Take A Look Around...

It's a marvellous day isn't it?!

Well...

It's sure starting out to be! (I've extended my weekend so this Monday welcomes me with a relaxing day ahead!)

Hi!

As I sit here writing this post...

I'm simply marvelling in all the love I came to feel in all that I came to do this past weekend! (Talk about a tongue twister lol)


The Color Run was FUll of family FUn!
(Recap coming soon)

As I take a look around and into what makes my life whole...

I can tell you, without hesitation that...

I am grateFUl for everything that fill me from the inside out!

Filling myself up with love from my family and...
All the good things that make me healthy and whole.
We be juicing together :) 

Honestly...

When you take moments out of your day to appreciate and value what it is you have...

You come to really see and feel all the things that actually complete you as a person! (And, you develop a stronger appreciation for all of these things each time you do so!)



In other words...

When we look beyond what we think would make us happier (the tangible, materialistic things) and yet...

Focus on what it is we do have (the intangibles)...

Our appreciation for all things deepens!

No matter the shape or form...
There is plenty to be grateFUl for.

In a world where we are always searching for the next best thing in what would make us more complete...

I truly believe that it's important for us to step back, look around (both inside and outside of yourselves) to realize how much we really do have! (And should be grateFUl for!)

GrateFUl for the smiles we share.

I mean...

If we are always looking for those things that are supposed to make us happier (which is different for every individual) then...

We will never be truly happy as our present state will never be good enough! (Perhaps because we are more focused on what the FUture will bring rather than appreciating the present for what it is bringing?)

I guess what I'm trying to say is...

We all need to look around (more often) and...

Be grateFUl in what is making our lives fruitFUl and FUll of love!

Looking around and seeing...
Family, love, happiness and (not limited to) a whole lot of  FUn :)

Have a marvellous day everyone!

Thanks Katie for this great link up!

  3. Life really is good isn't it? I need to look around more often! I get caught up in the things that don't matter when I am surrounded by the most incredible people and am truly fortunate to have the life I have.

    Color Run looked fantastic! Also I'm not kidding that I want to come play with your pup!! Too cute :)

  21. Such a true and wonderful message! It reminds me a book I read ages ago called 'The Power of Now' which basically says that instead of looking for the next 'thing' or change in your life that is going to be the puzzle piece that makes you happy, live in the now and appreciate all you already have and learn to be happy with that.

    So glad you had such a marvelous weekend :)
