Mother’s Day for me is about gratitude. It is a day of honoring the women who brought us into this world, raised us, and loved us. I will honor my own mother that day, but here, I’d like to honor another special mother in my life, my sister-in-law, Nicole. She is the mother to three of the most beautiful souls.
Lindsay said something that struck me. She said that “you are complex but the world is simple.” You hear people say all the time, that the world is chaotic, but we forget sometimes that it is us—everyone—that creates that chaos. It is nice to be reminded that we control what amount of peace and joy we want to have in this world.
Lindsay has what I call major cool girl vibes…sorry I mean cool ass woman vibes. She is a professional surfer, kinesiology instructor, world traveler and an overall health enthusiast. She has such a warmth, and kindness. She chases laughter, connection, and fun. How could you not want to hang out with her always?
Simplify. It’s a word that has been rolling around my head since the new year began. I want to simplify my life as much as possible. I mean not just my physical reality but my emotional reality, as well.
