I came across this quote a while back and it immediately became part of my staying in focus toolbox. I am an avid scrapbook maker and craft person, and I have used this quote to make gifts for friends and family. I’ve used it in cards and on bookmarks. I have put it in magnetic frames for refrigerators and put it in stand up frames for placement on a desk or nightstand.. I have it in my “sacred space” where I meditate.
What better way to start the day than reading these simple words. For something wonderful happens everyday, if we focus on the positives. My father-in-law, now in his 80s once told me that he wakes up in the morning and thinks “Well, I’m still here!” Now that is something wonderful! Still here to listen to the morning song of the birds. Still here to spend time with family and friends. Still here to tend your garden, listen to music, read a book, or learn something new.
Today, on your way to work or school or to run errands, clear your mind and really focus on this marvelous world . The breath of the wind as it brushes your face, the sparkle of sunlight on the water,, the pattern of the clouds in sky overhead.
You don’t even need a camera to focus in and take mental snapshots of wonderful things, but if you are a photo bug, take your camera on a “something wonderful” walk. See how much wonder you can capture in a stroll around the block. Post your pictures for others to enjoy. Encourage others to do the same. Spread the word — something wonderful is about to happen!
