deep sighs

"Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves." Rainer Maria Rilke

My bestie Katie heard this quote in yoga last week and read it to me. As as admitted worrier, learning to let go has been an ongoing quest of mine. And although I've gotten better in the last few months, and have been far less consumed with worry than I was say, in March, it never hurts to be reminded that (1) most girls worry and (2) everything works out just how it should.

So why try to figure things out, when we can just embrace the mystery of not knowing what's to come? It's kind of like living in a Nancy Drew book. Or better yet, a Choose Your Own Adventure book. The choices are ours, and the outcome may be unknown to us, but it's already written. So just sit back, relax and enjoy the reading.


  1. i am a worry wart too..it's a tough life we lead lol. I try to enjoy the moment and let go! :)

  2. i definitely have a problem with worrying about things i can't control. it's hard to just let it go and let things happen.

  3. I am a total planner too and find that my biggest stress comes from not being in control. I definitely need to work on this too.

  4. It's hard not to worry! But with a little extra focus, I promise it gets easier!


i'd loooove to hear from you! you make my day! <3
