I never want this to be a “place of pretty”.
No carefully curated photos and phrases about how perfect my life is and all who are in it. The truth is, life is messy… BUT the mess can also be beautiful.
I just want a place to be real. Somewhere I can share the tough and painful as well as celebrate the good and happy. Because THAT’S. WHAT. LIFE. IS.
But that’s how it was created, and it should be all of those things and more. I’m not here to put out an “idea” of what life should or shouldn’t be. I just want an honest reflection of where I’m at right now. And RIGHT NOW. In this very moment- things are pretty spectacular… I won’t apologize for it being that way because I know that the pendulum swings both ways and soon enough tough times will come too. But I’ll choose to see the good in every circumstance no matter the length of time between good and bad. And I’ll look for rose colored glasses when times get tough because I know that no matter how bad and murky things get, I’m still SO BLESSED to be where I am. I’m still SO BLESSED to have the job/family/spouse/child/title/house/church/car/things that I have. So many people with SO much less are spending their days being thankful and celebrating life, I refuse to not do the same.
Right now the picture is pretty, some days it won’t be.
But through it all- I’ll find a way to see the bright side/ find the love/ be thankful.
