Lift a Day Out of the Ordinary

What begins?

We can take days like this and make them into something that goes beyond the ordinary. We can make them into times that matter, days that will live on in memory.

It doesn’t take all that much to lift a day out of the ordinary, even a smile or a gentle touch can be enough to begin the day with.

Even the way the sun shines down through the red and gold and brown leaves of an autumn tree can be enough, or the sight of a fox or badger making their way back home as the dawn packs away the reluctant night in the mists of an autumnal morning.

Once a day like that gets underway there is little than go wrong with it, even though capricious chance can always take the perfect moment and rip it to pieces. Accident and happenstance can befall us all, taking the perfect day and trample it into the muddy ground.

The world is never going to be perfect, and to expect a perfect life is to spend a lifetime in disappointment and regret. The small moments in an otherwise humdrum day can lift the spirits; make the world seem not quite so bad after all. The smile from a stranger on a cold winter morning street can do far more for us than all the gadgets we own and give us everything the adverts promise us, all for a fraction of the cost.
