Life with Waves

Imagining it flow back and fourth.

Imagining it crash or gently fall.

Imagining life compared to the water.

Imagine if we could just have it all.

A Big Bang or the Quiet collide.

Life can definitely give either.

So take the wheel and adjust your sail so you can guide yourself through the water.

As I go back and reminisce on when my daughter, Gracie was just about to turn one years old.

This photo came across the memories and it was her one year photo shoot I did at Diamond Lake WA.

Now, when I took this photo I merely was thinking how adorable and chunky she looked. When I look at it now I still see that but, I also simply see a little human gazing into the water.

Her thoughts? I have no idea.

Could she be thinking of simply swimming?

Could she be watching the waves as they slowly come to the shore and fall quietly?

Possibly she is thinking deeper than we will ever know or understand when they are this young.

Either way, this photo has become so much more beautiful to me than it even was before.

I now see something in this photo that allowed me to see some clarity almost 2 years later.

This photo inspired me to write what I wrote.

Have you ever pictured your feelings like a pulse? (Like waves) The up and down, up and down.

That, for some reason clicks with me in a way to write what I did.

It’s up to us when we want to smooth things out in life, (water) create peace in our environments and we allow what we want. It’s our choice.

We can not change the size of the waves or how the water falls. But, we can learn to ride and we can learn to get back up. Becoming stronger swimmers.

God gave us everything we need to succeed in this life with what we want.

Don’t let a hard crash keep you from all the gentle but, life-changing falls you will get to experience and don’t be afraid of the hard crashes. They will shape us all in the end because, most hard lessons do.

Embrace your journey and LIVE your life the way YOU intend to WANT to live.

Thank you.

Here sharing all the things I learn through my Vegan and plant based diet. Before my journey beginning 2-8-20, I focused my blog on a completely different angle and now sharing food, insight on my journey it has become or will be becoming my new sharing content. I hope you enjoy and don’t forget you can ALWAYS direct email me with questions. I believe that by giving truth, raw content, massive encouragement, motivation through experience and laughter I can impact one soul at a time. Inspire one smile a day. Bring joy through words and expression. Someone that struggles with high anxiety and it's best friend depression I'm far to familiar with needing motivation. But just because one struggles it does not mean we are incapable. Together we are stronger and braver. Together we can encourage and enlighten each other. But here, I simply want to give hope and faith back into you. Because you are very Valued. Everything I have been through in my life I believe has gained me experience. Through lessons and still learning my hopes are to share it all with you. In hopes, it will encourage you positively and with love. We need more of both those things in the world, so why not spread it here? Once a loud voice, but became a quiet one and now I’m back to speaking up. Speaking out and sharing my truth. But making sure the message is always paired with love, honesty, and encouragement. I hope somewhere along your viewing here today it opened a door to coming back where you want to be.
