I feel more like myself than I have in awhile.
That’s a weird thing to say, no? Not feeling like yourself when you are, in fact, living each day in your body and making conscious decisions around your own actions.
But you know, the evolution of a person can do that. It can make you move so quickly that you race to put all of the great things that you love into one suitcase - double, heck even triple check it, - only to inevitably find out that you forgot a few meaningful pieces.
That spirit inside of me- the one that wanted to quite literally run faster, climb higher, and sing louder was somehow missed. I think right around the time the mister went overseas, I quickly replaced her with a sensible alternative. A person that was more scheduled, less risky, and, at times, too focused on which rung of the ladder she was standing on.
In five days, we move into our new home. It’s snugly nestled in the woods and sits on top of a winding ridge. Just as you reach the final bend in the road, there is the most gorgeous view of the river and lake below.
That view has been the reminder I needed to go back and find that spirit I left behind. There are trails to run, trees to climb, and a refreshing new space that needs to be filled with music.
That spirit, the one I missed, is needed here.
Sully recently started calling Adam “Hero Daddy”. He wants to wrestle with his daddy, bath with his daddy, paint with his daddy, and watch dirt bike races on YouTube with his daddy. Sully not only watches his every move, but he’s now trying to emulate them. It is becoming clear that the mister really is a super hero in our little boy’s eyes. #minetoo
Everyone has their own vision of romance. This is mine: our perfect little person fast asleep, a warm drink in hand, cuddled up next to the man I adore, jamming to down home tunes and watching old home videos. #lifeisgood
