I Wish... 30 Things: Day 17

What is the thing you most wish you were great at?

I think there are a lot of things in life I wish I were great at. Cooking, sleeping, smiling, laughing, sewing, painting, crafting.... The list could go on and on. However, I believe the thing I MOST wish I was great at is living a life that is free of constant worry - to just learn to "go with the flow" and stop second-guessing myself.

Justin is very much this person. He rarely stresses or worries. He has this since of calmness and peace. I wish I were great at that. I  am so uptight most of the time! Seriously. It's beyond my control. Ha!

Between my job and other stresses, I just have a hard time letting go. But when I do - whether it is through prayer, a massage, or just having fun - I am a completely different person.

I need to laugh more. I need to smile more. I need to giggle and tickle and wrestle and roll around and play fetch with Oreo and appreciate the little things in life.

I need to remember this day and WHY I have a million reasons to let it all go:

THIS is the look of pure JOY. No worry or stress here!


PS: If you are visiting from Kelly's Korner SUYL Friday - hello :) If you want to read more about my beautiful rockstar of a husband and I, start here and check out our wedding posts telling you about what happened before the first look, when I saw my husband the first time that day, walking down aisle, the ceremony, the biggest after-party ever, and the little details. If you are interested in the 30 Day Challenge, start here to read from the beginning. This blog is a mis-match of thoughts, pictures and life. Poke around and hopefully you will enjoy a little glimpse into our world.
