At the risk of diluting any illusion of my life being all Sunshine and Roses I need to admit life too can be Rain Clouds and Twigs.
It hit home yesterday when I was messing around in the kitchen. For a moment I was laughing, really laughing.
Then it came WHOLLOP
Eight year old Phoenix called out to me, “You haven’t laughed like that for ages Mum”.
I was floored, speechless, pain was shooting through my chest, I could not breathe.
What just happened?
What did she mean?
I Capture Breathtaking Moments, I find the Fabulous in the Ordinary!
But I don’t laugh enough.
Roy looked at me to guage my reaction, he knows me well, he knew it was taking all my strength to stay on my feet and not collapse to my knees.
Of course such valuable insight, offered up by my daughter, has sparked huge reflection ever since.
Time to get some healthy perspective on the situation.
Yes I have been in The Zone, a lot lately.
In my creative bubble.
I have not always been in the moment, I am distracted a lot.
And that is okay…..for now
I am still a good, lets make that, Fabulously Great Person,
I am still a Passionately Fierce mother to my kids even when I don’t laugh as often as I usually do.
I have been gently nudged, tapped on the shoulder, asked to step out of the Zone more often and reconnect with my everyday.
You see my life is often Sunshine and Roses, but when I am in the Rain and the Twigs are hitting me I know its time to stop and listen to the message.
