Now that February has arrived and I’m over the winter blahs for sure, I’ve made up my mind that 365 DAYS A YEAR, I’M GOING TO celebrate the EVERY DAY things in life . Life has made me painfully aware a little bit at a time that we've much less of it than we tend to think we do.
Each day I ‘LL rejoice in the blessings of God and the life God has given me.
I am going to try to do this by including activities and actions geared toward making the day special in some way. Sometimes it's simple things like putting new pictures in picture frames, going out for breakfast, or changing my schedule to include some playtime instead of just work.
Take a moment and write down 25 - 50 (or more!) things that delight you. How can you bring more of these things into your everyday life?
Beautiful things and beautiful moments are all around us just waiting for us to join the celebration. For me, it is the simple things that hold the most beauty
We can celebrate the gift of life by living the next 24 hours without trying to tackle all of life’s problems at once. Realize that none of us is indispensable and that simply doing the best we can for this day is the best we can do
We were blessed with eyes to see the colors of the rainbow, the rich red of a rose, or the shimmering glow of sunlight filtering autumn leaves.
God gave us the gift of smell with which to delight in the fragrance of wildflowers, the exhilarating smell of delicious fruits
God gave us the gift of hearing so that we can admire the chorus of frogs, the chirping of baby birds, and the soothing sound of a mother singing to her baby
Even a smile or a hug is a celebration of life
No more winter doldrums for me…I’m now a party girl once more and celebrating life.
I keep updating you as I continue to find those blessings along the way.
Have a Merry Monday!
