I had some epiphanies over the summer. Some are stupid, some are serious, but all were documented in my camera roll.
This is the moment in which I declared to my husband that, “I will be having a sno-cone party for my 40th Birthday”.
I can’t decide what I like more, what the shirt says or that it was being sold in a teen clothing store.
This is the moment I realized I’d much rather play golf with my husband than go to a nice dinner. Even if I’m really terrible at golf.
I have a very hard time at home, alone, with the boys on long summer days. It’s like I want to crawl the walls!!! I’m not saying I’m not thankful for the opportunity, I’m just saying it’s hard. I was talking to my sister about my predicament and she told me that I just need to live moment by moment. She gave me this idea pictured above. So, living in the moment of seeing “what sticks”, I let them throw snacks, boxes and wrapping paper up there. Living moment by moment has almost allowed me to forget about the fits and/or meltdowns that happen. I’ve just been able to grab myself a coke and regroup. It was an epiphany.
It’s official, my favorite part about the blog is meeting new friends. My new friends, readers from Atlanta, introduced themselves to me while we were all on vacation in Florida. Most of the time when readers introduce themselves they say something like, “I hope you don’t think this is weird and I’m not stalking you, but are you C. Style?”. Here’s my response, “How could you be stalking me when I’m the one who puts up a thousand pictures of myself on the internet. I mean really, let’s be honest, putting up a million pictures of yourself is kinda weird!” -ha!
In this moment, I realized technology is really good for my sanity and their safety. Technology is good… and safe!
In this moment I realized that before I had kids I knew what I liked to do and I did it. After I had kids I had such little free time, or “me time”, that when it was given to me I didn’t know what to do with it. It was like hmmm, what do I like to do again? In this moment I realized I love to water ski. It was an epiphany.
In this moment I realized that, if possible, I will never let my life be without a porch swing.
This summer marked 10 years since my Mom passed away. She was an artist. In honor of my Mom, my sister had this great idea to go see James Turrell’s skyspace at Rice University. In this moment, I realized how much I enjoy art. The structure is called Twilight Epiphany…
