Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is.

SparkPeople's Comments

What do you appreciate and what do you ignore? Is a sunrise any less special because its image wouldn’t make it on a magazine cover? Is any day less precious because, in your mind, “nothing special happened?” For some reason, it’s hard to be impressed with anything these days. Driving a car is a source of strain instead of wonder. The internet is already old news. Quick, when was the last time you paid attention to a space shuttle flight? Remember when that was all people could talk about? Once you take something for granted, you also take the life out of it. When nothing is “special”, boredom and gloom aren’t far behind. Look around where you’re sitting right now, and try to see it for the first time, like a child would. Think about the human potential that created the stuff in the room. Think about the miracles of nature right outside your window. Think about how amazing it is that you’re even here to see it.

Beautiful quote. Even here, in the place where I'm sitting, there is beauty and miracles. There are children laughing and people caring for each other, helping them heal.

Some people laugh at me because I get so excited about "little" things such as the change of seasons, flowers, butterflies, steaming breath in the cold air... I smell babies because they have the best smell in the world, marvel at how toddlers learn to talk (I haven't got kids, but I have plenty of nieces and nephews), I look at the stars and think how small we are. But I don't care if someone laughs, because for me these things are what make life worth living. Life is amazing, after all.
