From the car seat to the drivers seat. Learned stick shift on the Serengeti and will learn traffic in LA! Congrats Jacks❤️
There comes a day, somewhere in the middle of every woman’s life, when Mother Nature herself stands behind us and wraps her arms around our shoulders, whispering “It’s time.” “You have taken enough now. It’s time to stop growing up, stop growing older and start growing wiser and wilder. There are adventures still waiting on you and this time, you will enjoy them with the vision of wisdom and the companionship of hindsight, and you will really let go. It’s time to stop the madness of comparison and the ridicule of schedule and conformity and start experiencing the joys that a life, free of containment and guilt, can bring.” She will shake your shoulders gently and remind you that you’ve done your bit. You’ve given too much, cared too much, you’ve suffered too much. You’ve bought the book, as it were, and worn the t-shirt. Worse, you’ve worn the chains and carried the weight of a burden far too heavy for your shoulders. “It’s time” she will say. “Let it go, really let it go and feel the freedom of the fresh, clean spaces within you. Fill them with discovery, love and laughter. Fill yourself so full you will no longer fear what is ahead and instead you will greet each day with the excitement of a child.” She will remind you that if you choose to stop caring what other people think of you and instead care what you think of you, you will experience a new era of your life you never dreamed possible. ‘It’s time’ she will say… “to write the ending, or new beginning, of your own story.” - Donna Ashworth @lolosilvera #littlebeachhousemalibu

This is me two and a half decades ago at the beginning of discovering my shadow. "I've always been a big believer that you can't really move into the future unless you have a complete solid basis of understanding and empathy about the past". @stevenspielberg_official
Try this writing prompt - grab a journal or piece of paper. Imagine you are the bored Alice in Wonderland sitting around waiting in the grass for something to happen. Suddenly a white rabbit runs by saying "I'm late!" You follow him. Where do you go? What and who do you find? I'm finding lots in the upside-down place. ❤️
"The world shifts and the climate alters. Safe passage cannot be bought. We have no holy passport to protect us. And so we venture forward, fragile maps in hand, flying our banners of courage and hope" @call_the_midwife @lolosilvera
Prom night. Beautiful. Blessed.
Says it all.
Maybe love is just the majesty of being invited to touch another's skin.
