I’m up today within the yummy morning window. I’ve had time to write. Laundry is on and I’m about to do the ten minutes of yoga for which I currently have stamina.
Balance is what I seek today. In the lull of normal life, I just want a normal, moderately productive day.
I sit in front of the computer screen too much, looking at other women’s blogs which make life as mommy look unrealistically glamourous. I look at the words and pictures which pour forth from these blogs and compare my own meager attempts at a web presence, comparing for no good reason because my own blog bursts full of my own creativity which is completely unique to me.
Today, I will be more present as a mother and less present on social media.
When the sun comes up I will sit on my front porch and drink whatever caffeinated beverage I can find in the kitchen. I will read a devotional today. I will actually clean house a little bit. Today will be filled with peace and gratitude for my wonderfully mundane life.
I’ve had days that weren’t quite so normal, on both sides of the spectrum. I’m slowly but surely learning that there is beauty in the routine. There is life in the calm and today I’m determined to coax out a little of the serenity that’s always waiting right around the corner.
