Saturday Upsides: A Blessing and a Curse

It is, once again, time for Saturday Upsides!  Don’t forget to check out this page for Saturday upsides from previous weeks.  Please join me this weekend to share an upside you have found.


I thought I would share a picture of my husband I’ve always loved.  I know it has horrible lighting and was taken with an old cell phone, but for some reason it’s one of my favorites.  This was shortly after we started dating, I think.

I say that I am a natural born worrier.  I don’t know if this is true or if I just worry all the time and blame it on being born that way.  But however it came to be, I am a worrier.

I worry – will I pass a test?
I worry – will our income be enough?
I worry – what do people think of me?
I worry – will I get in a car accident?
I worry – what will I do when my husband is gone on a trip?
I worry – what if someone breaks in and kills me in my sleep?
I worry – what will I blog about? 😉

Now while that last one was more sarcastic than anything, I do tend to over dramatize things.

Sometimes it irritates me that my husband isn’t a worrier.

Can you believe it?  I know, not worrying is actually a positive characteristic!  Sometimes it doesn’t seem like he cares about things as much as I do.  When I step back and look at it, though, I know that he does.  He just has better control of his emotions.

SO, I’m trying to look at the upside in my life in this area – I have the positive encouragement of my worry-free husband by my side.  Deep down, I know I would go crazy if he were as stressed out as I get sometimes! 🙂

PS: Another good thing about my life lately:

My awesome husband and I are officially going to Romania next summer for our Romanian wedding reception! 🙂 Oh, all the things to worry about with international flights!!  Just kidding.

Want to play along?
