As I’ve mentioned here before, one of the richest memories of my life is how I used to get up at 5:30 in the morning with my dad. It was our time. We’d eat GrapeNuts and tell each other about the miracle(s) we’d seen the day before. I still try to like GrapeNuts and I still try to look for miracles every day.
Finding the miracles has been harder for me latley. I might notice (my word for 2015) lovely people, places, or things, but I’ve allowed circumstances, over which I feel powerless, to cloud my ability to recognize them as miracles. That’s gotta change.
Here’s how I’m going to change it. Yes/And. I completely accept the reality that YES there are many things going on the world, over which I have no control. AND while I continue to attend to what I can, I’m going to focus on the light, the good, the possible, along with the people doing the light, good, and possible.
YES, the divisions, gloom, fear, and darkness will still be around. My focus, however, will not be as glued to it, as it has been lately. I’m going to focus on the power of miracles. When I find myself tempted to dwell in the negative longer than is necessary, I’m going to seek out AND people, places, and things. AND people, places and things are the miracles Daddy and I used to share with each other daily. I’ll share some of them with you here.
I had to do a lot of rearranging and some deleting from my iPhone this week because I kept getting this message. It was surprising how tough it was to choose what to delete, even though I knew I could retreive it from the iCloud.
YES, I can tell my storage is almost full because I feel overwhelmed because my priorities are out of whack AND I need to fix that by remembering that The Most Important Thing is to remember The Most Important Thing. Then it’s time to do a lot of rearranging and some deleting from my own schedule – without an iCloud even!
Does this ever happen to you? How do you handle it?
