sometimes when we get caught up in healing our broken spirits, life can become weighted with heavy dull aches and dark shadows. but we mustn’t forget that in order to evolve, we must expand our hearts open to allow the joys of life to flow through us so we can shine all that hidden light burning brightly within us. ↠
today, in the lush valleys of Northern Vietnam, i unleashed my inner child to play among a field full of my favorite wildflowers. day by day, i am learning to release what no longer serves me and dance among the seasons of my constant change and growth. abundance is everywhere 🌻
As I sit and reflect back on my life since becoming a Mom, I realize how much change happens in a season. Seasons used to blend together before I had Beau. I don’t mean like Summer, Fall, Spring, and Summer. I mean season as in season of life.
This picture was taken last August so not even a year ago and so much has changed. I was so confident in my own skin when doing this photo shoot. Actually this photo was taken by a beautiful friend I met on Instagram. @julia.christine1521 that alone says so much, I had time to make friends. That season was one of my favorite seasons to date, Beau was gaining more independence which meant I was able to take care of me and do things I wanted.
I feel like when you are pregnant, and first have a baby all your focus is on the “baby.” In those seasons we don’t have too much time for ourselves. I posted the other day how easy this pregnancy has been but that doesn’t mean I don’t struggle too. So many changes are happening to not only my body but my mind. I’m limited from doing a lot of things, and eating all my favorite food. Which don’t get me wrong I’m so blessed to be able to carry this angel baby but it’s not to say it isn’t trying. I can’t help but think about how different my life will become in just a few short months. Going from a family of 3 to a family of 4, I’m sure won’t be easy. If I learned anything from having Beau no class, no advice, NOTHING can prepare you for these life changes. You just have to enjoy each season as they come because they go by so fast. Before you know it you are in the next. -

Sono tantissimi i #murales che quest’estate colorano e abbelliscono le strette vie del borgo marinaro di #Passoscuro . 🛶
L’iniziativa è nata da volontari con l’intento di riqualificare il nostro piccolo paese...il bellissimo #girasole è uno di questi! Vi piace? 🌻

Mai tớ chạy qua quận chín gặp giáo viên hướng dẫn bài khóa luận tốt nghiệp của mình, nộp lại bản chính thức rồi phóng xe về nhà, dù về tới nhà chắc cũng nhẹm tối, cũng phê pha nỗi sợ bị cướp dí sau khi nghe chuyện cậu bạn thân kể về vụ ấy khi cậu chạy tới khúc còn cách nhà khoảng mươi dăm cây số. Cơ mà, thời gian ở đây mục ruỗng quá vô chừng, một khoảng "jet lag", ở lại cũng làm tâm trạng đi xuống.
À vẫn là cốc trà biếc sữa của Chim Nhại còn có thêm nhành hướng dương xinh xẻo mà bị out nét.
