Not every day is special

When you look back at your life, what are the days that stand out to you? What days will live with you forever? What moments will always be remembered as something extraordinary, very special? 

When I think back like this it's not all good memories that come back to me. Some of those days that I really remember are not very pleasant memories. And some, are just so sweet. But this is how it is, both and more. It's more often the extraordinary days that stays on our mind, whilst all the ordinary days just pass us by. 

But what if the ordinary is the really juicy part of life? What if the not so special days are the ones that are really special in the end? I hear many people at the end of their life reflecting back on their lives and longing back to the ordinary days. Same when something really tough happen and everything is turned upside down, what do you long for then? The ordinary. 

Don't go looking for the special days. Enjoy the ordinary ones and try your best to notice the small and very ordinary miracles in all of them. 

With all my love,
