I've been trying to be more intentional and more mindful in my day to day living, but it is not an easy thing to do. It's so much easier to just do the same things I always do without thinking about them. Trying to live intentionally feels a little bit to me like trying to make a ball roll uphill. It takes constant thinking and doing, and I get tired of it and go back to letting the ball just roll downhill, even if it means letting the ball roll into a puddle of slop.
As a way to add more intentionality to my day, I've decided to challenge myself to write here every day for a month. I also plan to add a picture of something I find beautiful, whether it is extraordinarily beautiful or just an ordinary thing that I have stopped noticing.
The sunshine is beautiful today and I love the way it feels on my face and shoulders. Pepper, our little Boston Terrier loves the warmth and the sunshine too. The lawn is growing again, (and needs to be mowed!) and Pepper just looked up after chewing on a blade of grass.
