I was hesitant about writing this post because I am human and I don’t always see the good in everyday life. I have my days where I am annoyed and hate everything but I have days where I see life for what it really is: a true blessing.
This post was inspired from a book
I won’t dive deep into the book because my words won’t do it justice but just know that this is the most humbling and heartwarming book I’ve ever read. I am shocked that a girl like Katie Davis Majors exist in this world. God has blessed her with an unbelievable drive to make the world a better place.
But anyway, this post is about how this book has taught me to see the good in everyday life. Last year, I found myself very discontent with life. I wasn’t moving forward with my side business, I didn’t make smart financial decisions, my hobbies were nonexistent and I felt so stuck with life (which is normal when you’re in your 20’s I assume).
Now over the years, my faith and my love for God have grown immensely, and even though I read my Bible every single morning and I’m supposed to “tackle today’s work in the strength He provides and trust Him to work powerfully within you (me), “I still had bad days.
However, after reading “Kisses from Katie” I’ve had a different perspective on life. So, to conclude this post, here are a few ways I’m slowly learning to see the good in everyday life.
- As soon as my alarm rings, I remind myself that I am alive and I get to see another day.
- I get to read my bible every morning. Many people around the world don’t have the luxury of reading the Bible, nonetheless owning one. Many people around the world still don’t know about Jesus and the Holy Father, but I do and I get to learn about him every day.
- I get to choose whether I want to drive, walk or take the metro to walk. I have so many options to choose from, it’s awesome.
- I have the time, money and access to buy food for lunch every day.
- I am surrounded by awesome people, people who are driven and motivated, people who are excited to work every day, people who want to learn and help others. People who constantly make me laugh even when I’m having a bad day.
- I work on the 43rd floor of the most beautiful office building in all of Miami overlooking the water. It’s such a blessing to have this view every single day while I work.
- When I get home, I have an abundance of food to choose from for dinner. God has supplied me with all my basic needs and more and for that, I am beyond thankful.
- It’s the little things in life that make life so amazing, like the first sip of matcha, the first bite of a meal, sitting on your couch after a long day, a hug from your partner, drinking water after a long run, your comfortable bed in the mornings, starting a new book, learning a new skill, making a new recipe, trying a new restaurant, going for a walk outside, laughing until your stomach hurts, going to church.
This post was very God-focused but that’s because without him in my life, I would never be able to achieve anything. I owe all my wealth, my small successes, my experiences and my life to him. He died on the cross so i could have a life. The only way to thank him is simply by living a life that glorifies him, which is why I’ve made it a priority to see the good in everything. I hope my book recommendation and this post shines a light on your dull days because we all have them, but we all have the ability to change our perspective at any given time.
