“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
I’m not one to live my life desperately seeking the next miracle. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t believe in miracles, it’s just that I have a stronger belief in the power of personal action. However, above the fray of my own rudimentary existence there is a world of wonder that constantly amazes me. I mean, just think of all the magnificent intricacies that even make life possible. Then to see the beautiful vistas and all of variety of creatures of land, air and sea, It takes my breath away! It does seem miraculous to me! When I realize that I am very much a part of all of that, why shouldn’t I see my life as equally miraculous?!
Everyone will have their own opinion on what constitutes a true “miracle” – I’m not here to argue that. From my observation, it appears that people who see life as a very special gift worthy of awe live a much fuller life. If that is true, therein lies the choice.
