Ebb and Flow



This year several of my friends have or will get married.
Several friends and acquaintances have had babies.
Two of my family members have died.

As I write this morning, I'm sitting in a hotel room getting ready with Momm and Boomer to go to a funeral.

And that is just life.

It's sad. It makes me take stock of my life and whether or not I'm where I want to be. If I've accomplished what I want/need to yet. Am I doing a good job with Boomer? Am I being a good daughter? A good friend? Am I being good to myself?

Its a long drive from Ohio to Tennessee, and while there are few quiet moments in a car with Boomer AND my mom, the ones that I grabbed found me deep in those thoughts.

I don't necessarily know all the answers yet. I think I'm doing decently well as a mother, daughter, friend, ect, but there is always room for improvement.

Just some early morning thoughts, on ebb and flow.

Where is the tide taking you?

Whitney,

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. What I have learned in the last few weeks is that nobody knows all the answers, but we have to keep living to gather as much knowledge as possible. Life isn't always perfect and you can't have everything you want, but there is so much pure joy.

I'm sorry for your loss, Whitney. And I know just where you're at. I think late 20s/early 30s are the time when we really start to take stock of our lives and if we're doing things right because this feels like our last chance to get going in the direction we want. Fingers crossed we both get there :)
xox,
