The One Thing I Will Do Differently in 2014

Girl Between the Lines Link up


Today I am linking up with A Beautiful Exchange and The Albrechts Blog for ‘The Girl Between The Lines’ Link-up!  I am excited to share more about myself with all of you through this link-up!

I hope you enjoy reading this post and I hope that you link up too!

The topic for this link-up is to talk about the one thing I would like to do differently in 2014 and why.  Out of everything that I could think of I decided to pick one that I thought was too big to be a resolution.  Out of everything that I want to happen/change this next year, the one thing I would like to do differently would be to not worry so much about the future and to really focus on the present.

In the past I had worried so much about the future and it stressed me out so much!  That’s all I did.  I constantly worried about what to do after college, where I was going to live, who I was going to be with, etc.  I don’t want to do that anymore.  I have started changing this aspect of my life this year, but I want to continue to make it even more different than how it used to be.  I have started to realize that what I have right now in the present needs my attention more than my thoughts about the future do.  Although my future is important to me, in order for me to be happy in the future…I need to be happy right now.  To make this happen, I try to not be so uptight.  I try to be carefree and less controlling.  I laugh more, love a lot, and devote time to make others happy as well as myself.

I want to thank my man for showing me what it looks like to not worry and be stressed out.  I don’t think he knows he has done this, but I am thankful for every day that I get to spend with him.  He is the perfect example for me and I can happily say that he truly brings out the best in me!

What is one thing you would do differently in 2014?!

    OH I know the worry about the future one – constantly worrying about what if something happens to my husband – what if…what if this. I HATE it and I have tried/am trying so hard to not focus on that and just enjoy now, because NOW is all we have.

      I completely agree! It sucks to constantly be thinking about the future/what ifs!

    • I know what you mean. I worry so much about losing my husband too. I need to stop because it takes away from the joy I have with him today. 😉

  • I want to stop worrying so much about people that aren’t in my life. Who cares unless they’re important to me?

      I have that problem too sometimes. It used to be worse when I was younger, but I am slowly letting it go. I am trying to not care too much of what random people think of me. To a point.

  • In the Bible, worries are called “vain imaginations.” Worry is a waste of valuable time. Glad you were able to learn this so young. I wish I had. I would have been a lot happier through the years. 🙂
