What’s Around The Corner?

For those who read my book, you know that my happy and cozy little life abruptly began to unravel at a rapid pace…In 1998, my son, Avery, was born with a serious life threatening heart defect, my dad suddenly died of a massive heart attack, and my daughter Jesse was diagnosed autistic. I felt like a tornado had swept me up and landed me on another planet. Until then, I never thought or worried about what lurked around the corner…never spent time wondering what life had in store for me next? But after all this happened, I constantly worried about the next curve ball life was going to throw at me. I guess that’s understandable considering the chain of events we went through. Thankfully, and after years of working at it, I can finally live in the present, and not worry about tomorrow. I know things are going to happen that are out of my control, they will to everyone, but why waste negative energy concerned about the what if, when, and how”s. It is certainly easier said than done, but it’s like many things in life…we do have a conscious choice, and fear is simply a state of mind.
