Ordinary Miracles

file0001334050942Do you see your life as the miracle it is? Do you recognize the gift of each day? Do you honor and cherish the body you are in, the breath that you take, the sights that you see and the opportunities that you have? “People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child -- our own two eyes. All is a miracle.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh

What in your day have you been taking for granted? It is an important question that we all need to visit from time to time. It is a question we hope to give value to especially before something is taken away or moves on. Placing value, honoring, cherishing and respecting the extraordinary that is in our lives and seeing the wonder of what we have in our life is important.

Whether it be the honoring of the beauty that unfolds around you or cherishing the loved ones in your life. Take the time. Perhaps you can look at the small things in life with a new perspective, delighting the sound of the rain on the window, noting the laughter from children playing outside, relishing the warmth of your pet asleep at your feet or the comforting aroma of dinner cooking on the stove. Appreciation for all we have in our life makes things matter differently.

Can you see the miracle that you are? Can you recognize the beauty that you bring to others lives? Do you value the attention you bring to your efforts, the unique qualities you share on your path or the smile you bring to the face of those whose path you cross?

Check in with yourself today and look for the miracles within and around you. Look at life through these OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAmiracle seeking eyes. Take the time to delight and adore. Make the time to celebrate and honor. See the miracle in what you otherwise would consider ordinary and allow this to add newness to your day.
