Change

Is a beautiful thing.
Keeping life full of the ever desired feeling of something new.

As people, we are in constant motion.

100_1633

Always changing.

Always growing.

Like the decrease in sunlight which slowly causes changes like these…..

and today, October 29, 2010.

A total transformation. 
This got me thinking.
If these gigantic trees can change so much in just nine days, imagine what we as people can change about ourselves in the same amount of time?

I feel we are all striving to be better.
Better mothers. Better friends. Better people.
But in order to know where you are going you must know where you’ve been. 
To own who you are and who you want to be really takes time. Time of reflection.

Take it from these three pumpkins.
One minute they are plain, basic, and closed.
Then they are transformed into something completely unique with a totally different purpose in life.
Something they always knew they had in them. 
The ability to bring so much happiness and joy to three little girls.

{Gracie’s shoe of the week}

As humans, we are always evolving. 
For example, one day we like crocs, but the next we go for the Cinderella slippers and pink socks look.
All. Day. Long.

We can become whatever and whoever we desire.  
However, changing in hopes of becoming perfect?
A toxic desire. We are not meant to be perfect.

Rather than striving for perfection, embrace your differences that make you stand out from the crowd.
Love yourself.  Embrace your faults and embody who you are.

{Mia’s Orange & Black Day at school}

Shift your life goals and instead of it being about what you can get and how successful you can become, make it more about becoming whole as a person.
You can not go through life trying to be perfect and remain whole.

The superficial outside appearances can change in an instant.
But instead of focusing on the outside so much, try to work on the inside changes that you know would make you a happier more whole human being.
Live and examine life.

If all the trees can change so dramatically in just nine days, think about what you can do to better yourself, your life, your children, your world.
