Finding The Magic In Everyday Moments #weekendcoffeeshare

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how blessed I feel at this point in time. I’d tell you how I’m learning more and more to see beauty around me. I’m learning that despite being more busy than ever, it’s easy to be mindful if you tune your mind to look for beauty. I’m grateful that I’m finding the magic in everyday moments and loving it. I am gratefully present in the present.

Finding The Magic In Everyday Moments

It is when we are confronted with…poignant reminders of mortality that we become most aware of the strangeness and wonder of our brief life on Earth. – Kathleen Basford

The wind traverses the vast sky,
clouds emerge from the mountains;
Feelings of enlightenment and things of the world
are of no concern at all.
Suchness — Zen Master Keizan Jõkin

  1. […] If were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’ve been posting a lot here although I’ve been ill. First, a low grade fever and then a very bad body ache. I that it’s all symptomatic of emotional turmoil that I’m going through. But I’m not going to dwell on that today. Rather, I’d love to tell you that I enjoyed looking at little plants starting to grow in the wet weather we’re having, doves walking about (Lucky attempts to catch them!), lots of yellow butterflies, rain lilies and these toad stools that have sprung up in our backyard. Yes, I’m finding peace in wild things. […]

    Loved the pictures, Corinne. If we were having coffee, I would say that I have had a wonderful time this weekend and I am looking forward to a great week ahead 🙂 I wish you a good week ahead too!

    Such lovely pictures, especially the view from your bedroom! If we were having coffee right now, I’d tell you that I’m glad and grateful for everything I do, and hope I can enjoy my blessings to the fullest!

    I would tell you how Spring’s arrival is very late this year due to our unseasonably snowy Winter here in western Canada. However, there is hope. The daffodils are up and the magnolia tree outside my bedroom window is finally ready to pop.

    Lovely clicks and excellent words. When I share a cup of Coffee with you, I will also share about the little things that me happy every day.

    Oh, wow, another coffee-lover!
    If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I so agree with what you said in your post, and that how I have begun doing the same thing, myself! I take one day at a time, think about everything that I want to do and also look at the little things that I used to miss out on earlier and take those things like doses of happiness to keep me going.
    Things like my veggie garden doing quite well despite the summer- it tells me that I am taking good care of my plants.
    My baking seems to be improving slowly and steadily – that gives me immense joy! And, as is my writing! My Chikoo, when he relaxes with his head on my lap gives me joy, considering I don’t know how much time I have with him. Little things that I ought to be grateful for…
    Erm, was that a bit too much? 🙂 <3

    Beautiful captures, Corinne. I especially like the tree by the stream, sort of feels familiar. Well, if we were having coffee, I would tell you it’s been really a busy couple of weeks and I’m glad I’m getting some time off for coffee 🙂


    I would sip my gigantic mug of tea and tell you about the Jacaranda tree that is full of purplicious blooms and inciting other trees next to it to burst into flowers too!!
    I would tell you all about the sparrows I have started seeing and hearing once again on my balcony and the gardens below.
    And I would also share with you my angst over house moving 😉

    I prefer tea but I would tell you about the crocuses that are blooming in my little garden. The little lavender beauties are the first signs of life in my garden. They are banishing winter and bringing hope and color back to a gray landscape.
