I think we all wish that we can add wonderful things into our life without the cost of having to change things.

I know I wish for that.

But I have come to believe that rarely things come for free.

Some friends of ours just announced that they are pregnant today, and we are sincerely overjoyed for them.  But I couldn’t help but think as to how much their lives are going to change with a baby.  Of course, the budget crunches, the home improvements, the lifestyle changes are going to be worth it to hold a brand new life in their arms.  So worth it!!!

How often do we look at the sacrifices we have to make in order to obtain something positive, and then get stuck on the sacrifices.

Do we get stuck thinking about what something will cost, what we will have to give up, or what will change in order to obtain something we really want?

What is holding you back?

Somethings are JUST WORTH IT! No matter the cost.  

Is it worth focusing on something that is holding you back and risking something that will totally rock your world?


About Katie Matheny

I am a teacher by day, and a wanna-be chef by night. I teach art and Spanish at a small school in Salem, Oregon to a fantastic group of soon-to-be world changers. I've loved cooking since I was a kid, and day dreamed while reading Betty Crocker's giant cookbooks. They were my picture books! I also work with a local non-profit that is doing some amazing things in Haiti. I have an amazing husband who I love to pieces. I love and serve Jesus, my King, and am striving to be a better example of who He is in myself. This is my life, in a few short words every-so-often. I hope you enjoy.
