Things that take your breath away
I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world- Louis Armstrong.
To cut to the chase, my blog was hacked and I was locked out until I could prove a whole series of things to get it back online.
The height of all things frustrating.
I questioned if I could even be bothered because blogging takes so much time and at the moment there is no benefit, but the creative release it brings me. I had to weigh all the pros and cons. Clearly, the pros ruled everything else.
so here we are.
When I complain at the mundane things of life which don’t even hold any weight in light of eternity, I wish the hand of God would come from the sky and send thunder to silence me up.
But I am not God, so imprint getting to do that
But that’s not going to happen, because He is better than that.
That is the thing with beautiful things. The things of the world that make you think on eternal things and that put you back in awe and gratitude.
I’ve been practicing being more positive and intentionally grateful every day. I realized that I was becoming quite negative and complaining about unimportant things in life and it was affecting my life.
That realization helped me make the decision to be intentionally positive about the way I choose to look at life. It took me having to distance myself from a few people who I allowed to keep me in that space because for some reason some people live off negativity.
I took these glorious images down the road one winter evening.
Nothing can trump sunsets in winter. The cold definitely intensifies the experience.
If you’re having a bad day, step outside.
Nature is wonderful. Life is beautiful.
