what i know...

here we are with a blank slate.  a new beginning,  a brand new year.   we are in the middle of a snow storm which left me with a totally free unexpected day to do whatever i wanted.  so, of course there was baking and reading and totally being in the moment.  there was time for reflection too.

i have some reflections on 2013.  some things i know and some things i need to keep re-learning over and over again.
  • you can't change people, i wish it was different but it never will be.  it's a life lesson that i continue to struggle with.
  • usually my intuition is extremely accurate.  i need to let go of what i can not control and to be confident in my gut feelings.
  • the sky at this time of year can often bring me to my knees with its beauty.
  • i will never get tired of taking pictures of food.
  • i love music and it can easily alter my mood, usually in the best way.
  • i will never stop worrying about my kids.
  • life grabs my attention and holds it.
  • my family has taught me some important lessons i never knew i needed.
  • families weren't made to be perfect, we all have our faults and our good parts.
  • the truest friends are those who are there beside you when things go poorly and when things go well.  a true friend will never abandon you.
  • i hate cancer and all it has done to so many people i love.
  • sometimes i miss people so much it makes me physically hurt.
  • nothing matters unless you are near the people you love.
  • our safety rests in the instinct to believe in the best of each other.
  • what ever makes you feel bad leave it - whatever makes you smile keep it.
love sent, xo
