Have you ever met someone who has completely changed you life and you can’t imagine your life without them?
We go through our life meeting all kinds of people day in day out. From acquaintances to ride or die. People can become your best friends and then disappear without a word. Everyone I believe, that comes into your life is for a reason. I look at the relationships around me and see why and the reasoning for the friendship/relationship to see what it’s taught me, to see what I’ve become from the relationship and to see what I’ve gained or lost. Then there are the people you meet who completely change your life and you all of the sudden can’t ever imagine what your life is like without them or what your life was like before you met them. I’m going to get more personal than I’ve ever been before, because this is important to me and a big part of the person I am becoming.
I’m going to leave this person un named as of now, but I wanna be able to look back on this years and years from now, no matter where our lives take us, I want to make sure I remember this, because I also believe how rare it is to find people who touch our hearts and souls at the same time. I met this person almost a year ago, and let me tell you it’s like our souls connected and I have never felt anything like it before. Life is complicated and I’ve learned nothing that’s worth having is ever easy. Fast forward till about September, He slowly became my other half… someone I couldn’t ever imagine life without. He changed my perspective on how I see the world, how I see traveling, how I see music and how I see myself. I’ve never met anyone that literally knows me like the back of my hand. One of my favorite things about him and I think this is one of the reasons we have so much fun together always is that everything is always an adventure with him. It feels like we’ve known each other a lot longer than a year, I feel like I’ve known him my entire life. His taste in music is impeccable, I feel like sometimes we speak to each other through songs and lyrics. He see’s life like an adventure itself, like a never-ending fairytale. He’s a goofball and a child at heart and always knows how to make me laugh till I cry. Though he doesn’t like to be the one in front of the camera, he’s a stud and knows it. Haha
For his birthday we spent the weekend away in Flagstaff, Arizona. It was much needed for the both of us to get away for a couple days and refresh ourselves. We stayed in this Airstream with a view too beautiful for words, it was freezing and snowy and amazing. We then went to Snowbowl on Friday, which I have not been snowboarding in like two years…. also never thought I would be snowboarding in Arizona… Haha Crazy right?! We of course took a bunch of photos and some video, But it was probably one of the funnest weekends I’ve had in a long time and honestly made me realize how much I miss adventuring like this and how important the people closest to me are. Creating content is all fine and dandy but I would rather create moments than content. We then spent that night being absolutely delirious in the airstream, laughing too hard with too much takeout Chinese.
Life is a series of moments that we play back and get nostalgia from later on in life. Most people are so caught up in getting everything for Instagram and the perfect shot, the perfect video, wearing the perfect outfit, looking like life is perfect all the time. Now I’m not going to deny I’m completely guilty of this too, we all are. This small trip defined the difference for me between creating content and creating memories/captured memories. Photos are so important to me, but not in the same way they are so needed for our generation… if that makes sense?
“Back to Reality” they say, but what if that wasn’t the case, what if you made it your reality. For just a moment all our cares and worries went away, what If we lived like that everyday. Only then would we be really living our lives to the fullest. How about…
“On to the next adventure…”
” We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone”
“The greater the love, the greater the chaos. It’s a given and that’s the secret.”
