After taking a few days off blogging to spend time with family and friends, it’s back to it. I hope you all had an excellent Christmas! (This post is inspired by Reverb10)
December 27 – Ordinary Joy
Our most profound joy is often experienced during ordinary moments. What was one of your most joyful ordinary moments this year?
I am the kind of person who is pretty quick to to take the everyday for granted. I get caught up in the monotony and the banal, and I tend to miss the real grace and joy that’s hidden beneath all that repetition.
But sometimes the best things in life are really the stuff we do every day. I get up early. I shower, eat some breakfast, and catch up on blogs and news while I watch something on Netflix. I’ll do this until it’s time to get ready and go to work.
It may not sound like a lot of fun, but I find that it really gets my day started off right. I feel awake an d refreshed, and not so groggy when I leave for work. It gives me food for thought, and it generally just makes me happy.
Maybe it’s lame and maybe it’s the same every morning, but it makes me happy, and it makes the long day at work a little more bearable.
