How To Have A More Meaningful Day

How To Have A More Meaningful Day

Have you ever wondered how to have more meaningful experiences throughout your day?  I am a homeschooling, stay-at-home, work-from-home mom, who also happens to go on tour every once and a while so my life can lean towards chaos. I often find it hard to find sacred beauty in the everyday moments of my life.  But let me be totally honest, even in seasons of more regularity and predictability, I also struggled to find what I call "everyday sacred" moments.  How about you?  (gosh I hope I am not alone here).

Recently this little phrase popped out of my mouth and really got my attention.  "Creativity is my treat."  Yeah just like that 3pm pick me up, a day at the spa or a decadent piece of cake!  I am learning to take a break every 90 minutes and enjoy something beautiful.  The best part of this practice is that it can literally be anything that turns your heart to beauty.  I want you to know at first it may feel funny, but friends there is beauty everywhere and you were created to bask in it.  I call it the reintroduction of wonder to the daily grind.  Here are some examples:

1. Fresh cup of coffee in the sunlight
2. Read a poem, even if you don't understand it at all
3. Take a 10 minute walk
4. Read my kids a book, with blankets and tea
5. Add a little to an ongoing colouring page
6. Call your grandmother
7. Refill the diffuser and enjoy it

Lets go find this beauty together!
