Quotes tagged “Miracles”
Opening the drapes in the morning and watching the first sunlight of the day filter in through the window. Sitting down on my yoga mat with a cup of tea, not in my practice yet but just breathing in the steam from the cup, anticipating the breath and movement to come. Walking the dogs and pausing on a cliff to breathe in the ocean, waves crashing beneath me. Making a beautiful meal and waiting a second to devour it, everything perfect and colorful on my plate. Looking up from my computer to see my husband working on something, brow furrowed in contemplation, I notice how beautiful he is. You know when you see someone every day, and after a while you get used to their magnificence? Once a day or so I get that little revelation of "goddammit - how I love this man". It takes my breath away a little.
These moments might not be the big ones, the ones you celebrate or talk about... But they make up our days, these in-betweens. Pay attention to them and you'll see;
there are every day miracles happening all around.”
alert to her next disaster.
Despite being resigned to a life of misfortune,
she became resourceful.
She grudgingly noticed that things always worked out,
even when she claimed defeat.
An inconvenient truth, yet it was right there, in her face,
betraying her self-punishments and assumptions.
She kept overcoming things, dammit, aggravating herself.
She still felt so much joy, despite her efforts to be miserable.
Her life was full of miracles and spectacles that she was afraid
to rely on so she didn’t know how to enjoy, how to be thankful,
She didn’t want to win and she didn’t want to lose.
Ambiguity intrigued her and she found passion in the gaps
between hope and despair.”
