Today we find 13 extra-ordinary things in the ordinary. It was inspired by an article by author Geneen Roth which is linked below. Do read it 🙂
“Walking. Being barefoot. The fact of night. Stars. Salamanders. A sip of tea. A bite of chocolate. My husband’s face. The ordinary things we pass by on the way to wherever it is we think we will finally be able to relax—and enjoy the ordinary things,” writes Geneen Roth in her article.
Today’s exercises is really enjoying the moment, embracing, loving and squeezing in the juices of what is right around you, even if you are seeking something better or bigger.
She goes on to write, “It turns out that the true extraordinary isn’t reserved for special people or big achievements or red-carpet-moments. It’s extraordinary to write a book, and it’s extraordinary to eat a grilled cheese sandwich with tomatoes and mustard. It’s extraordinary to meet a famous person, and it’s extraordinary to meet the eyes of a grocery store cashier.”
I’m pushing us to do 13 moments because I want you to do it throughout the day, not just do it and get it done. There are extra-ordinary moments every day, all day long. We just need to invite ourselves to the party to see them! You need to believe in magic, for magic to show up. You need to open your loving, grateful heart and absorb all the wonder around you if you want to feel wonderful.
So take some pics and post them on the Women’s Tribe Facebook Page or Feed Your Feminine Soul Group Page. Tell me about your extra-ordinary moments experience in the ordinary facets of our lives. I want to hear them. I will share mine with you. Sign-up to receive the emails for daily doses of connecting of wildly, luscious soul.
At the end of the day reflect and write on any new awareness this exercise brought you? What did you learn?
