My life shines like a diamond
Some people want me to write more about "real life". They think I show to much of a "shiny side of life". And maybe it is shining to bright for some... I guess it depends on where you are at in life, and for me I see it differently.
Blogging has helped me to see and notice all the small things, the invisible everyday stuff, the ignored and simple things in life. The beautiful, graceful, delicate, amazing, loving, wonderful moments of living. Because life is here and now. Sitting in traffic sucks, but if your favorite tune is playing it can become a great moment anyway. Turn it up and sing along. Traffic won't move anyway.
It is like chasing affirmations for me, to share my moments of happiness. May it be a bunch of tulips, a sun set, my children, reflections about life, pretty leaves, yarn balls, warm and cozy messy beds, simmering pots of good food, happy coffee breaks and crochet moments... When chasing these moments I see them with open eyes, happiness is highlighted throughout my days and is suddenly placed at the front of the stage. To be seen. To be cherished. To be lived. To be felt.
It all becomes interesting. At times it is like a sensation of opening my eyes for the first time to really see life as it is. Having a muffin while helping Luca Bo with homework can be a treasured moment... Something to remember - him and me, together, working AND enjoying. Does that sound to shiny to you?
Because even though life is full of dull moments, duties and chores, tears, yelling, squabbles, worries and a million more hard things, we can make it shine through all that if we just "see" the moments of good. And suddenly hanging laundry becomes a lovely and happy moment in the day instead of boring and dreading chore... Because laundry is incredibly beautiful, flapping in the wind. And the air is so refreshing to breath in. And stretching my arms up feels so good. Do you get it?
Dare to feel happiness. Dare to see the beauty. Dare to create a life full of happy small moments. My blog is a real life story because I have chosen to see and cherish the moments of good to create a life that shines like a diamond - with faults and all. And I will continue to share the "shiny side of life" because it makes me feel good.
