Bored or Blessed?

I came across this today and it doesn’t resonate with me at all. I’m always promoting the act of cherishing the simple, the mundane, the “ordinary” in every day whether we have a very busy life full of work, travel, kids, appointments, plans…..or a simple, laid back life with very little going on, no big job, no big goals, no big celebrations…. Some people actually prefer the simple, seemingly boring details of life over “big” things like demanding jobs, traveling, holidays, vacations….it doesnt mean it’s a boring life. Just because we acknowledge small or ordinary things as blessings doesnt mean we must have nothing else going for us that we have to grasp onto anything we can in desperation(anyway, thats a good thing!). One way to live isn’t better than another way. One way may just be better for someone else. Whatever floats your boat!Β 

Also, what if the people mentioned above really do have incredibly boring lives or “horrible” lives full of misfortune? At least they have the good sense to still appreciate any good thing there still is no matter how “small!” The ability to feel blessed and see extraordinary in the ordinary, that itself is a blessing! β€πŸ˜€ If we see all the “stupid shit” as amazing, well then good for us!

Β Here are some sweet & simple blessings:

There is so much beauty in each & every day, each age, every stage, every situation, season, problem… and if we acknowledge it, embrace it, celebrate it, and share it, we are truly blessed! πŸ˜€β€

Go ahead write out your own list! I was already happy but now after writing this I feel as if I can just float away into a blue sky full of fluffy white clouds (another blessing!) or drift through a gray rainy sky (more blessings!) Writing a list of blessings\gratitude list, really does do wonders! ❀

Much love & light to you, always!
