This Summer has been full of Highs and Lows.
I had started writing down a list of things I wanted to do last year and New England was high on my list. It’s funny how when you write things down they seem easier to make happen, and so when my husband had some paid travel time for us together ( a work perk) we made it happen. It was just as Idyllic as I had imagined it in my mind. Some places we travel are not how I picture them to be in my mind, but Cape Cod was everything and more and I can’t wait to go back and explore more of it someday.
What I didn’t know during this time is how fast my dad’s health was failing at this time. Looking back if I had known just how bad it was I would have spent the few days on the Lake with him with the rest of my family.. I was so glad to be able to hold his hand through those last few days. I know he heard us and how important that was to him and me.
I felt like I’ve lost some desire since he passed away to be on social media, or edit, or pursue my photography and I know that is ok. I know that in time it will get better. I’m at peace that my dad is in Heaven and I have hope to see him again one day.
So slowly but surely I am getting back to the things I love. Experiencing life, living it, sharing it.
I love seeing the world and travels through my camera.
I want to take in as much of it as I can.
Peaceful. Serene. Sailboats everywhere. Beautiful Cape Cod houses with roses all over the Arbors. Biking through the town, delicious seafood, were just a few of the things I love about New England Life. A slower pace of life. I could get used to that someday.
I know my dad would have loved it. He always loved water and peaceful places. If I could get back one more thing it would be to experience more together. Never take time for granted. It’s a precious thing. If there’s one thing I have learned is you can’t wait for things to happen, you need to go out and make them happen. Experience Life to it’s fullest. Life is always good.
