Being Happy Where You Are Right Now!

Be Happy

Recently I have been thinking about the concept of happiness. I feel that we often base our happiness on other people and what we think we should have in our life right now. This can cause so much unhappiness because we are all unique people on different paths in our life. We can not possibly have everything that everyone else has at this exact moment in our life. 
 

I have been struggling to conceive for 4 years now. At times I have been so calm about it and really relaxed and at other times I have entered a moment of panic, at the thought that I may never have this opportunity that so many other couples have. Something that as a woman I feel I should have. This pressure  comes from society, nature and of course ourselves. Somethings in life can be achieved through hard work, dedication, money ect. However somethings and in this case I am talking about conceiving, are not always possible. This fact does not make it any easier though and we continue to desire what we want inside and what other people have. 

 
This thought about happiness hit me when I was telling someone that I was really enjoying cooking at the moment. They replied with I wish I had more time to cook. I was thinking I wish I was pregnant.
I found out that my uterus lining was very thick and would need to be thinner to conceive. So I have been getting into cooking, so I can eat better and eat a cleaner diet. This is where I am in my life right now. I could be depressed and angry at the fact that I am not getting pregnant. Instead I have decided to take more action. 
 
I feel that it is important to appreciate where you are and even if you can't appreciate it, because of how difficult the situation is, it is important to focus on where you are and yes by all means look forward to better times ahead. 
 
I was telling someone else about a holiday I'd been on, and they said that they were jealous that I could go on holiday and said they couldn't wait until their children were older so they could also travel more. This is another example of how people compare their lives to others. I am simply enjoying where I am right now, I of course look forward to a family with my husband. I hope it comes soon. In the meantime I must enjoy where I am. I would also hope when I have children that I would appreciate that moment. 

I hope we can all try a little harder to appreciate where we are right now in our lives. Each situation in life comes with it's own struggles. On the other hand there is also so much to be glad about. I want to have children of my own so badly. The pain is so hard at times. I also have so much to be happy about though. I have the most wonderful husband who loves me and does not pressure me at all. He stands by me through everything. I am happy to have him by my side. We are currently planning a mini trip around Europe. This is just one of the many things that we can appreciate right now.
