Yesterday I posted on my Instagram feed on how I have been feeling a little uninspired lately. I guess it's all part of the process. Finding the beautiful in the mundane isn't a terribly easy thing to do, especially when the mundane has been the same scene for quite some time now. Where are we? Like week 9? 10? Is anyone keeping track anymore?
I've been trying to spend more time outside to get some fresh air. Plus, I feel like I thrive outdoors. Anyways, I've recently become awe struck at the beauty and peace that have come from simply sitting outside in our backyard (albeit the gusts of wind coming through have been the least pleasant thing out of everything). One really amazing thing that I've been noticing are the hummingbirds that have been coming to our home for the past few days. I mean, obviously as soon as you notice them, it seems as though they are gone, but nonetheless, it's been pretty awesome.
I looked into the symbolism of hummingbirds, and it's said that hummingbirds are here to teach us about the many blessings in our life. How perfectly timely is that? In a time of un-inspiredness, I'm being told to look for my blessings and to truly find the beauty and inspiration around me. Things are only mundane if we allow them to be. After all, life is only a summation of our perspective. And that perspective is one that we choose, moment to moment.
I hope that you can find something inspiring in your day today. Whatever it may be, may it put a huge smile on your face!
