Glitter in the Day: Part Two


Recently, I read an article discussing the stagnant nature of a mundane routine. When we find ourselves in never-ending cycles, we can become restless while going through the motions. We risk losing sight of what exactly makes life worth the effort. Upon finishing the piece, I realized that in order to find pleasure in life, we must actively seek it out.

It is too easy to overlook the seemingly insignificant treasures, especially amidst a drawn-out pandemic. Every once in a while, I enjoy taking a moment to seek out these hidden gems. Even the simple glitter makes all of the difference.

Try it; make note of a few. You might happen upon some magic in any ordinary moment.
