The idea of liberation means being set free. I remember exact moments in my life where I prayed to be set free and/or times when I knew it had happened. One such moment occurred just a few years ago.
I had three siblings that I had never really met or talked to. It bothered me that I was left out of their lives for a long time as though I didn't exist. I think it impaired my ability to live beautifully and happily in the moment. There was deep pain that I had buried. That changed when my sister reached out. Within a short time, I had met all my siblings. It was life-changing.
I pulled out this photo and decided to scrap my feelings about it. There was a moment when we were driving away from hotel and I was looking out the window. I felt healed. I quietly cried happy tears knowing that I could be free from the pain. The title of this page came from a simple place, You Cared.
I have scrapped several pages about this happening and the adventures that followed. This page was meant to document that moment where I felt peace deep within. I clearly remember it today and I hope this page always helps me go back in time.
I used the butterfly to symbolize freedom and the beauty in the moment. I purposefully scattered objects across the page, keeping it light and airy.
It is a page I know I will go back to many times.
