Such a lovely post today from my friend Brenda Lynn, it really made me think. I've been in such a place of scarcity lately that I can hardly recognize anything else. Her questions are my questions, "How are we going to pay the mortgage? What about Christmas? Gosh, I wish I had that!"
It's so silly to think that way, really. Obviously, you don't want to ignore problems - but it's not necessary to live inside them. If I just look at the past I can see that things generally tend to work themselves out - or we make them work - and that all the worrying I did before those problems were worked out was pointless. I have so much in life to be thankful for and it's a shame that I sometimes can't see past life's little problems to see the things that really matter to me. My beautiful, funny, sweet girl; my brilliant, funny, silly husband; my generous, loving family; my amazing community; my soul sustaining art - these are the things that make my life worth living, the things deserving of my focus.
