CountING life in moments
The spring time dew kisses my sweet lips
Blowing life into the cold grey shell
I come alive sprouting imperfect perfection
A fleeting beauty, so fragile, so pure
Counting moments and not months
I serve as a gentle reminder
That life is overwhelmingly beautiful
Yet also tragically short
Do you remember when you were a child and the days were so long? When a year took forever to complete and Christmas was too far away?
Have you ever been so caught up in a moment that time stopped? And then in a second it’s over, never to repeat again. Maybe it was a moment of triumph, of accomplishment, or maybe it was a moment missed.
Each year I miss the Cherry Blossoms here in Sydney but this year I made sure to go see them! I also combined it with a shoot featuring this gorgeous playsuit from Alice McCall, one of my favourite brands. Very fitting with the Cherry Blossom theme this piece features delicate and intricate lacing which I love.
I want to take a moment to talk about moments missed. I find that life often throws you choices and opportunities that you only get a split second chance to seize, before you lose them forever. I’ve learnt that if you’ve found someone special tell them and don’t let them go because finding a good person is rare. Or if you have the chance to travel or take on a new business venture, just do it. You’ll gain so much more from taking the chance, than not and always left wondering about the what ifs.
Was there a time when you let a moment slip through your fingers?
