Are You Missing Life’s Little Miracles?
Miracles happen every day…Change your perception of what a miracle is and you’ll see them all around you. –Jon Bon Jovi
We often perceive miracles as needing to be jaw dropping, cloud parting, walk on fire, the whole sky lights up kind of magic.
Yes, many of us have experienced major miracles. We have witnessed a loved one’s unexpected healing, or survived a major accident.
But there’s another type of miracle that we often miss. It’s much simpler and quieter-hiding in the wings of life. This type of miracle is in every breath and every moment.
So just what is this miracle? It’s the unfolding of life itself.
It’s the mystique of nature, the kindness of a stranger, or the small child who smiles at you just as you pass by. It is generosity, unexpected forgiveness, and the entire workings of the world itself. And it is the beauty of the universe.
These are life’s hidden miracles-miracles that often go unnoticed. We get so caught up in the past and the future that these little moments pass us by. Unembraced.
Sometimes the greatest things in life are quiet and unexpected. In order to see them, we have to embrace the simplicity of the moment at hand.
