Tonight, I stepped with bare feet into my yard. I paused a moment, listening to birds, admiring the tree growing in front of my house. I even felt inspired to write an encouraging note, so I snapped a photo of the small little leaves beginning to grow. But when I went to post it, this one caught my eye instead. Obviously, an accident, camera still snapping images as I lowered my hands. The picture I took on purpose is a reflection of how I want my life to be: still, bragging on spring, well and upright. But, if I’m honest, this accidental photo captures the truth in a better way; things right now feeling upside down, hazy, and aimless. I still want to write that encouraging note, but, an honest one. So… keep going. Keep finding the joy, even if it’s in the smallest of things (for me: my dog playing, jazz music, time with family). We’re here, we matter, and that’s enough. And life just flips upside down sometimes. You are still growing. Take a little rest, drink a little (or a lot) of water, give yourself a hug (no really, do it). We are so loved.
