I have learned that I am only a victim to my perspective. I choose to live life experiencing joy and savoring the most mundane moments because of this path we are on. But every now and then, I stop and I remember them. Life would have been so different with 6 children. There’s so many things that would have been DIFFERENT..
Just for today though, with my sweet little muse Aspen, we created a vision of what everyday looks like with so many angels.
We drove 5 minutes from our house in Florida to a walking trail that we frequent. We have enjoyed lots of family runs together back here, it truly is a part of our lives. As we walked back through the palmettos, Aspen started to dance and twirl. It’s exactly what this dress was made for.
In the afternoon, the storms rolled in, typical of Florida summers. A Mother’s body, as amazing as it is, is designed to ride the waves of labor and I could see that manifest in front of me. The storm outside added a peaceful relief, an assurance that the world lives on outside of these walls. But in here, miracles are born.
When I took a break from my 365 project, I thought I was allowing myself to recharge, live freely without hesitation or responsibility to my art, and to focus fully on living in those moments that I loved so dearly.
But I wasn’t.
