Have you ever noticed how often people complain? They complain about their jobs, then they complain about NOT having a job. They complain about the weather, no matter if it is cold or hot. First they want the weather to be warmer, then they wish it were cooler. Some even complain about the friends they have, yet still continue to run around with them. With all this complaining, who could possibly be happy?!!
Contentment is something I strive on. I am not perfect at it, nor ever will be. I do complain from time to time, however, I shortly realize that what I am complaining about is either senseless or something that I could change if I wanted to. Being content means being happy! If a person is content with their lives, or anything in their lives for that matter, then they are happy. When a person is happy - they have nothing to complain about. Without anything to complain about - there is no frustration. No frustration - No stress! It is a simple maped out plan that follows itself into place.
There will always be something you are not happy about. There will always be someone who doesn't like you, or makes you uncomfortable, or angry. There will always be something to complain about in this world. However, doesn't mean you have to do so. Be content! Be happy! Be stress-free! Change what you don't like. If you can't change it, learn to live with it. Don't allow the complaints to take away the life that was inteneded for you.

I can honestly say that no one has ever called me "normal"! That is just fine with me! God created me to stand out, be different, be weird, and not blend in with the world.
There are definately many personalities floating around in my mind. This makes for quite an interesting day with me! It is "Grand Central Station" up there! I have even 'named them'! (Don't send in the troops just yet)
The great thing about having such diversity is that there is never a dull moment with me! I always make sure that heading up this little party in my mind is the Lord God Himself!
God has shown me how to embrace the 'fun' inside me and use it to better His Kingdom! I have found that I don't have to be a 'stick in the mud' to be a Christian. I am a child of God! I am a Chrsitian! I am a follower of Christ! I AM HIS! Every day I am working toward becoming a better Disciple! I will NEVER be perfect - but I am SAVED; so that is all that matters!!
