And the seasons keep on a changing. Each one with something new to offer. I’ve been coming here to Maui to visit my mom for nearly 20 years. Been through a lot here. Not the always the postcard version of the island. Been to the visitation center at the jail more than I’d like to remember & countless times to the court trying to do my best to protect the person who brought me into this world. The public defenders & case workers offices. I’ve found myself unconscious at the doors of the emergency room. I even left part of my reproductive organs and a tiny little being here. Processed relationships & breakups. And through it all this island has healed, nourished, and captivated me with her beauty. 🌎
I’ve had many beautiful times here too. Playing, growing, changing, dancing, loving...And right now I’m soaking up the joy & inspiration I feel seeing these 2 sweet, wild creatures delight in the earth as we visit their grandma. I relish in seeing my mom at peace in her life, and this sense of calm that I feel being here with my babies. My heart is truly celebrating this time & space to be together. 🙌
We all have struggles, heartbreak & loss despite how it might appear, especially in the social media version of our lives. Sometimes it’s good to remind ourselves of that so we remember to keep being gentle & kind to each other. But when the season of our lives calls for celebration, may we celebrate! That’s what I’m doing in my heart in this moment 🙏
Happy Spring Equinox.
