|Can you spot the angel in the high rise?|
"Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain... To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices - today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it." Kevyn Aucoin
Sometimes I forget. And I take the daily life, the daily experience, for granted. I miss the miracle in the tree, the flower, the old building down on 5th Avenue, the high rise on 11th Avenue.
Gratefully, I usually return to sanity. I begin to bless everything around me. Nothing is left out. Nothing is less than miraculous.
From my own body to the squirrels and pigeons, from the river at the bottom of the park to the mansions up there, in the hills above the city. All of it. I bless the moment, the air, the cloud, the people on the streets.
Today I choose gratitude. Ferocious gratitude. And the more ferocious I am about it, the more the Ordinary Miracle displays itself.
I am blessed. I live in a blessed world.
No matter the appearances.
How about you?
