I have decided to let today take whatever shape it desires. Lately I have been exhausting myself by spending energy on things I really can’t control. This photo, in it’s own little way, encouraged me to just let things be. For some reason I love how the bubble changes the way the mountain looks.
When life surprises us with ups & downs I feel it can make what we thought we understood suddenly appear very confusing. I’m allowing myself some time to reevaluate the way I perceive things. Hopefully that will be the key to seeing mistakes as moments of growth & opportunities to accrue wisdom.
Todays quote helps me realize how incredibly blessed my life is. Despite all the oddly shaped outcomes I’m still so grateful. Cheers to a fresh new week.
“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; But remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” -Epicurus Greek philosopher (341 BC – 270 BC)
After the wind howled all day & night yesterday it finally began to rain — it was a relief hearing heavy drops patter against my windows instead of the wind shaking them. I’m not a huge fan of the wind when I’m alone.
It’s quiet in our house today but I still can’t stopplaying this (click text). Roman has a new favorite thing: mauling my head/attempting to eat my hair. I just don’t really care enough today to make him stop. All I ask is that my eyeballs stay intact.
When I saw this little piece of heaven on Pinterest something wonderful happened: My Boxcar Children days flashed right before my eyes. They were my favorite books when I was wee and I always dreamed of being a ‘boxcar-child’. The thought of living off of berries, cream, and stale bread from the local bakery was just perfect to me. It’s amazing how our idea of “perfect” changes as we grow. I’ve always had a special place for exploring, especially in the mountains (The Hatchet was also a favorite of mine)
Who wants to meet me there?
I hope you’re having a delicious Sunday & enjoying the first day of April. There’s just something about a new month that makes me feel like I’ve got the whole world in my hands. I hope you feel the same way, it’s pretty empowering.
All my love, Bee
Ps. We didn’t win the lottery. What the hell dude I thought the chances were good?..
Today I’d like to sit beneath an umbrella and kiss until the rain stops; Then we can go inside & laugh about how we didn’t feel a drop. How special is it to have someone to do such silly things with and not have it feel silly at all.
I love you Andy. I can’t wait for you to come home.
