To the man that deserves all the happiness that life can bring today and always: I hope you live this year to the fullest and remember just how special you are because you truly make the world a better place. I can’t wait to see what comes your way next and to celebrate another year of you! Happy 28th birthday to you, my sweet James. I love you!
You ever have a situation or relationship that you repeatedly tried to salvage? Each time, you try a new strategy and convince yourself “this is it, I know it” but once again it crumbles? You fight with certain things for so long telling yourself, “but if I want it bad enough-it’ll happen.”
Yeah, I know that all too well. This weekend I realized some things just can’t be fixed, that maybe, they’re not meant to be, that some situations have been solidified by the universe. I ran, I meditated, I asked myself repeatedly what would do ME better. I was faced with a choice-try another strategy yet again, or just to let it go and accept what is. I chose to move on, to embrace what was in front of me and stop fighting with what isn’t. It definitely hasn’t been easy and I’m sure I’ll falter at times but I feel lighter; at ease with a scenario I have played in my head for years desiring an outcome that just wasn’t in the script. It felt like the series finale of a show I’ve been binge watching for years. But I’m doing it-I’m choosing me. I’m choosing to move on and live in peace and love.
That means you too. Choose you. Choose to provide and surround yourself with peace and joy. I’m not preaching sunshine and rainbows, I’m sharing my journey as someone who struggles with loving just a bit too much and not letting go enough. The struggle is real and the journey is on going but we got this. Let go of what doesn’t serve you, what’s weighing you down and take flight. We’re worth it.
cultivation and dedication // Fox Gardens; journal entry for 21 May 2019:::: today we prepared a few rows of soil and planted shiso and two other types of basilicum as well as a variety of tennessee red peanut. we harvested the final bit of the carrots, some leeks and some more red scallions for our proper breakfast. @foxamongbears had more dragon tongue beans and bull’s blood beets from @soulsticeacres for us as well as more greenbrier from Prodigal Sun. The @wreckingbarnfarm strawberries we received the other day were the best we’ve ever tasted. They got gone fast! Off to make a beet ketchup!
Golden hour where afternoons are spent “porching” – socializing while sipping sweet tea and nightfall reflections on the day’s events. We invite you to experience the traditions of South Carolina #lowcountry. 📷: @jillian_eversole
