Life in Ordinary Moments

Every now and again, I come across a line when I’m reading that just speaks to me.

In Still Writing (2013), by Dani Shaprio, there is an essay called, “Ordinary Life.”  She writes about how as writers, we need to throw light on the ordinary moments to bring life to our stories.

Since the premise of this blog is about sharing the beauty of ordinary moments, I wanted to share one of her lines here:

” If I dismiss the ordinary – waiting for the special, the extreme, the extraordinary to happen – I may just miss my life.”  (p. 123)

I truly believe that we need to appreciate the small, the mundane, the tiny details of our lives.

Life happens in these moments.

  1. The older I get the more I live minute to minute and have stopped living in expectation. It’s easy to miss real life. Great quote.
