“Bloom where you’re planted.” 🌿
.
In other less fancy words, be present where you’re placed. Thrive, don’t just survive. As a couple who had some huge milestones in our first two and a half years of marriage (moving abroad, paying off our debt, traveling), the past several months have felt... well, a bit plain. ✨
.
Learning to find joy, adventure, & purpose in the daily routine isn’t always easy, but let us tell you: It’s so important to learn now. 🙌🏼
.
Leave it to good ‘ol Instagram to make you think life should always be sunshine and sparkles 🙄😭 But the truth? There are a lot of “plain” or “routine” moments (days, weeks, months!) out there. And you know what? They are beautiful, too.✌🏼✨
.
Here’s some random “inspirational” thoughts from two people who are learning to fall in love with the present & stop dwelling on the “if only.” 👊🏼 Day to day, normal life is cool 😉

    It’s true you can find contentment anywhere and you can also create challenges for yourself right in your backyard!! There’s a cool book called The Happiness of Pursuit that’s all about making your life exciting without needing to do things that are exciting.

    @where.is.naomi thanks friend! ☺️💛

    @jazzyhwang I feel like this totally relates to that self care article we were talking about in some weird way haha. Being present and not dwelling on the what if or want want want is so healthy!

  9. worldinw

    Sweet 👊

  10. where.is.naomi

    So beautiful ! Love love love 💕

  11. jazzyhwang

    THISSS! Being more present is something that I’m trying to do! 🙌🏻

  12. adaypack

    @allyctran so well said! Absolutely 💛

  13. adaypack

    @katiebeard mmm glad this resonated with you!

  14. allyctran

    I totally agree. Sometimes it’s the little, prosaic moments that are actually the most precious... and the ones we’ll miss the most one day.

  15. katiebeard

    So gorgeous. So true.

  16. adaypack

    @katnthewild beautifully said, Kat! Completely agree 😍

  17. adaypack

    @thepurposefulcloset absolutely! 😍

  18. adaypack

    @ecocult mmm love how you worded that! Yes!

  19. adaypack

    @mochiesnyder seriously agree! Everyday life can be so deeply beautiful + fulfilling! All those little moments add up!

  20. adaypack

    @worldthreads we completely agree. And adventures and travel ARE good! So good and fun, actually! But when you think that’s all there is to life or all to look forward to, that can make you think there’s something wrong with your everyday life. That’s just not true!

    I've really been trying to spend less time on social media... it's incredible the way life suddenly comes to life when you reconnect with the real world.

  22. thepurposefulcloset

    Girl I love this so much! Normal life is absolutely cool ✌🏼

  23. ecocult

    Yes, so true! The planning and day-today stuff can feel like a cop out sometimes. But it’s so necessary and can feel quite nourishing.

  24. mochiesnyder

    Yes there is! Social media makes you feel like you’re missing out or that you are plain but so not true ❤️❤️❤️ #wonderfulandfearfullymade 

  25. worldthreads

    Yes! 🙌🏼 so much social media pressure for things to be perfect and full of adventures. But there is something so uniquely yours about those quiet routine moments.
