Believing something is one thing; living it is the miracle.
Savoring the simple.
Noticing the moments compiling into memories.
Being here now.
It all stems from the belief that your something is the one thing you should be living with this very breath.
Instead of constantly searching for that ever-elusive defining moment, open your eyes to the wonder you are in. Right here and now, in this something surrounding you.
Redefine your ordinary.
Embrace the miracle playing hide-and-seek in your everyday.
Ponder the precious routine of rousing your children from slumber each morning.
Relish welcoming your husband home from work.
Enjoy sipping lemonade on a sunny summer evening or curling up with a mug of hot cocoa on a frosty winter morn.
Savor the simple and stop wishing away your days. For all too soon, they will pass and fade into the recesses of yesteryear, slipping like sand through aging fingers still reaching for the wonder.
Today is your day to live.
Right here is your moment to shine.
Don’t wait for the significant to find you.
It. Already. Has.
Open your eyes to see it dancing before you in the form of muddied toddler hands wrapping around your legs, straining to squeeze the love out of life.
Watch it tango through the elementary school where your son’s third grade class thinks you’re awesome for bringing in those cupcakes with sprinkles.
See it waltz across the soccer field where you’ve devoted to coach that rambunctious group of middle-schoolers, all gangling arms and graceless feet.
Hear it dubstep through your house accompanying the late-night laughter of that group of teenagers who know they are welcome in your home.
Believe that every something is your one thing.
Your opportunity to impact lives. The lives surrounding you — wherever you may be.
The world needs you.
It needs your strength and gentleness. Your kind and faithful presence. Your being — being fully alive — in every second of the day. No matter how insignificant you may feel those seconds to be. No matter how much you may be longing for something more. Something bigger. Something beyond what you see in the present. For now, this is your gift and your calling. This day is your day to reach your full potential and purpose.
So step into this moment with gaping heart and arms flung wide to embrace whatever lies before you.
After all, believing something is one thing; living it is the miracle…
