It Is a New Day!

My kids enjoy watching the Carl and Jinger Family channel on YouTube. They start their vlog with, “Today is a new day. Let’s make it an awesome one.” I really love this motto!

I honestly enjoy mornings . The start of a day has so much potential to be miraculous. Like a reset button on the day before. I also find that starting the day looking forward to the day and all that will unfold gives me the momentum to move through the day with a joyous heart.

It really is the little things that bring the most joy. Little thoughts of love, of miracles, of joy. All wraps together in a beautiful package of happiness. Contentment. It is wonderful to have.

May you all start your day, or end your day, depending on when you are reading this, with peace and joy. Looking forward to the freshness of life. The beauty of the world. Because beauty does exist, even in the harshness of life.

Love and blessings to you. đź’• Carrie

I Am in Love

I am in love
With the sunlight as it dances
Across a field of tall grasses.

I am in love
With the raindrops as they
Bedazzle the flowers with diamonds
That shimmer in the sun.

I am in love
With the wind as it weaves its way
Through the trees creating beautiful music.

I am in love
With the clouds
Gently rolling across the blue sky.
Changing to shapes that delight the imagination.

I am in love
With the way life unfolds
Creating magical moments of delight
At every turn.

I am in love.

Chasing Happiness

The almost elusive happiness is up around the bend.
I made it there, but wait!
It rounded the corner again.

I know, I will speed up!
Yes, I got it.
I am sprinting fast.
"Happiness, here I come!"
Happiness speeds past.

Maybe that shiny jet will catch it.
No.
Still out of reach.
Exhausted.
I give up.
I go to rest on the beach.

Lying on the sand, wishing the chase was not futile.
I resigned and gave in.
In that moment, I turn to find,

Happiness resting beside me.
"Sometimes you need to surrender and let go.
Happiness will find you."
