it seems like the previous few weeks are reminding us, whispering in our ears. 

life is short. life is so sweet. life can drastically change at any moment. 

i’m not one for careful living. or worried living. but i think when you’re aware of the above, and get reminders of it…it can inspire you to live an almost opposite of a careful, constant life.

the malaysian flight. i just returned from spending days with my young uncle who has lou gehrigs disease. and now on my drive home this morning, less than a mile from my house, a news helicopter crashes and kills two, injuring others badly.

how quickly life can change. in a daily routine task, even just driving to work in the morning. its terrifying if you think too long on it. but these past few weeks, my heart has been mindful of just how precious life is. really any daily stressors are minor. the things we focus on should be the good and – even the simple pleasures we are allowed to enjoy each day. how much love is worth, and really how anything less than holding it cherished every single day is a waste.

why not live full, love as completely as we can. hold things. let things go that dont deserve negative effort. let the good seep thru into our being. it’s often after a huge change, we can only wish we would have lived to this standard, prior.


i enjoy these reminders life can bring. also just a flash at how incredible and important what I get to do, is. documenting those happiest moments. the most important moments. when things change, how much a picture can be worth. a very good reminder to me. 

enjoy your very normal, beautiful routine tuesday.
