Jonathan Fields shared a reminder from Brene Brown about what it means to live a good life.
She said this:
A good life happens when you stop and are grateful for the ordinary moments that so many of us just steamroll over to try to find those extraordinary moments. To me, my good life is soccer practice, and carpool line. And tuck-ins. And date night. That’s the good life for me. And knowing that it’s good. Acknowledging and stopping and saying that it’s good.
Gratitude in the Ordinary Moments
I think that’s such a perfect way to say what led me to start making LeafOut.
The big moments in life are there, and they aren’t easy to forget.
But the ordinary moments that we so easily “steamroll over” are so easy to forget — but we can’t — because it’s those kinds of moments where the good life lives.
It’s so easy for us to want more. But the easiest way to have more is by focusing on more of what you already have.
That’s where stopping to feel grateful is so important. That’s how we acknowledge those little parts of our days that make up most of our lives.
I wanted a way to look back on these ordinary moments and to be grateful for them every day.
If you’re like me and want an easy way to do that, please join me in making LeafOut an amazing tool to help us focus on remembering the good life.
