A Little Perspective

I found this guest post on The Wiegand's blog. Miss Ariel of A Beautiful Journey is only 21, but has such insight into life. I feel like this post has some relevance to my life as I frequently still feel like I'm 27, married, and a working gal,  who is living the life of a college student - renting a home, not yet financially ready to start a family, unable to furnish the house with our style of decor, watching pennies, no vacations (nor honeymoon). Being married to a resident whom just finished 8 years of education does not equal the glamorous life of a doctor's wife. Sacrifices have been made, and will continue to be made for the length of Dashing's career, now finances and time and later mainly time away from home. I think about the sacrifices we've made, where we are, and why it seems like everyone else is where they want to be (I know this isn't true, but it sometimes still feels like it!). Anyways, here is the post to keep things in perspective....

It can be difficult to see the things others have at our age and realize that we aren't there yet. I struggle with this and have to remind myself that we are in a different place right now and eventually I can have some of those things. The thing that sometimes gets to me the most is the desire for those "things". I wish I didn't want "things" so much, but I guess that is just our nature.
