I was intrigued. What the heck is "muchness" anyway?
According to Tova, the author of the finding your muchness site:
Muchness is the energy, the life, the spark of positivity that fuels our days, our imaginations, our confidence. Kids are filled with Muchness. Their desire to see and learn and know and experience is something to be envied. As adults we often lose our Muchness. The day to day routines that can drag us down, the disappointments that sometimes seem like they’ll never end… we don’t take the time to see the positivity. We forget to be inspired.
The more I read about Tova's story, the more I felt inspired. What an incredibly strong woman. She lost her twin girls 6 months into pregnancy and has focused on healing and helping others find healing too. Her 30 days of muchness challenge seems like exactly what I need right now. The sparkle and glitter is all around us, we just have to take a moment to recognize it and call it out.
I will identify one thing a day that brings me joy and post it to my blog with pics. I'll still write about what is on my mind and what is going on, but I think it will be an uplifting aspect to my day. I'm looking forward to it and already feel my spirit lift just thinking about it!
Finding my Muchness - Day 1
Today's muchness is the rain we got last night. Something about getting rain makes my heart tingle. It may be because we live in such a hot place with sweltering summers. Or it might be because Kevin is a major weather enthusiast (it's really cute.) But there is always this big anticipation in our household when a storm is on it's way to central Texas. Is it here yet? IS IT HERE YET? And when the rain and thunder finally rolls in, it's so cozy and wonderful. There are some nights when I'll wake up and realize Kevin isn't next to me. I'll find him in our formal dining room sitting on a chair and staring out the window at the storms at 3am! We have been blessed to have had two major storms in the past week and I just love it! You can see from the photo below that we planted herbs in the pots on our patio and it makes me happy to know they are getting some much needed moisture. Not to mention Maggie's tree needs it too which you can see on the far right side of the back of the yard.
I have found my muchness in the rain today.
