I watched my granddaughter rediscover a toy she had played with only a short time before. She was excited with her discovery, and she reminded me of the importance of noticing and rediscovering the familiar.
We can become accustomed to what’s around us, what’s readily available. We overlook it and take it for granted. We want more when what we have is enough.
But when we look more closely, when we notice the details, we appreciate newness within the familiar. We find a combination of contentment with discovery.
And whether I see someone else’s joy of discovery, like my granddaughter’s, or find it myself, I smile.
There is always more joy to discover.
