The post I shared earlier today was simply to make you laugh, I don’t think it really matters if all you want to show are the best looking photos of you, or share only the best memories you have with your family... ♥️
Mike bought me a fancy camera, & it’s been fun to capture special memories with my family & then express my feelings about the picture. The pretty pictures I capture & the words have special meaning to me. I hope I can inspire, uplift, or make you laugh with what I share, but sometimes I feel like the person who gains the most from sharing their heart, is the one behind the words. ♥️
And sometimes I choose to share pieces of my life where my heart has been consumed with pain. I have shared my experiences with the intention to inspire hope for others who are suffering. If I can help one of you, it is worth it to me. And I will forever be grateful for all of you who have shared kind words, love, & prayers. There really is strength in numbers.
But just because I choose to share some experiences that are hard, it doesn’t mean that I want to share all the hard moments. And it’s ok if someone doesn’t want to share ANY hard moments on social media. Most of the time, I don’t want to take pictures, or write about, or think about some of the hard moments in my life because I want to let those experiences go & not think about them again.
On the other hand, some of my pain, like losing my brother & my mom’s cancer diagnosis, I never want to forget because of the lessons I have learned & how it has shaped my life.
And another part that I want to share on this platform is the fun moments of our lives, where it’s not a staged photo or a pretty picture, its just a memory where we are having fun, or something that will make you laugh because life can be hard, & like a beautiful woman once said, you can either laugh your way through life or cry. She chose to laugh because crying gave her a headache. ✨Choosing to laugh & create happiness is what I aim to do on most days! ♥️😊
