Today was a good day filled with good times, laughter, a new insult to use on people…..(ever heard someone say another person smells like a dirty crocodile butt?), some Sun, some heavy rain, lightening and thunder that shook my windshield.
The best part though was this
I think spring has found its way to Western Washington. Good night all.
I’ve spent the last week wrapped up in my back pain and haven’t taken much time to enjoy the simple beauty that is all around me. It just goes to show with one change of events a persons whole outlook and perspective can also change. So today as I try to muddle through a mountain of homework that refuses to do itself I’m also taking a minute to reflect on a moment if simple beauty that brought a smile to my heart. Hope yall are having a better time than me.
This wonderful start to last night’s sunset also marked the end of my 37th year. I’m sure it was more beautiful than a picture will ever do justice but I thought I would share none the less. Have an amazing day.
There is a lot that has changed or will be changing this month. Some changes brought joy others not so much but we’ve made it through. The last month has been an emotional roller coaster to say the least, but now I am in a place where I can look back and say some of it sucked rotten eggs but we’ve grown as a family. We are closer than we were because of the good and the bad. All the joy and tears in the world don’t amount to squat without people beside you who love you and truely have your best interest at heart. The other thing to be said for this last month….people can be surprising. Just because you think someone is in your corner doesn’t mean that they are, also friends and support can come from some of the unlikelest of places but just go with it. It’s better to have an unexpected true friend than an untrue false one. Change can be good even if at first it doesn’t seem or feel like it. Sometimes you need the change to shake you out of your comfort zone and spread your wings. It’s hard to soar if you’re cramped in a cage – my advice to myself in all this changing and rearranging of our lives is this although some of this is unpleasant it’s better to go with the flow than to become stagnate. Here’s to hoping whatever changes you are going through make you a better person and that you are able to find beauty in something everyday.
Adult life is NOTHING like I dreamed it would be when I was a child or a teen. Lot’s of things happened that I let get in the way of the dreams that I had for myself. None of them were really concrete but they were still my dreams. Now years later I’m finally starting to work on achiving some of those things. I’ve noticed on this part of the journey that some things are better left to the young, with their cocky devil may care attitudes but other things require wisdom, grace and experince that comes with age. I’m not saying that I’m old but I’ve been places and done things that younger people won’t get a chance to exerience. A person can share knowledge but it’s not the same as living through a similiar situation or set of circumstances. My hat will remain firmly in place but I will at times tip my brim at the youth for they are wonderful, remarkable people (on the whole). I however, prefer my age, my wisdom and my knowledge that came as a part of the journey of having once been in their shoes.
