“You either live your life like every day is a miracle or you live your life like nothing is a miracle. And I believe that. And I’m a happy guy.” ~ Robert Herjavec
I love that statement. Think bout that. If you can get yourself—your mind, heart, actions, and reactions—to see every day as a miracle, perhaps we then will live each moment doing what love requires. it reminds me of the song about live like you’re dying. If you know your time is about up, you see every moment as precious. Each moment is poignant. But we can go ahead and try to see each moment as poignant.
We can try to create an expectant heart. Each day something good can happen. Believe me, I know how it is when their is a very, very long line of junk happening every day. We have had our share of tragedy, loss, suffering, etc, But I am certain they are outweighed by the good. I cannot even begin to enumerate the number of people in my lifetime that have been friends or acquaintances or complete strangers who have smiled at me and wished me well.
So why bother looking at life negatively? What fun is that? Remember sweet Pollyanna and her glad game? I know, she had a tragedy that made her question the game. But those who grew to love her picked her up. You just know that she re-learned it. Each day we renew our spirits in Him and those he places in our path.
It brings me comfort and joy to consider that those who read this little post may now be reflecting on this: Can you even begin to enumerate every kind and lovely moment and memory from your entire life? No—don’t go off into the ditch and weeds thinking over the bad, sad, painful things. ONLY think about trying to remember even every moment of the past month when something loving or kind happened to you…..yep, may well be impossible!!
So, every day God gives you and me a miracle. The crown of joy that God adorns for you each day is sparkly and fine. It is good. You are beautiful. In your sun dappled and overcast days, the songbirds sing in your ears and heart. Love to you today!!
Happy Valentine’s Day to you Kate!
Every day IS a miracle! I didn’t always feel this way, but for the past 6 years I have….and my life is immeasurably happier for it!
Ultimately we can only control our own behavior, and taking it a step further, our thinking influences how we act (and react) each day. If we tell ourselves “each day is a miracle”, and truly believe it, our actions will soon spread good vibes and love to everyone around us—and so on, and so on. 🙂
You are so very right.the key is remembering to remember, right? it is so easy to just get back on the treadmill of our days….before we know it, weeks and months can go by. seeing the miracles that are present in our days is a habit that is joyously fun to establish. thanks for stopping by…..hugs!
absolutely every single day is a miracle..even bad days
you are so very right! how grateful i am to have today and every day.
Happy V-Day, sis Kate!!
