THE BEST IS HERE RIGHT NOW

My fave birthday photo and words from the heart…

I realise I’ve mentioned the ole b’day a bit recently, it’s not “everyone let’s gloriously celebrate Jacq ohhh yeaaaa”, rather, I think I’ve been quietly processing something within. I turned 35 this year, and whilst I am not saying by any means that I am old, hell no, but, for the first time in this era of 30’s I feel kinda different.

I’m not sure how to make much sense of it right now, and so maybe I’ll stop trying to and just voice how I feel, maybe that will help me understand it, maybe some of you can relate…

I’ve recently felt a real internal shift, emotional and I think also a biological one too. I feel now more than ever the preciousness of time, because all of a sudden here I am at 35 and it feels like the past 7 years have flown faster than ever? To be honest for a long time I still felt I was 28 (ain’t nothing wrong with FEELING 28 either ha!) and maybe for the first part of my 30’s I was still working through and figuring so much stuff out. But now as I enter 35 I feel like I am about to write a huge new chapter of life you know?

I can’t slow down time, that’s the impossible, but if time flies this fast then what can I be doing right NOW to be most connected to this moment. I feel I’ve been making the most of life, but now my body, my head and my heart are asking what more can I do? This internal shift I guess you could call it, is crazily encouraging me to write my greatest chapter yet. Does that make sense?

So this birthday pic is a special memory for me to start my 35 – walking barefoot, in the middle of Barossa in what was a whole week of new and insane food and wine experiences thanks to my @jacobscreekwine family, I’m wearing a beautiful dress @witcheryfashion and embracing my womanhood, and my lovely man is taking the photo, a photo which he decided he wanted to put me in and somewhat pushed me a little beyond what I might usually feel comfortable doing but in the spirit of making the most of each and every moment I leant into it. 

You know how people say or you see written ‘the best is yet to come’, well, I feel the best is here right now, it really is just what you want to make of it.
