Some people are so infatuated with quotes that they can pull one out of their hat for any given situation. How do I know?
Because I”m the guiltiest of the guilty.
Sure, I often spout my favorite quotations to anyone who’ll listen, but I spout them off even more frequently to myself.
Some quotes resonate with me so thoroughly that I don’t just spout them off, I live them out. This particular quote by one of the greatest minds we’ve ever known is one that pretty much defines me. Along with, “All I’m after is a world full of laughter,” this quote about life flies over my own life like a flag.
“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.” – Albert Einstein
What I love most about it is that it’s a reminder to stop. Look. Listen. We are surrounded by miracles every single moment of every single day. Sadly (I think you could even say tragically), many people become apathetic at best, and cynical at worst. They either fail to recognize or refuse to acknowledge the beauty and the miracles that surround them.
Boy are they missing out!
Don’t let cynicism or apathy rob you of living the sort of life we should all want: One filled with miracles everywhere we look.
Make no mistake about it, they are there.
I hope you discover a couple of miracles today,
