Wearing my heart on my sleeve
Hey y'all! Happy Fri-Yay!
I wanted to come to y'all because I am fired up in such an amazing way today. Today is one of those days that I got to choose my attitude. Today is one of those days that I got to decide how to proceed and EVERY.YEAR on this day I keep this momentum to keep on pushing because I remember my WHY.
12 years ago on this very same gorgeous September day my dad died in a motorcycle accident and that sucks BUT I can either take that suck and let it ruin me, let it control me, and dwell on the unfair that it is OR I can take it as a reminder that I do what I do so that when the SUCK happens people have the memories.
I do the things I do to preserve that look when your daddy sees you on your wedding day so that when he's 105 and passes away you can see that fleeting second captured as a way to remember that feeling of his arms around you.
I do what I do because life is too freaking short to build somebody else's dream when I can be building my own.
I do what I do because someday when we have sticky little kiddos of our own I can be with them as much as possible because I won't have to punch a time clock for someone I despise because I went for it with everything I had.
I do what I do because I NEVER want any of you to wish that you were in the frame WITH your kiddos and I never want them to wish you were there either
I do what I do because each and every one of you inspires the hell out of me. The World is an awful place sometimes, full of tragedy and hatred, and I see the LOVE in all of you. I see the best in humanity when I see the way you look at your baby girl, whether she's a newborn or getting married. I see the love that y'all share and it lights my fire every.single.time.
At any given moment I could have decided life was unfair because of a split second freak accident and let that determine that I couldn't build this dream of mine. But I didn't. And I won't. And that second of complete and total SUCK will fuel my journey every step of the way.
And with that, I challenge each of you to find the SUCK that has been holding YOU back and turn it into your WHY. Let it light your fire instead of extinguishing it and for every moment that you feel like you're down remember that I am in your corner and you CAN get.back.up. <3
I'm obsessively grateful for all of you. All of you who trust me with your little babies, with your wedding days, with your family smiles. I'm obsessively grateful that I can do what I LOVE and build the life of my dreams because of your never ending trust in my journey.
ENJOY THE RIDE Y'ALL,
