today: into focus

“Identity is such a crucial affair that one shouldn’t rush into it.”
-David Quammen

Today was One of Those Days, capital O, T and D. So I walked the dog, me needing the walk as much as she. Life needed to come into focus. I held out my hands thinking about all these roles:
daughter
sister
friend
girlfriend
photographer
nanny
traveler
runner
writer

Sometimes I allow myself to get overwhelmed, and today was one of those days. It was not a good overwhelmed. It was, however, a moment.

And I let the dog run in the field. And I took some photographs (for another day). And I remembered that first I am a Child of God, capital C, capital G. And I am loved. And we are going to be okay. All of us. So I breathed a sigh of relief, and remembered I don’t have to have it all figured out. I can just take the next step. Then the next. Tis’ so sweet to trust…
