Finding beauty in the everyday…
I definitely thought I would have a more glamorous life than I do now. I had dreams of far-flung countries and unrealistic jobs. But life conspired to bring me to this point. And to be honest, it’s tough but also beautiful. I think finding beauty in the everyday is part of enjoying where I am now. Below are a few tips that have worked for me:
- Get outside! Nothing can beat the big wide world. Nature is effortlessly glorious but urban spaces also offer so much to appreciate. Just look at this awesome place!
- Stop scrolling. I have found that staying away from social media has helped me so much to appreciate what is real.
- Learn from your children! Kids are the best at finding small things marvelous. And their constant enthusiasm and optimism are the best!
- Find natural highs. Nothing gives me a bigger appreciation for creation that a run. A runner’s high beats a wine high, hands down!
- Sleep enough and eat well. I know this is easier said than done. But I know that life feels much more beautiful when I’m eating well and not having to have caffeine transfusions just to function.
- Simplify your life. Stuff can be so suffocating. Get rid of what you don’t need and only get things that you really love or need.
