As we become more and more dependent on our devices it's harder to establish a sense of self. I recognize that our attention spans have become shorter. We use our devices as a crutch to avoid potentially awkward situations. We use our devices to pass time, to take up time, to make time. I think it's time to take a break.
This beautiful collection came to me while I was laying in bed, at three am, after a breastfeeding session. I sat and thought about what it truly means to be a mom. How sacrifice has left me tired, hungry and dehydrated, yet oh so full of love. I thought about how this peaceful little being next to me who cried, pooped and ate, non-stop, was worth all the hassle. I thought about how the loud, silly, emotional toddler, sleeping in the room next to ours, was my greatest teacher, my first love. I thought about a garden of flowers. I thought about a breath of fresh air. I thought about self-care.
