i realized something today

I'm always telling my husband to "have faith," but I seldom follow my own advice. I'm really good at dishing it out, but frequently guilty of [over] worrying about the future and what might come -- to the point that I'm often missing the obvious -- I'm blessed. How insulting my doubt and lack of true faith has been.

I've decided to make a conscious effort to really trust in the Plan for my life, rather than trying to control everything.

I stepped outside of my box big-time at work today, and it felt unexpectedly good. It also enlightened me. I don't know when it happened, but somewhere along the way I learned to wrap myself up way too tight in my own comfort zone and fear any kind of unknown or risk. That's so not the way I want to live my life, or how I want to model life for my son.

So hooray for personal epiphanies on Thursdays. I love it when I can put some miles behind me on the road to discover who I am -- especially when the sky is so bright and blue.

Awesome. Bottle up that sentiment and save it for those miserable days when everything seems wrong.

I pulled this quote from my September issue of Real Simple Magazine and stuck it on my fridge:

"Nothing great has been & nothing great can be accomplished without passion." (G.W.F. Hegel)
