Over thanksgiving we were able to get a few shots of me and the hubby with our lovely furr babies, and I'm so thankful we did because THE SCENERY!!! Isn't it grand? We're stuck in the prairies 90% of the time, so having the hills and the lake and the foliage was really nice for the weekend.
For dinner and these pictures I of course had to wear my booties (if you didn't see the post where I raved ridiculously about them, click here), my gorgeous knit sweater, and a pair of comfy jeans (stretchy + high waisted = eating pants).
I also wanted to kinda chat just a bit. Today as I was taking a break and reading some blogs, and clicked over to Sunshine In Motion's post: Blogging The Light And Dark. I couldn't believe what I was reading, it felt like she was writing everything that I had on my heart today. I highly recommend you click over and check out that post, and the rest of their site because it really is a lovely sanctuary of realness and community. So here is where my thoughts went after reading that post...
I've been trying so hard to be happy with where I'm at, because all I hear is "if you're not happy with where you're at now, you won't be happy when you get to where you want to be." UGH. That sentence is like a shot straight to my heart. It's also like when you know you should be thankful you get to go to university, and you're so lucky you have a roof over your head and food in your belly but you can't stop being miserable because I am not living the life that I want to live. That's where I'm at. And I just want people to know (i.e. a note to myself) that even though you have a gazillion million things to be thankful for, if you're not happy where you're at, you don't have to apologize for it. You don't have to be happy because people tell you that you should be, because people remind you how lucky you are. You only have to be authentic, and true, and that's what will lead you to happiness. That is what will bring you to where you want to be.
Sooooo moral of this rant I suppose is just that you are allowed to be unhappy with where your life is at. Sometimes you feel like you're falling on your face and that is quite alright. The important thing is that you dive deeper (hehe get it... fall... dive...) into what will take you to where you want your life to go.
So here is a series of pictures showing me getting tripped by my dog's leash while attempting to look cute in my booties for the pictures. Which is my metaphor for my life today. Enjoy. It's hilarious.
