Life happens…

1 Jan

Life happens, it happens when we least expect it. 

It happens when we stop thinking about it

When we allow it to breathe

When we are not afraid

 

My life is not extraordinary, it is not amazingly good, bad or great either

My life is just the way its supposed to be

Imperfect at times

And sometimes-remarkably perfect 

 

Beautiful

Sneaky

 

These are the moments that have driven and shaped my life.

These are my extraordinary moments
