January 8, 2013

Good morning, friends!  Kendra, Kristin and I have teamed up with the amazing writers over at Bridging the Gap's website.  I've written a blog post about the thieves of fear and worry who so often show up to steal our joy in the present moment.  Check out the preview below, and then click the link to read the rest over at Bridging the Gap!   -- Julie 

I don't know about you, but December has been a busy month in our house. As I left work on Thursday, I savored the idea of a long, quiet weekend. We have a trip to Mayo Clinic next week to seek some expert advice for our son's asthma, and this weekend was set aside to be a restful and fun time with my husband and kids. No obligations, no requirements, no nothing.  This weekend was to be an oasis of peace before we jump headlong into January, the new year, and all of the adventures 2013 is sure to bring. 
I shouldn't have been surprised when my eyes popped open at 2 a.m. on Friday morning with an uneasy feeling in the pit of my stomach. Overwhelming fear and worry had replaced my peace and joyful anticipation for the weekend. I was thinking about work. I was thinking about events that might happen in 2013. I was thinking about a variety of things -- none of which I could do a single thing about at the moment.
