Learning To Be Content

"We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." -- Marjorie Pay Hinckley

That last sentence especially speaks to me. Isn't that huge? To learn to be content with what you are, where you are, what point you're at in your eternal progress?

I agree with you on the last line. It is crucial but not always east!

Congratulations to you! I love Duncans and babies.

It is a good quote -- food for thought.

I love it! That is something I struggle with. I have to stop saying yes to everyone all the time. Thank you for posting it!
Love you!
