No matter your faith, ‘tis the season for celebrating miracles.
Pretty big ones in fact.
Yet a miracle doesn’t have to be monumental.
It just has to be.
But after this past couple of years when simple things, like giving a hug, became difficult, it can be hard to find the miracles.
Yet miracles happen. Every. Single. Day. We just forget to see them as such.
So what’s today’s miracle?
- I don’t own a single ugly Christmas sweater.
- I overcame my apprehension and wrote a first draft of that story I’ve been nervous about sharing.
- I realized that giving a donation in everyone’s name who I don’t yet have a gift for is the perfect solution.
- A hit most every light when I was feeling rushed and impatient.
- I have a machine that does dishes and another that washes clothes.
- Science. Scientist. Vaccines.
- Chocolate… need I say more?
If you’re having trouble finding today’s miracle, follow these 3 steps.
- Think of 3 things in your life you take for granted. Perhaps it’s your car, your renewed appreciation for hugs, and clean drinking water that comes out of the tap. Or a phone that fits in your pocket, goes everywhere with you and can help you connect quickly and easily with those who are dear to you.
- Now imagine your life without those things.
- Finally, imagine these things being returned to you, one by one, over the course of a couple of months. Which would you want returned first? Would it feel like a miracle when it appeared? Would you be grateful to have it?
Focus on the little miracles that happen every day and bit-by-bit, your life becomes miraculous.
Wishing you joy and miracles this holiday season.
