I’m grateful for pictures. One of my favorite things to do this time of year is go through pictures. I go back through years worth of moments that I captured in time. I get to see loved ones who are far away and moments of firsts from mountain tops. I have over forty years of memories that I cherish. My heart expands as I look back to see how much my kids have grown; I laugh at the memories with friends; and I cry at my final memories with loved ones. Just writing about it puts a smile across my face. Each wall of my bedroom has pictures that inspire the best in me, which is the energy of love, abundance, and peace. I have my heavenly cheerleaders, mesmerizing scenery, and loved ones who bring joy to my heart. Anytime I need a break from any heaviness I may be feeling—I simply look around. I’m back to centered in the love that lies within me.
Today, I commit to taking pictures of moments I want to bring with me. Common knowledge tells us as we get older, our memories will fade. We have a lifetime of moments, there is no way we will remember them all. I love celebrating the moments I want to bring with me by capturing the moment. I love pulling up memories and timelines based on the pictures I’ve taken. I love that I have hundreds of picture of my life with my dad and stepmom who have both passed on. I love all the pictures of family members throughout history that guide me to who I really look like and get glimpses into their moments in time. I love the moment I caught with this mama deer and her fawn. Pictures can capture the AWE of a moment. These moments can help to re-align us with a moment we felt love, abundance, and peace to remind us how it feels. Once we feel the feeling, we can bring that energy into the present moment and let us help us move into our next with love in our hearts.
With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
