A Grateful Heart

Since moving to Austin, one of the things I've struggled with is being content with my life. I find myself more likely to focus on the negative things, instead of the positive.

I'm not entirely sure why this is, but I think it has mostly to do with loneliness. I am very much a people person and love being around others... I love having friends over, meeting people for coffee or lunch, cooking meals with friends, going out to dinner, etc. However, I am not always good at initiating these events when I'm first getting to know people.

Luckily, Andrew works with a great group of people that we have become very close with. We have also been blessed to join a bible study with 4 other newly married couples. While I'm so incredibly thankful for both of those things, it's still not quite the same as being home in Orlando with the friends I've known my whole life, or being at UGA where I got to live with some of my best friends.

Regardless, I still have so much to be grateful for, and that is what I try to remind myself everyday. I am married to the best man in the world, we are healthy and living in one of the coolest cities in the country, and I get to hang out with 2 precious kittens everyday... What more could a girl ask for? ;)

  1. I will definitely follow your blog. I'm nosey anyways so I'm all for following your blog about things happening in your life. I really hope you find a job soon, I'm stuck in the same situation with a half-a** job that barely pays my bills. It'll get better for both of us.
