Today Will be a Good Day

roomupdate (1 of 1)-2

I woke up this morning with great anticipation for a brand new day, feeling hopeful and refreshed. I look out the window and the day does not disappoint as the sun shines brightly upon the ground making its white gown shimmer. Made with exquisite fabrics covered in diamonds. Blue skies reminiscent of the vast oceans and the assurance of The Almighty watching over me. I proclaim to myself that today will be a good day.

I’m thankful as I haven’t felt very motivated these past few days, instead feeling a little scattered and unfocused. I realized that I’ve been too preoccupied with what others are doing and listening to advice that while potentially beneficial to others, does not align well with my own purpose or even beliefs. But as I picked up my camera this morning, I had a moment of clarity. As I looked through that lens, I was reminded that my purpose is to hopefully inspire others to see beauty  in the mundane and that’s what I intend to continue doing.

It’s so easy to lose sight of your own gifts and blessings when your eyes are focused on someone else’s. And so as I sit here with the rays of the sun kissing my head, I want to encourage you to stay on your own path; focus on what you love and what you know you do well because at the end of the day, that’s what will bring you joy and contentment. Listen to advice, but be wise that it does not comprise your own beliefs and standards.

I had the honour of attending a beautiful dinner with Wayfair Canada last night, and as the icing on the cake, I got to bring home this pretty little arrangement.

I’ve never had an arrangement with seeded eucalyptus before and it inspired me to take a couple of photos. It’s always refreshing to see a beautiful arrangement in your space, isn’t it?

Wishing you a beautiful day.

    Hi Lucy – I’m usually a “lurker” and rarely comment on blogs, but I would just like to take a minute and leave a few thoughts. I was so delighted when I came across your blog a few months ago, and I can’t even recall how I initially “stumbled” upon your beautiful craftberry bush. I was super-excited when I realized that you live in Canada too! I am a sister in Christ from Peterborough, Ontario, and I absolutely love reading your almost daily posts. I have shared your blog with both of my married daughters as well, and speak to them about “Lucy” like you’re our old family friend! At Christmastime one daughter gave me a gift and the tag read only “Imitation is the Highest Form of Flattery”. She purchased me one of your stag prints that was unceremoniously and poorly imitated by herein unnamed retailer, after hearing me recount the story. She said that she thought I’d be happy that we supported Lucy, and she was SO right!! May I just say thank you for sharing your time and God-given talent to inspire your readers? Thank you for the beautiful free printables that you regularly produce and allow us to download to display in our homes. Your work is HANDS-DOWN in a class of its own. To plagiarize your words, “I want to encourage you to stay on your own path; focus on what you love and what you know you do well because at the end of the day, that’s what will bring you joy and contentment.” God bless Lucy!!
