Have you ever noticed how something ho-hum can become special in spectacular surroundings? How about the magic of consuming a humble hot dog while surrounded by stunning scenery?
If you’re like me, you need to shake it up once in a while – do something different! Quite frankly (yes, bad pun!), I had a completely different post almost finished for this time slot. BUT, I got stuck in the ending and just floundered around while tying it all together. It needed more time to gel in my soul.
The solution? Hot Dogs in Paradise, of course! Yep, just had to get out there and enjoy the most basic things. Family, hot dogs, nature. What else do we really need? 🙂
There’s nothing like the feeling of experiencing a day-to-day event in a unique setting. Or a surprising circumstance in a usual setting.
Like a toddler bursting with amazement at the way spilled milk spreads across a dirty floor.
Or a hot cup of coffee over shared memories in a chemotherapy clinic.
The way your favorite fleecy sweater feels on a dreary winter day.
Some people appear to have favored circumstances. But I believe we can ALL have extraordinary lives no matter where we are now. We get there one moment at a time by noticing and acknowledging the extra-ordinary in the ordinary. Try it and see if it doesn’t help you to think more creatively and with an abundant mindset. Let’s encourage each other this month with the hidden treasures we’ve discovered – I’d love to read about them below!
