’That it will never come again is what makes life sweet.”
“Dwell in possibility.”
“Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.”
– Emily Dickinson
What do you think this living thing is all about? Do you stop to consider it from time to time like I do? So many mysteries and magical things happening at any given moment. Many that we easily brush off as commonplace. When we stop questioning do we also stop marveling? Do they link arms these two?
The other day I watched a YouTube video of two young men being timed by their parents as they tried to figure out how to dial a phone number from a rotary dial phone. It was a hilarious struggle. We now have devices that hold all our music, photos while also being able to connect us to almost anyone, anywhere at anytime. Do you still stop and wonder how the hell is it possible to do what it does? We often scroll and scroll and refresh as a way to pass time. Out of boredom. Bored with life?
How does that happen? How do we get bored by the extraordinary ordinary of our day to day lives. You could wake up in one part of the world and go to sleep in another. Something that was once inconceivable.
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. – Albert Einstein.
Which camp are you currently residing in? Remember it’s a choice. Check in with yourself and if your current perspective doesn’t light you up. Choose again. Choose differently. Choose the miraculous.
