Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. 💛 If you’ve been reading my blog for the past few weeks, then you’ve seen that I shared a blog post every day for the entire month of October. I wanted to do this because I did the exact same thing this time last year, and I had an awesome time! I’m happy to say that it has now been a fun blogging tradition two years in a row. 🙂
Hey there! I hope you’re having a fantastic day. ❤ I have a fun collaboration post to share with you! Last week, I met a lovely new blogger named Autumn, and we immediately became friends! To celebrate the fact that she just reached 50 followers (check out that post here), we decided to team up and host a Q&A session on each other’s blogs!
Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. 💕 For the last several years, I have enjoyed using Pinterest to find inspirational quotes. On that trek to find motivation and encouragement (even though I also consider Pinterest-browsing to be a lazy activity 😂👌🏼), I have found a lot of favorite quotes! However, there has been one quote-writer in particular that has stood out to me the most, and her name is Morgan Harper Nichols.
Hi there! Happy Sunday to you. 😊💛 This is going to be a quick, fun post that I’m sharing with you on this fine weekend. I spent yesterday afternoon going to different stores with my dad (which was very enjoyable, by the way!), so I wasn’t able to do much in relation to blogging. As I write this, it is now 10:44 PM my time on Saturday night and I’d love to go to bed. 😂👌🏼 This is blogging dedication at its finest, y’all! (I’m suddenly very southern 😳😂)
Today is the day that some are taking their first breath.
Today is the day that others will take their last.
Today is the day that marks a beautiful turning point in the lives of countless people.
Today is the day that disaster will strike for those we’ll never personally know.
Today is the day that some will spend carrying out the mundane tasks their lives require.
Today is the day that others celebrate the fact that they’re simply ALIVE.
Today is the day that we should never take for granted.
Today is the day we can recognize that millions of others were not as fortunate.
Today is the day we should begin living.
Go live. Today is the day.
I wrote this post after thinking deeply about the fact that the present is just that – a gift, a blessing! I’m always looking ahead at what is to come, what excitement my future will hold, instead of recognizing the fact that I’m still here.
I have good physical health; I’m in a great place mentally and emotionally; I’m in a supportive family situation; I have all the necessities I require on a daily basis available to me …
I am grateful beyond words.
I am not simply alive, although that in itself is something I marvel over. Something as simple as the sinus infections I get almost yearly, which are complications of the common cold, would have done away with me years ago if it weren’t for the antibiotics brilliant people have created.
So, I have been saved countless times from minor disasters and complications of difficulties … but I also feel truly alive.
There’s a difference between breathing, moving, functioning normally, and actually feeling like you’re here with a purpose. These last few years have seen a huge improvement in how I see my life, what I have been created to do, and how I can fulfill that purpose today.
Today is the day. Whatever that statement may mean for you, I pray that it would speak deeply to your heart and encourage you this weekend. 💖
Hi there! ❤ I hope you’re having a fantastic day. 🙂 Last week, I got caught up on getting all the pictures that I’ve taken this year printed, which I’m really happy about! I’ve always been one to have backups of everything digital, just in the event that any files, systems, etc. ever become corrupted, so I breathe a sigh of relief every time I’m able to get these special moments printed on paper.
Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. 💜 There has been a lot going on in my life recently (most of which have been good things!), so I knew it would be fitting to share an update post today.
(This also may or may not be the post idea I’ve fallen back on because I didn’t have another more thought-out post ready for today. haha whoops)
