There is a bridge between us,
And I don’t know why,
Neither one of us will cross it,
To get to the other side.
You are all that I want,
I can not deny,
But every time I try to reach you,
There is something that holds me back on the inside.
Will we stay forever this way,
Can we get over our pride,
Or will we force ourselves,
To keep dancing with our hands tied?
It’s starting to feel tedious,
I will not lie,
This never ending war,
Between you and I.
I’m afraid if we don’t stop now,
Our love will only die.
Does your pride ever get in the way of things?
July Gold🍂Grass is an often overlooked, much underrated plant. I love it's changing colours, from the impossibly bright yellow green of fresh spring growth, through golds, reds, and the bleached soft browns of winter. It's textures, from softest feathers to sharp cutting blades. And right now, the soothing ripples of tall ripe stems waving in the breeze.
If you asked me 10 years ago what I'd be doing today, I would 100% wholeheartedly tell you that I'd be a doctor. THAT'S the *only* thing I ever wanted to be "when I grew up"!
But God had different plans for me. I found out quickly that college just wasn't for me. It wasn't that I couldn't do the school work, it was just that what my 'dream' of who I wanted to be didn't feel right anymore.
My brain, being logical, was pulling me toward continuing my education and fulfilling that desire I had since I was little (I mean, duh you did all this work and spent all this money to even get this far - what are you thinking Lizz!), but my heart was pulling me in a different direction.
That direction has led me here today, and put me on a platform with an audience that I can YELL FROM THE ROOFTOPS that it's okay if you change your mind. It's okay if you go in a different direction. We're all out here trying to battle the currents and the tide, when we should really be letting it lead us in the right direction...for us! What's your heart telling you?
I WANT TO KNOW: what did you want to be "when you grew up"? Of course, I wanted to be a doc, but now I'm capturing beautiful souls on camera. My husband? He's *always* wanted to be a Meteorologist on TV - and he's living that dream now! It's so funny how things play out in our lives. What about you?
