Ordinary Miracles September 2, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Gratitude, Happiness, Life Balance, Mindfulness.

Each day is full of ordinary miracles, with moments of unexpected pleasure waiting around every corner.

When we remain mindful, fully connected with life and tuned in to the moment at hand, we catch these little gems as they are tossed our way.

Life becomes less a chore, and more an exciting endeavor, when we enter the flow of life, with gratitude in our heart and a smile on our lips.

Just for today, keep your eyes open for the ordinary miracles in your life:

Good Vibrations ~ a genuine smile from a stranger, a steaming mug of aromatic coffee or tea (reminding us that our cup overflows with joy), an enveloping  sense of well-being, a comforting hug

I-love-you-this-muchLove and laughter ~ a sticky hug from a child, a renewed connection with a cherished friend, steadfast devotion from a loyal pet (or spouse!), the delight of a well told joke

Flowing Grace ~ finding our car keys first try, a string of green lights, a parking spot in just the right spot, feeling good in our “skinny” jeans

Joy and Peace ~ a song that makes our heart soar, a breathtaking sunset or sunrise, a subtle breeze stirring the treetops or tugging our hair

Abundance and Nourishment ~ the taste of summer wrapped up in a perfect peach or saucy tomato, a hot bowl of hearty soup on a cool evening, a cold drink on a hot summer day

Beauty and Wonder ~ watching an eagle in flight or the silent flutter of butterflies, absorbing the night sky on a cloudless night, pondering the perfection of a single grain of sand

When we remain mindful of ordinary miracles, we begin to see, touch, taste, and FEEL the flow of life.

As the constant chatter of our monkey minds slows down, our awareness of simple pleasures grows, and we are showered with perfect moments with increasing frequency.

Be Here Now.

Thank you for this post. God indeed speaks into the ether everyday and in so many ways, “I love you.”

God is the breath inside the breath. – Kabir

As a result, inner peace and happiness is always there for the asking. But we must remember to ask. ; )

How can I keep from singing?

Sending you a few recent photos of some of “my” butterflies via e-mail They keep me singing, and moving about, and engaging in a physical recovery.

as i embark on a pretty scary road to a life-altering surgery in a few short weeks, i really found this post helpful and uplifting. thanks a ton!

nrhatch - September 2, 2010

Oh, good luck, Amy!

When I had surgery looming over my head, I refused to worry about it ahead of time.

I decided to enjoy every moment (just in case):


Hope you are able to do the same.

Hi Nancy, finally got a chance to visit with you. Love this post. Sometimes people are looking for the big miracles that they never see the everyday, ordinary ones. If we try, we can see one every minute. Thanks for the reminder.

Sometimes the “skinniest” detail can have an enormous impact on how we view the world on a given day.

Have a fabulous Friday!

“Constant chatter of our monkey minds” – perfect. I really do need to slow down the chatter; thanks for the reminder. Ordinary miracles really are around us.

nrhatch - September 3, 2010

Our monkey minds are racing, racing all the time . . .

Slowing them down provides great clarity.

Thanks, for stopping by, JRC!
