Birthday Love.

Happy Birthday seems like a small sentiment for such an enormous heart. A bold and generous heart with 42 years of life experiences.

I have not known Ned the longest, but I know him today. And he lives today like he lives each day – with gratitude and love and smiles and laughter. He is strong and passionate, sensitive and genuine, kind and compassionate. He knows what is important in life and has patience and grit and authenticity in each moment.

I am beyond grateful that in all of time and space and humanity, our paths crossed. Grateful that we have shared adventures, that we see the small things as big things, that we choose love in each moment. I am grateful for every experience along his way that has made him such an inspiration to me and everyone who knows him.

Happy Birthday, Ned. All the love in all the ways. Today. This moment of love and life. You. ❤️

In my Path. I’m Love.

In My Path. I’m Love. Our paths crossed. At the seawall. Here. A moment. A year. Time.

❤️ Although humans mark anniversaries, milestones, and athletic performance based on the framework of time, all we really have is right now, this day… one day at a time, like we said on that first day…which turned into a year.

❤️ Grateful for love here. Now. Grateful for the stringing together of precious moments to make up a passionate adventure. Grateful for you in my path. I’m Love. I’m Us. ❤️🌊

Grief is Love You Want to Give.

“Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give, but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go” ~ Jamie Anderson

❤️ This photo is genuine. A real smile, a cheers to September, to this moment, to connecting with people. This is being LOVE. Being Love also takes the form of tears, of grief, that can seep out without warning or reason. Loss. My dad. My best friend, JD. Family. Grief. A reflection of a connection that has been broken.

❤️ “What is to give light must endure burning” – Viktor Frankl. …. 🌊 The sunrise this morning was fire. The deepest colors I have witnessed with my eyes. Perhaps it was the depth of feeling I was keeping pace with as I ran with my heart, processing some tears that came last night.

❤️ I thought of grief as the ocean; it comes in waves, ebbing and flowing, sometimes the water is calm, sometimes fierce and unrelenting. I just keep swimming. And I love hard. Because it is the only way to Love.

This is why you are alive…

I see you.

“We are here to love each other. That is why you are alive. That is what life is for.” – Maya Angelou

This sentiment is not new. There is a reason it is quoted and stated in various forms…humans are here to BE Love. Love is not an emotion, but a state of Being.

Being Love is choosing to see the light in someone else. Being seen is connection and depth and vulnerability. “I see you.” …Three small words… All the big Love. The small things are the big things.

Be Love.

❤️
