Relax and Enjoy the Moment

It has been quite a while since my last post. In the interim I have traveled to the Middle East, returned to a boyfriend I was missing immensely and just overall enjoyed life. 

Recently I was talking with a friend who is in the first stages of a relationship {those anxiety ridden days are hopefully behind me :)}. She was expressing her fears and confusion and desire to know where it was going.

My response? Just relax about it and enjoy the moment. I really tried to employ this philosophy this year and with this relationship. And you know what? It really is great advise and it has helped tremendously I think in moving my relationship along. I discovered a sense of understanding about myself and my abilities to cope with new situations and quickly progressing emotions that I haven't had before. Even if it doesn't work out with this relationship, I think relaxing and enjoying the moments I do have with this amazing guy is rewarding.

We can't control the future. We can't control the person we are interested in. Heck, we can't even control our own emotions at times... So why make it harder? Relationships are exciting and fun and even the hard times should be taken in stride. We all have them. But I think the key is to find that place of balance {"serenity now" -lol} and go with it.
