I Don't Want To Be Afraid

Yesterday I got out on a paddle board for the first time. It felt so good to be up on the water but when I looked down into the river, I got a little scared.

I have grown up on the beach but I have always been afraid of deep water because I am afraid of what swims below me while I float above. I don't like the unknown. My logical mind knows that any fish that swims below does not look at me like dinner but I can't help but feel the panic most of the time, when swimming in deep water.

As I paddled I had the internal battle of exhilaration and fear, wanting to go faster but afraid I may fall, wanting to try a little yoga but fear I may fall. As I paddled back to shore and rationalized with myself "what's really the worst that could happen?" I had a realization.

I don't want to allow fear to stop me from experiencing adventures in life.

The battle continues, I will let you know how I make out.

These Days | July 2017


Summer has arrived and these days

We have daily battles to put on sunscreen.

We dip our toes in the water.

We stay up way too late.

Luke goes to bed with dirty feet.

We run through splash pads.

As Elizabeth hits milestones, Tyler and I reminisce about Luke at the same age.

We live in a bit of chaos as we renovate our main floor bathroom but we surprisingly don't feel stressed. It will be done by Christmas;)

We can never have enough beach towels, what is with beach towels, they always go missing.

There is sand on the floor.

I feel like I am always telling someone to shut the door.

I pray a lot while nursing Elizabeth.

Routine does not exist.

We go go go for a few days then crash for a few days.

We can hear the boats on the river from our house.

Lizzy is sleeping through the night and I have been waking up before everyone and its my favourite time of the day.

When Luke and I hang alone it's so so sweet.

I love to watch Elizabeth's face as we look out the window each morning.

I feel so blessed it scares me.

There are moments in these days when I try really hard to capture a picture and seal it in my heart so I can remember it forever.

I am grateful for these days.
