Inexplicably Good

I woke up today with this feeling I haven't had in months, possibly a year. I don't know if it can be called relief or what, but this feeling is optimistic and good.

I've had this terrible headache for about a month. I seriously thought there was something wrong with me. It turns it out that it was just a cold, turned sinus infection, with retroactive congestion and muscle tension. But today, no headache.

The anxiety, sadness, bummed-out-ness that I've felt at work for the past three-plus years isn't here. It's just not. Nothing has happened, nothing has changed. I just feel different.

I feel good. I've got this wonderfully supportive husband, who listens to my rants and raves. I've got this adorable two year old, who just lights up my world. I've got this new little person on the way; even though I've already gained 15 pounds, I'm really excited about that.

I guess there is an explanation, but man, it's surprising.

Philippians 4:6-8 (English Standard Version)

6do not be anxious about anything,but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Yay! I'm glad you feel so good. When I was pregnant with #2, when I hit my second trimester, I was on cloud 9. The ubber-happy feeling lasted all through the rest of my pregnancy, hit the roof during labor/delivery (best day of my life!) and went well into his second month of life out of the belly.
