Surprises & Magic

Thursday July 9, 2015 #739

“Each day holds a surprise. But only if we expect it can we see, hear, or feel it when it comes to us.”

~Henri Nouwen

It is said that there is magic everywhere, but only if we have the eyes to see it.  I believe this is true and the simple word to describe it is “optimism”.  Not feeling optimistic?  Don’t worry, optimism can be learned.  It starts by paying attention to the positive things happening all around you and for others every day.  By noticing these positives, you will begin to expect to see more.  Surprises and magic are everywhere.  Do you have the eyes to see?
