Life is a funny, cruel, ridiculous, strange and wonderful thing that goes by way to fast and often - in a manner of a drunk driver. One day you realise that planning it hard-core is a waste of time... Time... That precious gift we are given at birth to inhale and embrace as an opportunity of going on a journey. So stop making too many plans, stop asking yourself "what if" - do it if you want and can, stop waiting for the better day to come - just stop, take a moment to breathe, think of your loved ones, enjoy every second of every day as it was your last... Not because the words sound beautiful in your head, but because it really is true and unfortunately we, being stupid human beings, often realise it a little too late.
Here, we made plans, back in January when I shared by first inspo board. Things were different. Not always good-different, but... alright. We were making plans, for the spring and summer and even the future. Here, for the three of us. Fast forward to the early days of March - just us two, with an offer on the house that got sold within hours after we put in on a market, and a feeling of being suspended in some kind of weightlessness. Lost in time.
We chose not to make plans any more, or at least not too many, but instead explore and live now, today, in the moment, healing, loving, crying, laughing, being alive. And the spring, with its fresh air and little fragile greenery fearlessly stemming out of the cold and dark soil is a perfect moment for a fresh start, a new chapter.
You are more then welcome to join me...
