Ever changing decisions...

October 16, 2012  •  1 Comment

As a little girl growing up on a farm in the middle of no where, life used to feel like it would never change, that time could stand still.  Sometimes I go back home and somethings haven’t changed.  Photos are still on the same hook in the same hallway from 30 years ago. Faded wall paper drape a bedroom wall with a few rips and ripples.  And high school memorabilia line the same shelves in what used to be my brothers room (nope not my trophies). That almost sounds shrine like…just sayin’!  (I should say my parents have upgraded their kitchen since this pic).

 Living in Seattle that doesn’t seem to be the case.  Since moving here almost 15 years ago…life is ever changing.  As difficult as that may be…somedays it forces me to make decisions.  Decisions from what school will my kids attend (cause where I grew up there was 1 school)… to what goals do I want to accomplish.  (Yikes do I have goals!?)   Who is the person I am suppose to be?  There are times I know who I am and then times I am surprised by a shift that can occur in my brain where life almost feels like a dream! Where being nervous is a reality and where failure is right around the corner. 

As hard as living with your own thoughts can be, it challenges me.  It challenges me to be thankful for all I DO have, not what I DON’T have.  That being in control of me is all I can control and if someone else doesn’t want to accept friendship, love, an apology…then I choose to still be thankful and move forward. 

Like with every photo session, every wedding, every person I meet, I learn something…how do you keep striving to be the best…to be the best YOU.  I want to push life to its boundaries…not sure what that totally means but I am gonna do it. 

As a bag of good ol’ Canadian Ketchup chips sits empty between us, my good friend Chantelle  (who has been living with us for a bit) seem to laugh out loud…OFTEN!  Geeking out on facebook...messaging each other while sitting in the same room.  Creeping on to each others Spotify to copy playlists. Going to a wacky workout class together where you dance, sweat, AND  seriously almost die…and no its NOT Zumba.  It’s reminded me that no matter how different our life paths are, laughter is important…so Bob beware, life is about to change…more love, more laughter…no matter the challenges that lie ahead!

Kinda glad I can't buy these here or I'd have to add even more workouts to my life...

I'm getting my wedding dress out of the attic, bringing my gun and I'll be right over. Trying to be the best me is exhausting and after reading your post, it made me want to LET GO and LAUGH. Save me some Ketchup chips. I'm on my way...
