Your family, your memories
I heard it said once that sometimes, memories of a moment are better than the actual moment itself. The reason is, that as you are experiencing something, anything can happen. Anything can go wrong. We are wired to survive, so we’re always scanning our surroundings for possible danger. We’re alert and ready to act if something happens that might cause us pain or harm. This is why ...

For 'A letter to my future self' in Earshaw's Magazine Gemma was asked to write to herself at any age and time in the past. It became an excercise that brought her valuable new insights on what to focus on in everyday life. Are you often rushing through life? Maybe you'll recognize her story as well.
The year is 2010. You’re living in Amsterdam with your husband, and you’re about to become first-time parents to a little boy you’ll name Mikkel. You don’t know it yet, but you’ll have two more boys and be a family of five just three years from now. The journey into motherhood introduces you to amazing highs and hectic lows—everyday life feels multiplied by 10,000! You have no idea what you’re doing one moment to the next.

As I was watching our boys running towards the sea, I realized... growing is just a small step from going. Going to school, going to a friends' house to play, going on school camp, going away to college. I know, I'm getting way ahead of things, but honestly I have not met a mom with kids at that age that hasn't commented on how time had flown by. How she still can't believe her little baby is now 19 years old. How empty the house is now that they're of on their own. For me, being aware of how fast it goes helps me stay present. I try and really watch them running to the sea, jumping away from the breaking waves, their moves and expressions, giggles and ...Read More
