In The Moment
“The sky grew darker, painted blue on blue, one stroke at a time, into deeper and deeper shades of night.”
― Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance
The last creation for 2013, I decided to take a self portrait to reflect the two sides of me.
When I look in the mirror with days that I do not have time to do my hair, just throw it up and go about my day, it amazes me at how different I feel. How it effects everything about my day. I am more of a serious person, I feel older, wiser and a bit quiet. When my hair is down I feel more confident, silly, younger. As I posted these photos I can definitely see that difference. But with each year, especially in 2013 I am learning to embrace all the sides that make me, me. The one that wears my heart on my sleeve, the one that continues to dream, the one that loves deeply with all of my heart. Discovering the person I am and will continue to grow into.
I have also been reflecting this year about time and how to live in the moment more then ever. With a new year upon me just hours away, I want to keep that simple resolution of doing everything with love, simple and easy as that. I know myself far to much that if I start making specific lists I will fail or be to hard on myself for not starting or completing what I need to and I would rather take all of that energy to just do my best in each and every moment. So no regrets, just lessons learned and gratefulness for everything that was in 2013.
Thank you everyone for another amazing year. I truly adore and appreciate your support. Looking forward to the adventures, creations and days ahead for 2014!!
Happy New Year!! xo
