>Making the most of every second


We all know that life is precious. Well you do when you have either a) lost someone you loved and/or b) reached a certain age.

I have been lucky so far in my life not to have lost many loved ones, but unfortunately many people I love dearly have lost people they cared intensely about and their grief brought home just how short our time on this earth can be.

Spending the day frantically searching for toddler sized furniture for my daughter’s third birthday party made me realise just how fast the first three years of her life have flown by. I remember falling pregnant with her (not the actual moment of conception people, but finding out she was ‘in’ me) as if it were only a few months ago. Although filled with nostalgia, I was also filled with dread.

Dread that the next three years would fly past with just as much lightning speed without me having a chance to properly document her life and fulfil my own.

Today, I decided to make an active point to make every second count. To do something everyday that I can be proud of or that is noteworthy. Something that actively helps propel me in the direction I want for my (and my family’s) life.

On the way home I took these pictures. They may not look like Kodak moments but to me they represent the following:

Don’t miss out on the beautiful things around you

See potential in everything

Make every step count

    >What a lovely post I can not agree more. I try and take regular photographs of things we do so the children have lots of memories to look back on.

    >So true! Time goes so quickly, my little one is 5 now and I often sit and think gosh that's gone so fast.

    I think these days life can be so busy that we rush around and we often forget to appreciate what is around us…love that rose picture.
