Write 31 Days 2015: Ordinary Grace
Hunting for Beauty and Grace in Ordinary Moments
I believe there are two ways to go through life: letting the days pass by, always waiting for the next best thing, or living in the moment, noticing the beautiful, ordinary blessings of life. I intentionally chose to live my life the second way. It’s so very easy to let the days pass. When I do this, I find myself stuck in ruts and, more often than not, in a bad woe-is-me mood.
On the other hand, when I lean into each moment and hunt for the beauty, love, and grace in my everyday life, I’m so much more grateful. Therefore, I’m much happier and content. I find even in the struggle and the hard days, there’s beauty. There’s grace. There’s love.
Write31 Days is a challenge every October to write and post every day. This year, for 31 days, I’ve decided to intentionally seek out those moments of everyday grace and share them with you. Come back here every day to find the link to a new post. Join in and tell me what you’re grateful for today.

So True! Love the idea of hunting for joy to increase our gratefulness. Following along from write 31 days, I am writing on 31 days of Faith xx
