This is Real Life

Here’s the thing….

Life is well…..ordinary. 

If you look up “real life” in the dictionary it is defined as: life as it is lived in reality, involving unwelcome as well as welcome experiences. Just like the facts of life theme song used to say, “You take the good, you take the bad..”

It’s ok to admit our lives are not always likable worthy on Facebook. 

Sometimes, life is SO ordinary, we miss the blessings tucked away in the minutes of each day.

Maybe you too are feeling like ordinary isn’t special.  Isn’t Facebook worthy or Instagram worthy.

Well, your life may be ordinary. But you don’t have to look at it in ordinary ways. Notice the details.

Here’s what an ordinary week looked like in my life this past February: Sending my fella’s off to the store (i love their smiles!), a surprise birthday party for my man (I thought I did good decorating a hunting theme), a reminder given to me (in the shape of a flower) by my son that he still loves me even if he’s getting older (yes, he picked a flower for me at the park liked he used to do when he was itty bitty), visiting the Lego exhibit on the weekend and having my son make his own creation and put it on display. I think it’s an all -terrain armored speeder? You never know when you will need something like that right?  And last, but not ever the least, creating something lovely in my studio while my crock pot was cooking up a new chicken taco recipe that I am sure has been on Pinterest forever but am just now finding! This is my life and I love it.

Love your life today.

Live it well.

And notice the details.

It may just surprise you!
