It is more important to live the life one wishes to live, Marjorie Rawlings quote

I first read this quote when one of my favorite authors, Jan Karon, quoted it in The Mitford Bedside Companion and was so struck by it. It is better to live a life you love and have less, than to live with all the comforts but not have peace. This has basically been my mantra this past year. I am intent on peace in my life – no matter what the cost! I am making sacrifices that I hope will one day pay off in a financial way but even in these moments today I’m enjoying the benefits of peace so if my hopes never turn into $$ I know it will be ok. Now that’s peace!

How about you? Does the pursuit of peace and happiness – even if you have less “creature comforts” – resonate with you? Please share in the comments section, I love to hear from you!

By the way, if you’re wondering, the butterflies seen here are part of the Martha Stewart Craft collection. I originally bought mine at Michael’s but I did find some Martha Stewart Crafts Golden Butterfly Stickers   on Amazon too.
