Finding the extraordinary in the ordinary.
It’s all a matter of intention. There is so much to be grateful for, so much to be in awe about. Life is precious and extraordinary. Pay attention to this fact, and little, ordinary things will take on a whole new meaning.
~Richard Carlson, PhD, American author of Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff…and It’s All Small Stuff
Before you start your day, do you set your intentions? When you consciously take a moment of silent meditation and visualize well, it is amazing how magically the day unfolds before you. If this is a foreign concept to you, go within and ask your intuitive heart what you really yearn for. Receive the first thing that comes to mind, and set your intention that whatever unfolds in your life today will rise to this yearning. Speak faith over your life with impeccable words of success for the opportunities that will be your gift to experience. Stand in gratitude, staying present to life’s precious moments. When you set your intentions each day, ordinary events will take on extraordinary meaning as they take you to a place of greater peace and joy. The key to all of this is to find a way to stay still so that you can hear what your life is saying and then be able to respond accordingly. When you settle your mind, all the negative chatter subsides. When you cherish moments of silence, you will see magic as the veil is lifted. If you intentionally seek, you are sure to find what you most desire. You just have to get silent to hear, and for this simple notion, be grateful!
