Alright, so I finally did something I had planned to for years. As superficial as it sounds, I went tanning! I really had never gone before. But I'm getting tired of all my tan lines and we are going to the beach next week for vacation. So Garr kept pushing me to go try it. (I do love having a husband who doesn't mind (actually likes!) if I do things for me!) The lady gave me a tour and offered me a free session today since I've never tanned before. She put me in the lightest (read: cheapest) tanning bed and only set it for 10 min. It was a bit scary to pull the top of the bed down and "shut" myself in there. But after about 6 minutes, I started to relax and enjoy myself. I even sang along a little with "Pretty Woman" on the radio. Well, I'm not enjoying myself tonight! I'm burned!! The price we pay to be beautiful! Ouch!
I'm trying to find the right balance in life. I'm attempting to be a great mom, wife, daughter, Christian, friend, teacher, and homemaker. Some days are better than others. I'm learning it's ok to not be perfect. I'm learning to be content in all circumstances. I'm learning to take better care of myself so I can take better care of my family. I'm learning to enjoy the little moments in life instead of always focusing on what's ahead. I'm learning to embrace the now.
