And just like that, not only is it Monday again but it’s a whole new month. Woo! Did you all have a fun weekend?! We had the best Halloween, the entire evening spent celebrating our sweet friends’ wedding! As I looked back at the pictures we took of the night, I realized that most – if not all of them – were either blurry, grainy, weird angles, someone’s eyes were closed, or they just weren’t quite in focus. And I couldn’t help but smile because I thought – Yeah. That’s exactly what it’s like. That’s exactly what living life looks and feels like most of the time. Sometimes the best times in life, the best times together, just turn out that way.
Living life shouldn’t look like perfection and if it does, you’re not living it enough.
Today I’m remembering to embrace the blurry and grainy and out-of-focus moments in life. I’m remembering to embrace the weird angles – the wrinkles on my face that have surfaced in the last few years, the curves that come and go due to the times I’ve chosen to eat that second donut, and the days that don’t always go as planned… the days that sometimes just feel weird and blah. I’m going to attempt to embrace it all in the moment in which they happen and let it all go when it becomes an unneeded distraction.
Today I choose to be grateful for the blurry, grainy, out-of-focus, weird angle and imperfect days… it reminds me that I’m choosing to really live life. And that’s not a bad reminder for a Monday.
