I stumbled upon a motivational blog the other day and saw a post that recommended people take a 30-day challenge to do something different, take steps to break a bad habit, or simply document your days with a photo. Well yesterday, I decided to take this journey. During the next 30 days, I’ll be be waking up a little earlier, stretching a little more, telling my loved ones how much they mean to me, and much more. I also started documenting my days because the thing is, sometimes our days can feel lost and meaningless. A month goes by and you don’t even realize it. I’ve been experiencing something along these lines lately, and it’s downright scary. So as uneventful or mundane as my days might appear, I am determined to regain a sense of appreciation for my days and to find some beauty in fleeting moments.
Second day of Spring, March 21, 2012:
The air was chilly but periodic sun bursts compelled us to walk to the park where we sat on the bench with the fickle sun on our faces as we discussed our future and life. We stopped by the conservatory in the park and admired the new flowers in bloom. The smell of the white lilies reminded me of my mom. We bought a Macrina Bakery baguette from our adorable neighborhood Greek store, which we had for dinner with brie and some cheap red wine.
