It’s Monday again. But today I refuse to upset about it. Yesterday, my husband said to me, as I was experiencing my usual Sunday night blues, “Every day is a new opportunity.” And today I am going to choose to believe that.
Since I’ve gotten serious about this blogging thing, I am finding that every day is indeed a new opportunity. A new chance to experience life at it’s fullest. A new beginning to find inspiration to write about.
It’s opening my eyes to the beauty and the humor in every single moment of my day. Each sadness, each frustration, each joy can be turned in to something that brings comfort, humor, or excitement to others. I’m trying to see each challenge that comes my way, not as a road block, but an opportunity to further connect with my friends and readers, and in turn learn more about myself.
That’s been a lot of what I’ve experienced blogging. Growing closer to new friends and old friends. Closer to my husband and family, and ultimately closer to myself. I’m learning my strengths and finding confidence in discovering my own voice and style. Finding that I have something to offer. Finding that if I put my mind to it, I can accomplish what I set out to do.
So today, try to find the beauty in each moment. Use each experience as an opportunity to share a story down the road with those around you. It could lift them up in laughter or encouragement, and there is no greater feeling than helping someone that way.
If you find yourself thinking on a regular basis, “I’m gonna blog about this,” you should check out my favorite shirt from my Rebecca Chapman Creations shop. I broke down and ordered one for myself and I am LOVING it. I hope you will too!
P.S. Did you notice my new blog design?! Rissa from Riss Blog Design created a really beautiful custom design for me and I am so excited to have a blog that just looks and feels like “me.” Thanks Rissa!
