Image result for bananas

Yesterday’s banana was normal.

Not the best….just normal.

It wasn’t “thick-skinned”….it was just normal….whatever “normal” is.

That’s kind of funny…..that “normal” would be “just OK”.

Nothing exceptional…..just OK.

I was thinking about how jaded I get sometimes….how, because I’ve seen some beautiful things in my life, I don’t always give the beautiful in my life the attention it deserves.

I get too used to great.

That’s a “thing”……huh?

It’s a blessing to get used to beautiful.

It’s wonderful to have had the opportunity to experience enough good things in my life that I’d get used to any of it..

I’ve been to some amazing places and seen wonderful things.

It’s a foolish thing to take beautiful for granted.

How does a person seek out and find beauty….and still remain able to appreciate everything they’re given?

I am swimming upstream…pushing uphill….rolling a stone that comes crashing back down again….but….I know “beautiful”.

How do I learn to appreciate it all….all the time?

I’m glad I didn’t get another skinny banana.

I don’t need that distraction.

I don’t need a strange tangent when I’m remembering all the beauty I’ve been given.

I need to appreciate this all…..right now.

I need to appreciate.
