A Hopeful Heart (#183)

I’m nervous.

I have made expectations for my future and need to release them. I can only hope my future turns out the way I want it to but honestly, it’s not up to me. It’s out of my control and that’s not for me to worry about. I’m grateful to just be in this moment at all, regardless of how it turns. I’m hoping the Universe helps me out on this one but if not, I’ll make the most of it.

One day at a time.
