I choose miracles

I choose to believe that life is a miracle. That I always have a choice as to what I do with me, my life and everything in it. I have the power to choose how I respond. How I react to circumstances, to other people, to trials and tribulations — I have the power of choice.

When I choose to look at my life as a miracle, I see miracles reflected all around me.

Now, it’s easy to fall into the habit of not seeing ‘the miracle’. It’s easy to see the fault lines, the pressure points, the sore spots that irritate me and cause me stress.

Whatever I’m seeing or experiencing, I always have the choice in where I put my attention. It’s my choice to not focus on the negatives and find the values in all all things.

So, for today, I shall walk through each moment celebrating the miracle of life in everyone I see and meet and interact with, including me. For today, I shall walk through each moment knowing what I do with my life is always my choice. I can celebrate, or complain. Congratulate or condemn.

The choice is mine.

It’s up to me to choose wisely because in my choices, I can destroy joy or create the joy, happiness, contentment, peace I want to have in my world.

The question is: Can you see the miracle of you reflected back in the eyes of everyone you meet? Do you choose to be like Chicken Little, constantly fearing the sky is falling or do you choose to see rainbows dancing in the wake of your passing through each moment causing waves of happiness and joy?

  1. Thank you for grounding me today. Had a bit of a strange morning at a monthly meeting of women who make quilts for Victoria’s Quilts for the Canadian Cancer society. Your post was most welcome.

  2. I always choose to be happy. It’s so much easier to accept the blessings of life and go forward than to always look for and find the negative then harbor those negative feelings. Some people fight so hard against the blessings of life and what is happening around us that they fail to see the miracles whether big or small. Little miracles happen all the time, we just need to look for them. Thanks for reminding me to look for the little miracles.
