The end of the week is here! And while I am definitely a TGIF gal these days, I also know it’s a sticky rut to get out of. So, here are the things that inspire me all days of the week and remind me that happiness isn’t just confined to the weekend.
“Celebrate today for its simple joys and tiny miracles” ~T.T. Asai
Kayaking the river never ceases to create awe-inspiring discoveries. And who says you can’t make room for a quick adventure during the week? It’s all about making the time or just doing something rather than vegging out in front of the TV (which sometimes is a joy within itself) Thanks M for being my adventuring partner in crime any day, everyday.
Snagged this precious piece from James Avery Jewelry’s Pinterest page. I keep falling in love every time I look at it. This would be a perfect reminder to always keep writing, no matter what.
Speaking of James Avery Jewelry, this little guy. AKA Tweet-Tweet. Can’t stop. Too much warm-fuzzy. Seriously though, with this little bird perched on my finger it’s hard to take life too seriously.
Every evening that I get out of my car to go inside or vice versa, I find myself gazing off into the sunset. It’s the sun’s promise of tomorrow.
I leave you with this thought because the sheer stubborn drive to continue is the one thing that inspires me every day without a doubt. No matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done, you are here now and you are a steady progression of yourself. You can’t be alive and not be growing even if it seems to be at a snail’s pace. When I graduated college, I really thought the world had ended because it was the only thing I had ever been good at. But now I know that my life has truly just begun.
I’ve watched people I love stumble and fall and “fail” but the fact they are still doing the best they can– well that inspires me to keep going too. So wherever you may be and no matter how many failures you have at your back or on your doorstep, you’re different than you were five seconds ago sheerly because you exist.
Have a happy weekend!
