"Don't believe in miracles - depend on them."
Laurence J. Peter
Miracles, what exactly are they? I guess that depends on who you ask. To some, a miracle is some sort of mysterious, mystifying phenomenon that only happens on very rare occasions. It's here and then suddenly... poof, it's gone. But if you ask me, I would say that miracles are common day occurrences that take place every hour of every day.
That's not to say that there is anything common about miracles. In fact, miracles are precisely that - miracles in every sense of the word. But to think that miracles are the exception rather than the rule is just plain silly. Our lives are filled to overflowing with miracles.
We've got miracles here, miracles there, miracles virtually everywhere.
"Tune into the presence of miracles, and in an instant, life can be transformed into a dazzling experience, more wondrous and exciting than we could even imagine."
Everything and I do mean absolutely everything about life is nothing short of miraculous. The air we breathe and the water we drink; in fact our very lives are astonishing miracles. Yet we rarely give them a second thought. The mountains, seas, canyons and trees, the clouds and sun up above, each and every one are truly extraordinary in their own right. But we far too often consider them little more than commonplace.
Our entire world is a marvelous, spectacular miracle in motion; a truly incredible experience for each of us to have and to hold. Yet we somehow still find a way to gripe, complain and grouse our days away, never really satisfied with what we have at any particular moment in time.
And millions of miracles pass us by.
"Miracles come in moments. Be ready and willing."
Every second, every minute, and every hour of every day are glorious gift wrapped moments, bite-sized miracles to be savored to their fullest. Yet too many of us somehow manage to miss the grandeur all around, choosing to instead grumble and stumble through life.
Rather than embracing the best of life and cherishing the majesty of the world we live in, we oftentimes get caught up in the hectic hustle and bustle of everyday living. Instead of reveling in the miracle that is life, we sometimes perceive life as little more than a constant uphill battle.
Ultimately, we lose sight of the miracles within, becoming disillusioned, disoriented and lost. Life becomes a struggle - and we struggle mightily. It doesn't have to be this way.
The miracle is not to fly in the air, or to walk on the water; but to walk on the earth.
Our lives are meant to be a joyful celebration, where we treasure each day for the beautiful miracle it is. That's not to say we won't encounter heartache and heartbreak along the way, because we will; sometimes by the truckload. But rest assured, as long as we're willing to bounce right back up and keep looking for the best life has to offer, we will find it.
From this moment on, why not choose to live your life as a miracle? Instead of allowing even one more day to be carelessly frittered away worrying, stewing or fretting over life's problems, why not transform yourself into the wonderful, awe-inspiring, breathtaking miracle you were destined to become? By enthusiastically embracing a positive, upbeat, optimistic approach, where you see everything and everybody as a miracle just waiting to happen, you set the stage for something truly miraculous to occur - a lifetime filled with miracles, one right after another.
The Bottom Line: Get busy making miracles come to life!
