Staying Positive

I am a worrier. In my present state, there are just too many instances where things could go wrong. I think it was yesterday when I put down this book I was reading, What To Expect When You're Expecting. I reached the chapter about Labor and Delivery and it scared the wits out of me. Today, I learned of a couple more other things that could wrong with the pregnancy and the baby. Yes it is good to arm yourself with all these information but not to the point where it feels like it is the bane of my existence.

My point is the world is a scary place on its own and there is no need to scare myself more by feeding my mind with all these horror stories. Also I would not want to attract all these negative vibes into my system as we tend to attract what we think.

Instead, I choose to pray, be grateful and hold on to my faith. As I have always repeated, God has never failed me.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
-- Philippians 4:8 (NIV)

What is true is my pregnancy has been easy and complications-free. Praise God for that. I am sure that my baby would appreciate a mother who is positive and joyful.
