’s next? Am I happy with what I am doing right now? or even the little mermaid singing “I want moreee!” They seem to sneak up on me and I get those small desires of wanting to hurry life along.

This is where God has been teaching me patience! Lots and lots of patience…and contentment. I can honestly say I love my life. I love being a college student! I am loving making new friends, and I enjoy dating. However, there is also those little thoughts that creep up about wanting to move out, get married, and start a family. It’s that feeling of wanting to grow up, and get on to the next stage of life.

I know that I enjoy where I am at now, and I have to just focus on that. I have to just stop and smell the roses. I think I have posted about this before, but it is something that I constantly have to remind myself of. To just enjoy what is going on around me. Not to try to push forward. So here’s to trying. To just enjoying life.

I do try, I do love life. Sometimes I just want to be married. Sometimes I just want what’s next. Yet, who but God knows what is next? We sure don’t. What I may believe what the next stage of life is may not be what God has next for me. That is where I just have to pray for the contentment in the moment. To just focus on the fun things going on around me.

Anyone have any advice?
