Finding Wonder and Joy in Every Day

When I pull up the shades and this is what I see, it makes my soul sing with joy.

A few days ago I fell and by some divine miracle I didn’t hurt my surgery knee, (from which I’m still not fully recovered,) nor did I  completely kill myself.  I am bruised and still feel the fall, but I’m OK.  It’s been four months since the surgery, and I haven’t been able to really go outside and walk around looking for wonder to photograph.

I started off this year with the word “mindfulness” and as the year progressed two other words attached themselves to me, “joy” and “wonder”.  And so far it’s been a real gift to find joy and wonder in the everyday things.  This morning I pulled up the shade and I was immediately struck by this gorgeous view.   I usually don’t photograph airplanes, nor are there many flying over my house, but there it was, the sky the airplane the trees the colors, I could feel the beauty and the view just hit me, a gift to my senses.

Wonder and joy are all around us, they are in our every day no matter where we are, we can find it if we’re open to it.  I feel joy washing the pots I used to cook my dinner in, I love feeling the warm water run through my fingers.  I feel great joy cleaning my kitchen after dinner, feeling grateful for another end of a day and leaving it clean and ready for the morning.

The most important part to bringing a moment of joy and wonder into our day is to want to.  It’s our choice, we get to decide, we can set our intention to be mindful, and open to see wonder in the things that we do or look at every day.

Do you look for a moment of wonder and joy in your days? Come and join in the fun and share your moment, I’d love to know.

Wonder Joy Blessings

  1. I’m glad you’re ok and didn’t hurt yourself. That is such a beautiful sight to see when you look outside. ❤️ I’m trying to find the joy in the little things, especially when I’m having a really bad day. It always makes me feel better. 🙂

    1. Thank you Michelle, it really was a divine miracle that I didn’t really hurt myself. I have a suggestion, when you can’t find joy, especially when you’re having a bad day, go and read some of the comments people have written about your blog posts, you inspire others to get creative, and that alone will fill you with joy. Thank you, blessings.

  2. Oh ouch, I’m sorry you had a nasty fall, but I’m glad it wasn’t worse than it was. Hopefully with plenty of rest you’ll heal enough to be able to go outside soon, for a gentle walk.

    Lovely sky view – it’s a great reminder that even from the confines of our homes we can connect with the outside, we can find joy and beauty in the small things. When I did some dusting the other day I took a new appreciation for some ornaments I have, ones I’ve had for years since I was little; just thinking of those memories bought a smile to my face.

    Rest up and I hope you’re feeling a little better, and a little less bruised, soon lovely  ♥

    1. Thank you for your kind words, I’m much better now from the fall, and getting better every day from the surgery. 🙂

      The things that we look at every day we tend not to notice, they are there but we don’t see them, it’s so great when we suddenly notice something, like your ornament and feel joy from the memories that arise. Thank you for sharing that moment. Blessings
