I used to spend so much time wondering if I would be alright…

I remember when I broke up with my ex… I was so nervous… I really liked him, but I had begun to realize that it wasn’t going to work out. I wondered if I would ever like someone else like him again… I wondered if I would ever connect with someone like him again… it was scary…

And then we broke up.

When I got engaged I was nervous, I thought about how being a wife was such a responsibility. How I would be responsible for this man’s well being for the rest of our lives together. How I would need to be an exemplary mother to our children… and the kinds of expectations people (specifically my husband-to-be) have for married women…

And then we got married.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about all the things I worry about, and how things always end up… Things are usually not as bad as I think they will be, or as fantastic as I think they will be. There are good times, and there are bad times, but in the end it always works out alright…

I love being married to my husband… and I can’t imagine life without him… so every time I look at him I’m reminded that many of the things I feared didn’t happen and will never happen… so when I start to worry about the new responsibilities… I remind myself…

“It will always be alright!”
