Well, this time I published it! Ooops!
So, what's the best way to fix an oops? One option would be to feel so embarrassed that I didn't touch the blog for a long time. Another would be to pretend it wasn't an oops and that I intended to do it just that way. I'm choosing the third option - to confess it and to eventually finish my actual thoughts. I think it's important to take responsibility for things - including mistakes.
So, on to my thoughts about miracles.
Miracle WalksI read my friend Galen's post yesterday over on her blog 10 Steps to Finding Your Happy Place (And Staying There) and she had written about miracles. Show me the miracles! (Instead of show me the money!)
I love the idea of that and have often relied on a variation of that myself. I'm always looking to glean as much as I can from any particular experience. Sometimes this requires some extensive reframing or changing my view point. Other times it involves forcing myself to open my eyes and be in the moment.
One idea she had was a miracle walk which is actually something I do often with my camera. I just called it by a different name - my "around the block" project. I often go for a walk around the block with my camera in hand. And I look, see, experience, feel, and capture all that I can that is interesting or beautiful. Sometimes it requires a bit of searching. And sometimes it requires a bit of motivation - like in the winter.
But, it's the times you work the hardest that the richest rewards are found. Here is an example of an image I found on one of my own little "miracle walks". (Speaking of miracles, the image upload is fixed!!! Yay!!!! Time to fix my other posts.)
And, yes, it's true...the last miracle walk I took was in the fall. I guess I'm over due...
Do you take miracle walks? What do they look like for you?
