“Don’t you know how sweet and wonderful life can be?” –Marvin Gaye
Life can be so much fun when you let it. What wonderful things have you found this week? What wonderful things have you left for others to find?
I encourage you to look at the world as a place where all kinds of wonderful things have been hidden for you to find. Sometimes these are placed in our paths by well-meaning people, just like you, assuming you took to heart this week’s mission. Sometimes they are placed there by nature, like the fresh flower scent you inhale walking past a neighbor’s house. Sometimes they are placed there by circumstance. Regardless as to how they get to me, I choose to think of them all as having been purposely placed in my path in order for me to see how wonderful life is.
Thinking this way, I find that every day can be a little bit like my birthday, filled with presents for me to open. The smile I received today from a stranger, the slipperiness of the street this morning after an overnight snow, talking to a 16 year-old student and having a heart-felt conversation are all examples of wonderful things I’ve found so far.
And there are still a few hours left in the day!
