#31 Days Discovery in Contentment and Simplicity

Welcome to Ren Was Here. If you're visiting for the first time. Please say hello. I love talking to my readers and if you're an "old friend" don't be shy!

I've done it. I've joined a blog challenge. It's been awhile since I've blogged consistently. This is a great challenge because I'm always thinking about my blog, but that's different then giving it the love and attention I want to.

Moving is hard. It takes a lot out of a person. Starting a new job is hard. It takes a lot out of a person. When you add the rest of life into the mix, there are many things that get left behind. I'm typing this, quite tired and exhausted from an extremely stressful week at work, but this is something that's just for me. Even if there was no one reading this, it can't be taken away from me.


I'd like to present 31 Days, hosted by The Nester! I stumbled upon this project from a blogger I regularly check up on and thought, "Why not?" No time like the present to blog more. I'm going to blog (at least try) every day, for the next 31 days. I will be blogging about Discovery in Contentment and Simplicity. I know it's a long title and I don't exactly know where it will go, but God has really put this upon my heart. I'm moving too fast, I'm desiring too much, and I'm leaving Him out of the equation. For the next 31 days, I'll be sharing about my obstacles, my goals, my fears, my passions, and by the end, I hope to have discovered some promises from God, found a strong contentment in being in this season of life, and simplified how I do everything. It's not going to be easy. It will actually be quite messy. I may shed some tears, I may get angry. Maybe I'll even write some songs? I have no idea. But I'm excited about the journey that is my life!

There were many categories of your own to choose from, or you could make up your own. Mine kind of falls between three: simplicity & organization, inspirational & faith, and personal endeavors.

What does Discovery in Contentment and Simplicity look like?
Maybe something like this:

- Refreshing in the word

-Realizing there is more than just here and now
-Spending more time with my family
-Honing on my passions and dreams

Again, this is a new arena. Will I have 31 days of content? Who knows? Am I excited? You betcha! Am I scared.... YES!

Stepping out and moving on. Discovery in Contentment and Simplicity.


  1. You go girl! I can't wait to see what all you discover by taking this journey.
