Life is an absolute miracle. You are a miracle. To sit and contemplate the very nature of existence is in itself a miracle all its own. Living a life of dignity and honor is a miracle.
The complexity and absolute beauty of the world around us is incredible. Each plant, animal, and element is a miracle of creation. Do you not sometimes look at something in awe?
Know that the same elements of creation exist within you. You are positively miraculous each and every morning as you awaken and prepare yourself to tackle the tasks of the day.
You are miraculous when you form an idea and begin to draw out the first stages of its completion onto a napkin. You are miraculous as you present that very same idea to a board of investors a few years later. You are a miracle as you achieve your dreams.
To be human, to be alive, and to breathe is in itself a miracle – a miracle worthy of true celebration.
Take time out to reflect on the magic and beauty of life. Too often we get hung up on mundane things, blinding ourselves of the beauty that unfolds each day before our eyes.
Open your eyes and know that you are a miracle.
I need to slow down sometimes to reflect on the beauty of life and pay more attention to the miracle of life that stands before me each day in the mirror. I need to love myself as if I were a miracle.
I realize I can’t abandon all of the mundane things right now and immerse myself into a state of bliss, but I can be more aware of the small, beautiful moments of life as they pass me by.
Each time I notice a beautiful miracle, I will capture the beauty and be in its presence for a while, if but only a moment. These small moments of beauty will add up and over time I can believe in wonder again. I will see life as a beautiful place again – as if I were a child.
If I were a kid again, that’s what I would do.
