the calm


Life is good.

Too good?

I have a husband who loves me.

I have a husband.

I love him more today than the day we married.

I have love.

I have a job in the field I was educated for.

I have a job.

My husband has a job that solely provides for us.

I have a secure and stable home.

I have a home.

My parents are alive and healthy.

So are my siblings.

I have friends that care about me.

I have friends.

Finances are in order.

One of my greatest stresses is what to cook for dinner.

Should I cook?

I roll my eyes at my silly thoughts.

Life has never been this easy.

Something is wrong.

Is this the calm before the storm?

Why can't I just trust?

Trust.

The calm.

Just relax and enjoy the journey! That is what life is about.

Don't sweat the small stuff.

I am the same way...I'm always worried about what's going to happen next...but I learned I can't predict the future, so I shouldn't try so hard!

Hey! I'm going to be doing The Husband Project (maybe with another blogger - you're supposed to have "accountability buddies" - was wondering if you might be interested!)

This is a beautiful post, in part because of your candor, which we *totally* understand. It is so hard to trust and not fear, I have to work on it everyday. :)
