I have a confession. Until yesterday I had never stepped foot onto a golf course. I never have had the desire to and thinking of it actually makes me feel impatient. My hubby and I have been together 10 years and he has actively golfed since I've known him. In the past year though, he has developed a greater love for it. So yesterday he went with a couple of friends and asked me if I wanted to meet up with them. I told him that I had a million things to do, but he convinced me to go anyway. I had a doctor's appointment in the morning (I got my ears flushed out. It was amazing and I can actually hear the cicadas now. Can you believe I couldn't before!! Crazy huh? Anyway...) so after I was finished I met them on the back nine. See how much I've learned...lol.
I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed myself! Not only was it a beautiful day, but spending time with my husband not worrying about stuff was exactly what I needed! Yes those million things I needed to get done still need to be done, but what I realized yesterday is that sometimes we need to slow down and enjoy the greater things in life. So often I get consumed with the little things. I worry about so much that I can't even control!! I need to remember to "Let go and let God". I need to enjoy my husband more often and remember the reasons we fell in love. I need to not worry about the millions of things I can't control. I need to enjoy my children more and live more in the moment. Simply put, I need to relax and enjoy my life. Because I have only one on this Earth and I better make it count! Because God has truly blessed me with so much. And you, too! Just look around. Look at the beautiful blue sky and enjoy it!:)
So here is to an attitude of gratitude. And worrying less. Well at least trying!:)
I flipped my calendar and this was the picture today. You think God is trying to tell me something:)
