“A good life happens when you stop and are grateful for the ordinary moments that so many of us just steamroll over to try to find those extraordinary moments.” – Brene’ Brown
A few weeks ago, we posted a blog with an example day. It was full of just ordinary, everyday life moments. However, the everyday, ordinary life moments are where we spend most of life. Sometimes I find myself waiting for the next big thing. I can’t wait for the toddler to be potty-trained! I can’t wait for Christmas to come next year! I can’t wait for this or that! But it is important to slow down and enjoy those seemingly mundane moments.
Life is lived in the ordinary moments.
So next time you’re sitting on the couch, thinking of all the things you have to do, take time to pet your cat who has sneaked up in your lap. Enjoy a cup of coffee while enjoying the news. Take your dog on a nice walk. Enjoy everyday life! Life is beautiful even when nothing exciting or new is happening! Maybe I won’t make a bunch of resolutions or goals this year. Maybe I’ll spend this year working and taking care of my family with nothing extravagant or exciting, but I’m going to savor every minute! Even when I’m scrubbing applesauce off the wall…or changing yet another diaper…or helping a puppy recover from parvo.
Life is beautiful!
