Messy Bits

For as long as I can remember summers have been filled with family, friends, Kanakuk, Saturday’s waffles of wisdom led by my dad, the lake, and traveling.  Thinking back to previous memories has made me quite nostalgic for summer vacations spent in various European cities, Morocco, and many other beautiful countries. As my Husband and I have begun talking about our future trips (and by future I mean we have not made any definitive plans, just dreamed and made loose plans) to other countries we have begun watching every movie we own that takes place over sees and across the pond. One of my favorites is ‘Letters to Juliet.‘  While I love that whole movie, there is one line that specifically stands out to me.

“Life is the messy bits…”

I love this. As a very goal oriented person I sometimes find myself living in the future and not embracing the here and now. I want to see the end goal. But this line from ‘Letter’s to Juliet’ is a beautiful reminder. Life is the messy bits… not just the final result (Tweet This)

    Love this! I love this movie and have heard that line so many times but it had never really designated like this with me. Thank you for sharing!

    And for the record, I am right there with you dreaming about traveling. Even though I just returned from abroad I am already ready to get back!
