It took me 348 days to get to trust?
I have written before about why I try to avoid projecting–mostly it’s because for me, I tend to see storm clouds on the horizon, no matter how sunny the day. And as I’ve noted in the past, often I have to remind myself that half of the time that I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop, in reality the first shoe was all in my head.
So today, I am trying to remember to trust–to trust that things really are okay right now, and chances are, will be okay in the future.
No, not perfection. Not a life without hardship, or struggle, or suffering. But what if I could live a life confident that things really are okay right now, and chances are, will be okay in the future?
That should be so easy, really. So why is it a struggle?
But here’s the thing (and it’s so simple that I feel almost silly having to point it out to myself). Every time I find myself worrying about what might come down the pike, all I need to do is pay attention to what’s right in front of me right here, right now and that worry disappears.
And unless I’m mistaken, that thing I feel when worry disappears is called gratitude.
So today: a little less worry, and a little more trust.
And a whole lot more gratitude too.
