Last night I hit the couch I was sitting on with open-handed fists and exclaimed, “I am living my BEST life, and I dang well know it!”
Well, okay....😳 those next to me seemed to say. Okay, one did say. 🤣
I can name the wilderness in a New York minute when I find myself walking (okay crawling) through it, but have always been way too timid to name the promised land. Maybe because it always felt a breath away from leaving or not real or fill-in-the-blank _____. 👈🏻👈🏻👈🏻
So in all of the lessons of the past six years. How to walk and survive the wilderness. Rising after an epic facedown season. Letting go. Healing. Owning a lionheart. - - ALL of the lessons...maybe you round the corner and meet yourself in the mirror only to exclaim, “I am living my BEST life!” because you are...you know it...and “BEST life” isn’t the perfection you were always striving for in you and others and “it”...but it is in the REALNESS that you find around every corner when you are just IMPERFECTLY you loving the imperfect that surround you who have NEVER EVER looked as beautiful to you as they do RIGHT NOW.
It isn’t until you start letting go of striving and perfection that you realize that it is a VICE that is KILLING you. Killing. You.
So life is no more hectic or crazy or insane than NOW, but it feels as sweet and beautiful as it EVER has...and that my friends is the gift of #perspective with a giant side of HEALING.
...and that my dear friends is the lesson in the breathtaking season that is Fall. 🍁
Happy Friday!!! Love up on your family + friends today. Tell somebody you love them. Smile when you see a stranger. Tomorrow is not promised and we all could use some extra loving! I hope you all have a blessed and productive day.

It’s layering season, are you ready? New in the shop (link in bio) this vintage 1980s pastel window pane plaid blazer. It’s a wool blend so it’s perfect to keep you warm and cozy vintage style. The vintage 1980s jumpsuit I’m wearing is mine. Sorry, not sorry. 😘 But, I do have some amazing jumpsuits coming soon.

...such a long autumn... we had and it's hard to believe it is going to be winter really soon, but I'm sure we can process that because it's always nice waiting for what's coming next.🙄☺️ #studioreta#travelmood

🇩🇰 Man siger om naturfotografer, at vi er den eneste type mennesker i verden, der kan se ud på en helt skyfri, blå himmel og sige: “Øv..”. Vi vil langt hellere have farverige, dramatiske og stemningsfulde skyer 😄⛅️ Personligt syntes jeg, at en rolige og kølige blå himmel er den perfekte kontrakst til de mere vilde og varme efterårsfarver 🍂 / 🇬🇧 Nature photographers are some of the few people in the world, who can look at a perfect blue sky and think: “Dammit..”. We usually prefer a sky filled with colourful and dramatic clouds 😄⛅️ Personally I think the calm and cool blue sky is the perfect contrast to the wild and warm autumn colours 🍂

دلت از سن و سالت میگیرد
کودکی که به هر بهانه ای
به آغوش غمخواری پناه میبرد
بزرگ که باشی...
باید بغض های زیادی را
بی صدا دفن کنی...
