Miracles

"Don't wait for miracles, your whole life is a miracle." - Albert Einstein. If you don't believe in miracles please raise your hand... ok for those of you who don't believe in miracles I will show you a picture of myself from 10 years ago and I'm sure if you didn't believe in miracles before you would certainly believe in them after. Even still I know there are cynics out there who will still choose not to believe in miracles and that's ok. Often times when we think of a miracle we think of what's produced, we believe the product or thing is the miracle... shhhh don't tell anyone but that's called the "effect". I'm sure all of you have heard of cause and effect, and with that you understand how it works: drop a rock in a body of water and the water will then ripple... dropping the rock is the cause, the ripples are the effect. When miracles happen in our life it's not the physical wonder that's the miracle, that is the result... the after... the effect. The miracle is the decision to throw the rock... the before... the cause. I have had numerous miracles take place in my life, not just one but several throughout my life. My weight lose for example was a miracle, not the physicality of losing 100 pounds... that was the effect, but the desire... the shift in my mind... the moment I saw myself deserving better... THAT WAS THE MIRACLE. I have had other miracles- some with relationships, the decisions to treat others that I had relationships with better. With my ex-husband I had to make the decision to treat him better... I decided to love him more, even though we were no longer together I didn't have the right to treat him like a no body... that decision was a miracle. I finally realized that his intentions were pure, even though it didn't work out between the two of us his intentions were founded in integrity, he was honorable... so for that he deserved to be treated better... period. The moment I decided to be a better ex-wife to my ex-husband, my life began to change... I finally found work, I had been without work for over a year and finally I was gainfully employed. The miracle of treating others the way you want to be treated is a statement that deserves more revere than we give it. Simple statement but so true. If we began to treat everything as if it were encrusted with diamonds I think we would all have much more to appreciate. The miracle of life is so much more than our conception, development, and birth... the miracle of life is daily, ongoing, and a forever changing event. Miracles happen everyday, and in every way... today I write this post due to a miracle, a thought. The post is the effect (which is pretty awesome) but the real miracle was the spark of insight that caused the writing of this message... the thought that I had and the fact that I wanted to convey that message to my readers. I haven't come this far with out the miraculousness of life taking place... it is something that is real, it is something that I know is true, my life is a miracle and more than likely so is yours. Love & Blessings. - Buttaflibabee
