We feel as though things are boring and uninteresting and repetitive. I challenge that.
This life we are a part of…this ride we’re on…it’s really quite a trip. The trick is to keep your eyes wide open and notice all the wonderful things that are going on around you and that are unique to you.
Every ride has a view.
What is the view you have today? Is it an office cubicle? Is it a kitchen? Is it a playroom filled with young children? Stop. Breathe. Observe.
The photo I chose for today is from the top of the London Eye ferris wheel. It was a very memorable day for me and had quite the view. However, you don’t have be at the top of a ferris wheel to see amazing things. Look around as though you were looking through a camera lens – where would your eye stop and snap a photo? Treasure that up. File it away. Look for a life lesson in the ordinary.
Several years ago I was challenged by a friend to spend 40 days observing the ordinary and to write about it each night. Out of this challenge came a devotional book. I haven’t published it yet – however it has been used to help others and inspire them time and time again. Hopefully, one day I will actually get the thing published. I would love that, although it’s not necessary to the lessons I learned. I was enjoying the view set before me and it was awesome.
So – take this challenge and try to find something unique in your view each and every day. Write it down – make a list. You’ll be surprised at how extraordinary the ordinary can truly be.
