My Worry Warts Are Fading

Here are some of the things I've been worried about over the past several weeks:



The gender of the baby.


Mia's graduation of preschool.  (The years are outpacing me!)






And here's what I didn't know I needed to be worried about:




Strangely, after such a fearful event, I'm not very worried about things anymore. 

Here is life.  It is unpredictable.  Things will happen -- nerve-wracking things and relaxing things and joyful things and heartbreaking things.  But they are, for the most part, unstoppable.  All we can do is love each moment and hope for the best.  Make the best.  This doesn't mean I'll stop hashing out my thoughts and combing through them for meaning; I'll still over-analyze the world and my reactions to life, but deep down?

I know that everything will be okay.

  4. There is something oddly calming about realizing that our control is mostly illusory. Each time I weather an unexpected change, I feel that calm. I think it comes from realizing that I can keep going, and I will.
