Born or Chosen Family

Today, May 30th is about family for me. My husband and I decided to make our separate lives a family on this day a few years ago. No, it is not our wedding anniversary. That came later. This day we made a decision to ignore anything that did not align with love.

Today would have been my Granny’s and her twin’s 94th birthday. One thing that I can say for sure is that they also aligned their lives with love and family.

We are all pieces of families. We are spouses, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, mothers, fathers, and so on. No human is a singular being. Although we yearn for autonomy, individuality in self.

We choose to isolate, but that changes nothing. We are all connected.

We must choose to either ignore the connections or embrace who we are, family.
