Life Gets in the Way

I have great intentions. In my relationship, in my friendships, when it comes to our house, this blog...everything. But I've also noticed that most of those great intentions never come to fruition. There never seems to be enough time. And when there is time to get something done, all the mundane everyday tasks have to be taken care of, and the things I really, really want to do get pushed to the side. Life just gets in the way.

I want to spend more time with Arsen, like good, quality time. I want to call my best friends on a regular basis to catch up on their lives. I want to keep the house spotless. Not just "eh, it's clean enough" clean, but really, really clean. I want to fix up all the things around here that I've been planning to fix. I want to be able to spend as much time on the blog as I can, making what I really want it to be. And I want to be able to go for a run every night. Just a quick jog around the neighborhood would work really.

But, what I've come to realize is that there will never be enough time. We are gone from 7 am to 6 pm every night, and many nights we don't get home until almost 7. That gives me 3 or 4 hours a night to do all of the things above. Pretty impossible. So I've decided something.

I'm going to appreciate every free minute that I have. I'm going to make a point to do something that I enjoy every single day. If the dishes sit in the sink overnight, or the laundry piles up a little bit, I'm not going to worry about it. Life is too short.

What I'm going to worry about is spending good, quality time with my husband (and my baby dog). Taking time to catch up with the people I love. Doing the things that make me happy. Of course the chores have to be done, the house has to stay clean, I have to go to work and all of that. But I'm going to make an effort to truly treasure each moment. Life is such a gift, and such a short one at that. I want to take a moment every day to appreciate and be thankful for how blessed I am. Because I really, truly am.

My Biggest Blessings


  1. I have been feeling the same way lately! There really are never enough hours in the day-especially when it comes to doing things we actually enjoy it seems like. I almost forget what I actually like doing aside from everything I "have" to do lol Great post!!

    1. I always heard that time flies when you get older, and I'm starting to believe it. I swear there used to be more hours in the day! Thanks for stopping by my little blog! Headed over to check yours out :)

  2. It's hard not to feel constantly behind when there's so much to do! But it's so true, the most important things in life are spending quality time with the people in our life. Such a sweet blog, I'll be following :)
