This really hit for me this morning💡 & I thought the topic of romance (even in a non-traditional sense) was a great topic to kickoff Valentine’s Weekend!
In the current world we live in, where we may feel stuck on the hamster wheel, or especially sad that Covid and the winter months are isolating, this is an excellent perspective.
How can you take the everyday little things (that at times feel like the normal steps of Groundhog Day) and acknowledge them as blessings?
This is what I’ve started doing: I take my amazing little notebook from Amazon, and start jotting things down! The great thing is, is that you don’t need this little booklet to get started! Grab a piece of paper or open your Notes section of your phone and begin listing. I’ll start:
That took me about 3 minutes and I’m already excited and grateful for the day ahead. Now it’s your turn… jot down a few things that may feel a little mundane and remind yourself that you’re BLESSED to have these mundane tasks in your life. I’ll leave you with this…
If we can appreciate the moments we’re in, they add up to a day of gratitude and acceptance for where we currently are, and that will help us begin looking forward to each new day.
