Day 2536: Enjoy the ordinary

Yesterday, after publishing Day 2571: What Makes the Ordinary Extraordinary?, I picked this extraordinary mindfulness card at work:


I enjoy the ordinary coincidences and synchronicity of life. Do you?

I hope you enjoy the ordinary in my other photos from yesterday.




















Enjoy the ordinary signs of the season, the Daily Bitch Calendar, and, if possible, the skill of doing nothing.

Here and now, we’re enjoying the ordinary weather in Boston, which was 58 degrees F yesterday and 31 degrees F and snowing as I write this ordinary post. Enjoy the ordinary repetition of this:



Here’s “How to enjoy the mundane or ordinary moments in life!” with Little Woo:


How do you enjoy the ordinary?

Enjoy the ordinary ending of another Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally post, where I share my ordinary thanks with YOU.

  1. Your eye for the ordinary is quite exquisite, Ann.

  2. I fully love finding the joy in the ordinary and in discovering the extraordinary

  3. The skill of doing nothing is not at all ordinary

  4. I find the eye rolling helps with the sarcasm…people definitely notice it then!

  5. Recently I read an article in The New York Times called “Achieving Transcendence on the Millionth ‘Frozen’ Viewing”, by a father who found joy in watching that movie over and over with his daughter. And he refers to another article, ‘The Unexpected Joy of Repeat Experiences’ and, well, the title gives it away, but the important thing here is that repetition is a good way to see how extraordinary the ordinary can be.

  6. I think I may have an ordinary nap this afternoon.

    58 degrees F is 3 degrees warmer than the top floor of my house, where I sleep and work, this month. Very nice!

  9. I’m currently reading a book encouraging “doing nothing” as an option we don’t typically embrace. It’s got me thinking. 🙂
