31 Days of LIfe::Presence not Perfection



The challenge is to write everyday for the month of October.  To chronicle my life, thats what this blog is about anyway.  Life tends to get in the way and get busy and distracted.  Its easy to get going 100 miles an hour and forget about being present.

This 31 days is about being present, a reminder to be present even if the circumstances aren't perfect.  

Quiet time with the Lord, just do it, it doesn't need to be at the quiet hour of the morning with coffee and a comfy chair, that would be perfect but so often I don't do things because the circumstances or perceived outcome won't be what my mind believes is perfection.  

Outings and activities with L once again so often I don't do things because I can't pave a perfect set up for whatever situation.  This is my last full month with him as an only child.  Our world is about to have some major changes and I just want to be present and cherish these last days of a family of three.  

Thats what this is about. just doing, and being regardless of if it ends up being a perfect picture.

I feel like I have let too many things become neglected because I am waiting for that perfect scenario or outcome.  I need to be present in the moment let God lead me and stop trying to plan it all, all the time.  I look foreword to where this challenge and journey lead me.

I will add each days links to this post as they go live.

Sounds like fun!!! And I agree, we get too busy and distracted sometimes.

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
