For a long time I have had a little motto called, “Discover the Jewel.” I believe there is a jewel in every day (and sometimes many!) All we have to do is find it. Know at the beginning of each day, that somewhere, somehow, a beautiful thing will happen, something you can rightly name a jewel. And then watch for the serendipity to come to pass. It’s like going on a treasure hunt daily. And it certainly puts a happy spin on our otherwise mundane routines.
At the end of the day, look back and count the jewels as you fall asleep, the good things, the miraculous little blessings provided by a loving Father in heaven. And even on the bad days, there will always be at least one tiny jewel–if we seek hard enough to find it.
Commit to discovering the jewel(s) daily. Give yourself the childlike joy and elation of a daily treasure hunt.
