This is Why We Are Here.

 

Rachel Brathen

Today I have cried.

And laughed. Practiced yoga. Gone swimming. Soaked in the sunshine.

Talked to my mom. Read an entire book. Eaten a huge plate of fruits. Cuddled with my husband.

Cried some more.

And laughed.

We are on our honeymoon and my grandmother has passed away and I am okay.

The universe is telling me: This is life. Feel it all!

And I have reminded myself today that life never gives you anything you cannot handle.

Trust. Endings and beginnings.

This is why we are here. We love and we say goodbye and then we love again.

Life happens and all we can do is let go and move forward and love will return.

Love will always return.

Nothing is certain and nothing is forever and at some point we have to say goodbye to make space for new hellos.

So cherish your loved ones. Tell them you love them.

Do it now.

Love elephant and want to go steady?
