"All the hammer and scrape has been chipping away at the luster of life." - Frightened Rabbit

Life is hard, but there is also great beauty in it. Somedays it's difficult to see it. We get so bogged down with the daily grind and all the negative events in our life that it's easy to forget the beautiful moments, and I have had some really beautiful ones.

I found myself really worn out yesterday. I worked a 12 hour day and when I got home I felt defeated. It's times like these when I start to question the purpose of life. All I see is just day after day of the same old shit. Then, I think about all the things in my life that I love and all that life has to offer. Yes, the majority of it is monotonous, but it's the beautiful moments that make it all worth it. When I'm having one of those moments, I make sure I embrace it because I know it will be gone in the blink of an eye.

So, here's to finding the beauty in life. When the daily grind starts to chip away at your spirit, remember what it is you love, find the beauty among all the mess, and savor the good times while they last.

  1. It seems like you've been struggling with finding purpose in your life. Hopefully, this doesn't sound weird, but have you ever tried religion? I was struggling with finding my purpose and discovering Christ really helped me...Just a suggestion!

  2. Have the courage of your convictions. You knew your path wasn't an easy one.

  3. Bonnie, looks like those are becoming your favorite boots! I can't blame you, they look good with everything I've seen you in so far. Might have to be a sale pickup for me though. :)

  4. Yes, I do love these boots. Can't wait to wear them with tights, as my legs look blindingly white against the dark brown! LOL!

  5. Thanks for the pep talk! You're so right.
