Day 17 {Day 17} 31 Extraordinary Days | "In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary." Aaron Rose


I love this quote by Aaron Rose…

“In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.”



Living an extraordinary life means training our eyes to see beauty in the ordinary.

Have you ever spent time with someone who sees things you don’t?  My husband is intrigued by birds of prey. He’ll notice Red-tailed Hawks as we drive down the road.  I asked him, “How do you see them?”  He reminded me that he had trained his eyes to see them.  Isn’t that the way it is?  Whether seeing beauty in nature or bubbles in the sink or….



What is it that you need to train your eyes to see?



Why be Ordinary when You can be Extraordinary!


Be Extraordinary!
