How to spot a miracle?

What miracle is in here?

What did you fail to notice today?

When you woke up this morning did you miss the sound of the birds singing?

Did you miss the sounds of your partner breathing quietly alongside you all because your mind was immediately filled with all of your have to’s, shoulds etc?

When you went on your trip to work, did you fail to notice the colour of the sky, the way the light was reflecting of buildings, did you fail to notice the smile from the person who served you your coffee?

Every day we encounter a million opportunities to notice the small things in life, the things that we often take for granted, but things that when we really stop to examine them are evidence of untold miracles occurring around us every day. Think about the complexity of light and reflections, think about the complexity of bird song, think about the complexity that results in someone smiling at you.

A brilliant mind like that of Albert Einstein realised that this was an issue when he said “There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.”

Which way are you going to live your life?

Think back about yesterday……what was the miracle you spotted….. make someone’s day…share it with everyone in the comments.
