There is truly something good and beautiful about every day. When we take a minute to step back, to realize that we are part of something more... something bigger than ourselves... we start to see all of the greatness in life.
And believe me.. there is a whole lot of great if you never give up looking.
"Every day may not be good... but there's something good in every day."
Everyone has off days.
Everyone has those days where staying in bed seems like the only option.
Everyone has those days where nothing seems to go right.
Everyone has those days that make us doubtful of the world's beauty and goodness.
Every day is not going to be perfect. (Something I can't seem to grasp very thoroughly). Things are going to go wrong, flaws and imperfection are an inevitable part of life. But on the contrary- a lot of things are still going to go right in life.
The funny thing is... even if 99% of our day is incredible, the little 1% that goes awry can throw everything off balance. Isn't it crazy how we focus so much on the negatives in life- and rarely acknowledge that these negative moments may actually be few and far between?
One of the great things about this blog is that I try to be honest. I try to tell it like it is, rarely sugar-coating situations, and I think I do a decent job of sticking to the (sometimes painful) truth. Isn't the truth, in itself, beautiful though? There is something so sincere and real about reading the truth. There is something that we can all connect to in truthful statements about life. It is my hope is that you recognize that life isn't about trying to avoid the 1% of negative, imperfect moments in life.
Life is about living to appreciate the 99% of incredible, beautiful moments.
"But let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious."
1 Peter 3:4
