Day 5 may seem a little early in a 31 day series to be sharing my #1 secret to finding meaning in the mundane, but I’m going to do it anyway. Here it is:
My #1 way to make myself aware of the meaningful moments amidst the mundane is practicing gratitude.
At the beginning of 2011, I read Ann Voskamp’s One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are and I think that title says it all…giving thanks for the many gifts throughout my day helps me to live fully right where I am. Right in the midst of the mundane.
As it turns out, 2011 was the hardest year of my life. And I truly believe that what I learned from reading One Thousand Gifts, is what got me through the year. Learning to count my gifts changed my life.
In the next few days I will share some specific insights I gained from the book, but in the meantime, read my full review here.
