“There are 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
Wonder and humility are two of the most important traits that any of us could hope to enjoy.
Wonder and humility are two traits that can help us turn normal days to extraordinary ones and ordinary occurrences into truly special events. The planet on which we live can help us to develop and maintain a very healthy perspective about our selves and all the gifts that surround us. Think of all the amazing things that had to happen and the order in which they had to occur in order for you to get to where you are right NOW.
Consider these miracles;
The perfect mixture of natural elements to create air. Sun rises and sunsets. Our ability to move, think, cry, laugh, hear, see, taste, touch and smell. Emotions. Music. Language. Agriculture. Art. Wild life. Cars. Medicine. Phones. Computers. Books. Technology. Stars. Oceans. Mountains…….
When we consider the age, size and scope of planet Earth and the natural wonders that fill it, we can’t help but be humble. This humility can be an important gift when we deal with our fellow human beings, because a humble person will not judge or look down on another person. The humble person recognizes that we’re all of the same “family”, we are all facing similar trials and obstacles in our lives.
Just for today, look at life as a miracle, a gift to be accepted with humility and awe.
When we look at all that surrounds us in simple contemplation, we are richly rewarded by it’s amazing beauty. If we take it for granted, there will be no reward at all.
Remember to pause.
