My friend, Joss asked the following question in a post – ‘Do you ever run across a picture and hear yourself saying, “that’s who I want to be?”
Well, yes, actually I have! This one!
Why this one?
This is the age of women. We live by the cycles of life and death, coming and go of the days, weeks, months and years. Through the rush of life, our bodies slowly change from girl to woman, to mother, to crone. The wisdom within each women’s heart is a precious gift for those who take the time to sit and listen, to feel and to know.
As my body continues through it’s cycles of life, I sit and wonder how I can find the peace that this photograph portrays. I need to find the quiet within my heart and soul to do those things I need to do day by day, which I have so sadly not given myself space to fully appreciate in my life, but as my body continues on it’s journey, my spirit calls out for peace.
Sometimes we need to let go of what we think we need and free fall into faith, putting aside fear and allowing ourselves to land exactly where we are supposed to be.
- I hope my friend does not mind, but I want to pass this forward – How you come across a photograph or a picture and thought, “That is how I want to be?”
