This life changes so drastically in the blink of an eye. We all regret mistakes we’ve made and we’ll have many more mistakes to make. But this life isn’t about beating ourselves up, it’s about accepting life and continuing to live it. It’s about learning from what we did wrong and making a conscious effort not to do it again. This life is anything but easy and because of that we can become better people. We can become the person we want to be and strive to be. Our dreams and actions and feelings will all mean something. Something for the greater, something to make us fight for how we live our lives. We’ve all wished on a shooting star, we’ve all prayed for something better, we’ve all given the advise we needed to take ourselves. It’s a fight to make up for all we fell short on. But our short fallings happened for a reason. We have to be strong enough to believe that, and sometimes that feels impossible but life goes on whether we do or not. It’s up to us if we’re ready to join the world again.
Happy Friday : )
I looked over in the dark, the clock read 5:00 AM. That is not an hour I wanted to see unless necessary. I rolled over, still wide awake. I contemplated staying snug in bed until I had to start my day. I looked over in the dark again, the clock read 6:48 AM. Quietly and quickly I got out of bed, threw on my uggs and grabbed my camera bag. Maybe I could still make the sunrise. Maybe. One more look over my should before I left the house and I walked back to the dresser to get my grandparents wedding rings. You never know what might inspire you.
The type of sunrise I wanted wasn’t coming and although I got some decent shots of the sky it wasn’t enough. I wanted more. Back in the car I raced to follow the sun and get a better view before it fully rose up. Racing to get the perfect shot.
And then I had another thought.
What if I’m living my life this way? Chasing something I can never really reach. Chasing something I think is better without stopping to enjoy what I already have. What if time is slipping through my rearview mirror and only now am I realizing it? I started toward home, following the sun only with my eyes.
Just because something is behind you doesn’t mean it is bad or that you lost it, it just means that part of you is moving on to bigger and better things. And just because you want to chase a bigger and better thing doesn’t mean you should overlook what you have.
So when the sun is rising in front of your eyes, enjoy the view while you can because pretty soon it will be behind you waiting for its next chance to catch your eye.
This Christmas I bought myself some of the cutest wine glasses from Pier 1 (and of course had to go back and get mom some when she saw mine)!! Then as I gift I got Mickey Mouse shot glasses! So cute! Can not wait to display these at Christmas time in the future house : )
Seeing as I absolutely – as in, rather go to the dentist or pull out all my hair -DREAD being in front of the camera I’m only going to post a FEW behind the scenes photos. Happy Tuesday : )
Do you see me all the way to the left?! ; )
This one is my FAVORITE and I had NO idea it was taken until I culled the session!
