21.1 on stress and crying.

There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has
any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever.
This is a quote that my co-worker shared with me this morning. I usually stop by her cubicle since she tends to leave presents in my chair for when I get to work - maternity clothes that she no longer needs and has been passing on to me as she finds them (that I'm so appreciative of). We somehow got on the topic of hormones and I shared with her the fact that mine are out of control and that I find something to cry about almost everyday. While I'm so happy to be entering this next stage in my life (motherhood), there are so many external factors going on that I stress about and make it hard for me to soak in this experience. I spend a lot of time worrying about the future because so many things are so up in the air at the moment. I know there is no perfect time to have a baby - but anyone who knows me personally knows that I was doing everything in my power to be at a certain place in life before even considering becomming a parent - but as we all know, God has his own plans. I do have faith that everything will work out in the end, but since everything is in limbo at present time, I can't help but to be overwhelmed at times. But as my co-worker told me, being pregnant is not something that everyone get's to experience so I need to enjoy this time and live in the moment as much as possible - she's definitely right! Especially after last weeks episode where my stress level started resulting in pain in my lower abdomen, I'm trying my best to learn how to control my anxiety.
An attitude change and prayer will get me through this.
