sometimes, I get so caught up in the dream, the idea of how I imagine life should be, that I forget to sit back and appreciate life as it is.
we drove to the mountains, my best friend Caro & I, for a wedding of a friend from high school. Kaela was a stunning bride, & we danced & laughed & maybe cried just a smidgen, as she glowed down the aisle. & before we knew it the night was over, & we curled up in our hotel room & just talked. a sigh of relief.
I have always kept too much in, a wallflower. I've never liked to cause a commotion, & I mostly like to listen more than I like to talk. but with Carolyn conversation comes easy. it felt so nice talking to her, tucked cozy in our beds.
our talks opened the flood gates, & when I got home, I broke. it all came rushing out, every little silly thing that's been bothering me. mind you, I've been sick for what feels like forever now, & I'd been lacking in sleep, so it wasn't eloquent. but afterward, when it was all out, with Max's arms around me, I felt like I had been cleansed. it was just the medicine I needed.
mountains have always had a good way of putting everything into perspective. & so maybe my dream life looks a little different than expected right now. doesn't mean I can't love it with all I've got. I hope you're loving your life with all you've got, too. 'cause there's beauty everywhere, if you look for it.
