excerpt from my journal no. 1

Monday, August 10, 2015

Hello beauties, I am going to try something new and I'd love your feedback on it. I am going to start putting journal excerpts up on my blog once a week (if I write that week). I think this is a cool and unique idea, and I really hope you feel the same way.

When I was little, 
there was a branch on the pine 
tree by my swing set. 
The branch was low enough
 that my feet would hit it, 
if I swung high enough. 
I loved swinging and hitting the branch, 
it was one of my favorite summer activities.

Than, one winter 
my beloved tree branch 
broke off due to the weight from the snow.

I realized that the tree branch is a metaphor for life.
The tree lost something, maybe it's soul or arm; 
either way the tree still lives.

We lose things or people in our lives, 
but just like the tree we still live. 
We get through things just like a simple tree.

I hope you enjoyed this excerpt from my journal because there is more to come. I'll see you soon!!

xoxo, Aubrey
