Wash out this tired notion
That the best is yet to come
While sometimes its nice to dream about all that the future holds, it really is a way of thinking that can be hurtful. I remember when Chris and I were dating I longed for the day we would get engaged. Once we were engaged I couldn't wait until our wedding day. Now that we are married, I dream about babies, houses and traveling. Just this morning as I ran, right before the song came on, I had been feeling slightly jealous of one of my facebook friends that announced her pregnancy. I frequently get carried away by thoughts of the future and while, for the most part, it is all fun and good, I do think I can forget to live in the moment.
This time of being married, financially stable, and without children is a unique and special time. One that I can cherish and appreciate instead of wishing away in my excitement to be a mother. I don't mean this to be a downer of a post and hope it doesn't feel that way. I was grateful for that song to come along on my iPod this morning as I was feeling sorry for my un-pregnant self when really there is so much to appreciate about my life as an un-pregnant person.
ps- if you don't know this song, you can go here to hear a clip.
