What am I missing today? The sad thing is, if
I'm missing stuff--wonders and miracles--it's my own doing
that's causing me to miss it. I "take my little
hand and cover my eyes" by being too busy, too
preoccupied, too worried, hyper-focused, or just plain
inattentive. Or I'm just too used to everything, and
I've allowed the miraculous to become mundane--but it's
mundane only in my mind, nowhere else. The fact is
that it's still a wonder, but my own perspective has
relegated it to the status of normal.
So how can I take my hand away and restore my sight?
First of all, I need to be aware more often that I'm
actually surrounded by amazing miracles, for if I know
that I am, I can remind myself to look at them. And
then I can start actively looking at things like the trees
and the cars and the flowers and the people and the houses
and the sky all about me and ask myself seriously--
answer--what's miraculous about that?
It's rather simple, but it isn't at all easy.
Please don't see nothing! The more you open your
eyes to the miracles and wonders about you, the more
magical life becomes. And the more magical it
becomes, the more you can live your life fully and
completely, and you can feel your spirits lift and your
heart soar. The miracles and wonders of the world
can have a tremendously positive effect on our lives, but
only if we notice them and appreciate them.
