Every time I hear another friend has started dating someone, a little piece of me aches. I am genuinely happy for them, but I am concerned time is slipping away for me. I have wasted so much time worrying about something I have no control over. Imagining how, if I manage to go on a date, it will end.
This upcoming year will be about changing my mindset and thus my behaviour. I will choose to live in the moment and have faith.
I anxiously await 2017.
Today I am wishing I was further along. If I look back, objectively, there is progress. It just seems so small right now.
The setbacks make the journey so tough. It's getting a flat tire and not having a spare. So you're stuck. You're stuck in whatever situation you find yourself. You feel helpless. Then remember you have been here before and you did get through. And you will continue to get through.
I received a letter from one of my nieces today. My heart exploded. My life has meaning because I am an auntie.
He gives the childless woman a family,
making her a happy mother.
Praise the Lord! Psalm 113:9
Today: Like most, I'm trying to figure things out. Sometimes that's day by day, moment by moment, and even breath by breath.
