Danae Smith is East Coast born and raised, but a West Coast girl at heart, She is the founder of This Wondrous Life, a lifestyle blog, rooted in pursuing a life lived simply, slowly, and with community.

Over the years, Danae has found her heart pulled so strongly towards living a slower, more simple life. In a time where we are inundated with the message of instant gratification; where success is defined by numbers and accolades, and social media has begun to define how we live our lives, She desires to build a space and create a culture that shows another way---a more simple and slow approach to life.

There are days that feel hard, not necessarily because stuff is out of whack or not working out. Everything is as it should be, but still it feels hard, It feels as if pieces are missing or just aren't fitting. It feels as if there isn't enough and never will be enough, yesterday was one of those days for me. Yesterday was a day of a lot of feelings, mostly familiar tears, burned at the corner of my eyes. As I kept thinking about how things were now, I wish they could be in all the ways they weren't. What I felt they should be discontent
and then discouragement stood ready to receive me. It was easy to follow them. I a comfortable and run the gamut of wood, a sugar quota. To be honest, I kind of went there. A little bet, it's quite easy to do. It is easy to make myself at. I'm in a space full of questioning, doubting and worry, even though it not where I want to be when I the home from work. I made myself a cup of hot cocoa, grabbed my journal and gave myself room room to process and write it out room to feel and technology. Was happening. I think sometimes we get overwhelmed with life with the in between never give ourselves room to feel and acknowledge it we'll give ourselves. Mission to feel the disappointments t, frustration or the fear we are often in this too,
their space of living. What is in front of us yet anticipating was to come and that tender space we will feel all the fields. I think that's what makes a tender is a space we are meant to feel men walk out. I realise this space can either make you or break you, making either he'll you or destroy you. I say this because how we manage ourselves in this space determines so much it shapes you moulds, you chiseled you, while you become, is entirely up to you. But the space isn't only tender because we are meant to feel it in marriage ourselves. Well in it, I think, is also tender because it is an invitation to live well. I realize more more that we live in a fast pace. World things are happening quickly. Technology is advancing rapidly. We have everything literally at our fingertips. We grumpy,
She was long lines when our internet connection is slow. We fast forward through commercials and do everything we can to drive in the express lines. There's nothing wrong with that to some extent I realise our impatience with the simple things like traffic or long lines, trickled down too impatient with ourselves and our process. It shows me how quickly we need things to be done is impossible to not grow impatient this one's journey or process, because we live The time where everything happens fast is frustrating to have a dream. Dwelling within EU and feeling if it will never happen, is harder still hoping build a dream when the hype has died down and if you Monday in and insignificant. It is hard because we live in a time where overnight success is the trend and almost expectation. By get it I'm there with you. But amid all that, I'm learning that living well is not something that can be rushed resting
in the tender space between life live in dreams fulfilled can't be fast forward? I look at my if journey my dreams, I seem so far away and so impossible, I realise it was never meant to be rushed, has never meant to happen overnight or in a blink of an eye. I was meant to live in this constant attention, because it is an invitation for me to find the dream in front of me: isn't invitations to growth and discover it home hardest, positioned in where my mind is focused shape. So much of how a show up in this space please a fuel to manage oneself well is gratitude. Gratitude is powerful, is so simple yet carries weight gratitude and shift your heart. He continued, he's too what matters again, completely rearrange your perspective. We cannot live well without gratitude. We cannot sustain our dreams with our gratitude.
Not always easy to choose. It is easier to compare, even though it hurts It's easier to complain, even though it changes. Nothing is easier. Criticise others, even though it won't make us any better. Caesar to do all those things, because it doesn't require much from us to do, but gratitude causes higher which is us to see the beauty and what we have right now. It celebrates the little things it finds piece in the now does not forsake dreams or shame hoping for more. No gratitude increases our capacity to receive A manager, dreams and hopes it possessed Our hearts to be humble impatient, hopeful and persistent. So today is a new day disguised hey. I didn't feel the chill in my bones. Even so, I will choose gratitude today. Our choose to be thankful, for what I have now in fine joy in it.
I won't bemoan where I am I'm all combined my journey as I build this wondrous life and as I live my life, I awkwardest. The success of others more judge their journey. Now I will choose gratitude given permission to.

The example she mentions, like fast wording through commercials granted we'd often channels during commercials back in the day those our way of getting around the commercials, but so many things that would take a long time or a lot of effort like getting corrections instead of GPS, slow internet calling one instead of email or text.
