Awaken Your Day - May 25, 2009 - Miracles Happen

"There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."
- Albert Einstein

We could write essays analyzing and debating what we interpret this statement to mean to us individually. I am sure it has been done. But here.... Why?

Point blank, my view
... if you embrace more moments in your life with the same gratitude, and enthusiasm as you would if you had just experienced a miracle,
... if you give more moments the same value as we stereotypically do for the moments held in the presence of a miracle,
... if we forget all of our troubles more frequently because we are so focussed on the good that surrounds something in our lives, just as we do when we witness a miracle
... if you can make this connection, the quality of your life will drastically improve.
Because you chose it to.

If we choose to recognize and appreciate more moments or events with more passion and gratitude and the realization that there is so much in our lives that is a gift ... we expand our awareness to what we value, and our lives naturally become more enhanced in many ways.

It could be the birth of a child, a step toward a dream, the sun shining on a special day, or food on the table for your family ....

"Where there is great love, there are always Miracles." - Willa Cather

Picture something in your life ... and now you decide; will you embrace it with the same emotion as you would a miracle, some spectacular happening... or just view it as another part of life no different than yesterday? Which one adds color to the picture in your mind?

My life has been filled with Miracles these last 3 months; our son being born is certainly the biggest.
But I also felt the joy of a miracle when I heard from all the people that told me to get back to Awakening their day. I had been at a point where I questioned myself and if it really mattered.

I thank those people for helping me change my perception. Together, here, we will make things happen.

Good morning, and may you find a little miracle to lift your day.
