The specialness of the every day

The specialness of the every day.

The every day of life. Pause. Look. See.

I just finished a novel about two friends. It’s called Leonard and Hungry Paul by Ronan Hession. Nothing much happens and yet it was immersive. Why? Because the author does a great job of describing the every day of their lives. And in those every day moments – making breakfast, topping up the bird feeders, getting the shopping in, doing work, interacting with friends and family with moments of togetherness and moments of misunderstanding – there is joy.

What’s in your every day today? Pause, Look. See. Don’t miss the joy alongside the tough stuff.
