Without going into any personal details.
These are my boots.
I took them off for the first time yesterday at about midnight, placed them on this unfamiliar floor and began reflecting.
I’m the first to admit my life can reach a level of absolute insanity. For weeks on end we seem to run around, burning the candle at both ends trying to achieve everything we have managed to say “yes” to and add to our plates.
The visit planned for Sunday gets caught up in the chaos and postponed till next Sunday.
The call you were going to make at noon when the kids are napping fell to the side so you tell yourself, tomorrow.
What happens if tomorrow simply is no longer there?
I’ve always prided myself on my family connection.
We are tight knit and although we have had our bickerings, we are a small but mighty group.
When something happens within our group, it shakes our foundation.
It’s scares us.
It cause us to reflect on our shortcomings.
I dread the Inevitable day when someone won’t be there to answer the other end of the line.
I want so much more time.
Time is simply something we aren’t ever guaranteed.
I hate that reality.
Hate it to the core.
Nothing is more important then family.
As I sit here surrounded by a hundred unfamiliarities, I’m filled with a hundred more insecurities and I’ve found myself overwhelmed.
I’m also filled with hope, and love, and compassion, and faith.
Faith that those Sunday visits, those phone calls for no other reason then saying hello, will commence again before we know it and we will have once again beaten Father Time and his stop watch, if only for now.
I pray for the day when I can get a good picture of all 3 of them ♡

The Buddha once said: “When you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky”. Adopt this approach to life, celebrating the world and treating everything as a miracle, and each moment will feel like a precious jewel 🙏
simple advice is the best advice 💖
My buddy told me the other day that most people die 10 years after retiring and then asked so why do they tell us to work for 40-50 years just to enjoy 10 years?
See our goal isn’t about making more money. Our goal is to live life on our own terms....like exploring the cool boutiques and shops of our new city in the middle of the day on a Friday 🙌🏼
My happy ray of sunshine ☀️💚
Ottawa is such a beautiful city! 🇨🇦 ... hoping I’ll be back sooner rather than later! 😉
These two. They have their moments where they drive me up the wall, but then they'll turn round and tell me that they love me and it's so hard to stay mad! Looking forward to the weekend with them. My girl has an eye appointment tomorrow and her friend's party so I think it'll be a day where we all split up. We'll no doubt have a family movie night to make up for that. Hmm, what film, though...? That's always where the argument is! Bring on tomorrow! #fridaynightfeels #snugasbugs
Can't believe we have a four month old already!!!
13lbs flat, very social and loves whistling (loves it when we whistle)! 🤣🤣
Pretty sure she wants to skip crawling and go straight to walking haha!!
Oh, and our 111 month old, Scooby!

GO ALL IN!!! We hold ourselves back in so many ways, by lacking self-confidence, by stepping down when we should be stepping up, and pulling back when we should really be LEANING IN!!! So many times we use the “ I don’t want too” but in our minds we really think “we can’t”!! I look back on certain opportunities and think.... Wow, had I just leaned in, instead of pulling back I could’ve aced that test or ran that race or got that position... ya see this is so much more to me than just a workout program it’s establishing that self worth that comes from leaning into the hard!!! Be a lighthouse, go after what you want, shine so bright, believe in yourself, and GO ALL IN because baby that’s what IM DOING and girrrrrrllll if I CAN DO IT.....
SO CAN YOU!!!!⭐️❤️
I remember holidays packed out in the living room, News Years Eve at your house is the reason it’s my favorite holiday. You were a rock & your soul will be forever missed. Keep the family grounded from above🙏🏽
May your soul rest peacefully Titi & your spirit live on🙏🏽👼🏾❤️
