The Basket Lady
Recently, in the Good Humor Town, while standing in line at the local post office, a woman was talking to another woman about her list of New Year's resolutions; and all I could do was smile because I wasn’t about to be the first one to tell her that a “list” of resolutions was a tall order to fill.
I can, so to speak, share from experience that when I started out with a list of things to do or changes that I wanted to make in my life-I wasn’t very successful because I became overwhelmed, stressed and eventually just gave up on my New Year’s resolutions.
Nah, I don’t waste my time making resolutions for the New Year when every day miracles are as close as, well, our breath.
We all have the power to create practical miracles-changes that fill our lives with confidence, joy and love and they include forgiving someone who has wronged us, relaxing during times of stress, feeling good about ourselves, and so much more.
Accepting that basketfuls of miracles are possible, encourages you to open your mind and heart to the realization that much more can happen for your good than you can now imagine.
Believe that every day miracles are possible. To be motivated to change, you must believe things can change and to strengthen this belief, gather information about miracles occurring around you. Collect news stories about people making positive differences. When friends make positive changes in their lives, ask how they did it.
What keeps us from creating our every day miracles has to do with getting “stuck” in the habitual thinking of, “I want to be happy, successful, and healthy right now, instead of recognizing those things that block or trap you from reaching your deepest desires and dreams."
Believe that every day miracles are possible. You are a living miracle. Prove it to yourself by tapping into your creative heart and mind by doing something kind for someone today. Make showing a kindness a vital part of your resolution-keep the miracle of kindness as close as, well, your breath.
Kindness not only counts but it adds up!
We miss you every day, Dot Sanchas! Until then, smile and live in the present.
