Sometimes, we feel a spark,… Sometimes, we are lucky enough to get a glimpse of the truly majestic,… And sometimes, we doubt these amazing, truly AWE-SOME moments and we attribute these sparks and glimmers to chance. We often minimize TRUE miracles in our lives.
Why do we do this? Well, to be completely honest with you I really don’t know. I’m not a physicist. I’m not a neuroscientist, a psychologist, a theologist, or even a genius in philosophy. So what am I? I’ll tell you what I am.
Plain and simple, I’m a believer.
I have a friend who was in an accident a few years back and I can’t remember the specific details of what happened, but what I do remember is that she experienced brain trauma. When I first met her, she was walking with a cane and had a patch on one of her eyes. If I recall correctly, she had to learn how to walk and talk all over again, like she was an infant in a woman’s body.
She has come a long way and endured a great deal, not only physically, but emotionally as well. Healing from a brain injury, dealing with the proceedings of a divorce and caring for her mother. She seems to be thriving. Her most recent update with me via text was that her divorce is complete, her mother is recovering and she is in the process of reconstructing her life.
In response to her update, I told her I was happy to hear about her mom and I congratulated her on the success of her “Freedom Project”. I reminded her the awesome thing about reconstruction was that she could create her life exactly the way she’d like it to be, moving forward in a direction that matches her true desires and she agreed.
Earlier when I said, “Sometimes we feel a spark,… sometimes we’re lucky enough to get a glimpse of the truly majestic,…” The honest truth about that from this believers perspective is our eyes view miracles every. single. day. The real question is not whether or not miracles exist. The real question is, Does the belief exist within your heart? Are you content with chance, glimmers and sparks? Or would you like to maximize TRUE miracles in your life?
You never know who you might inspire. You never know how your choices may change your life and the lives of others. Check out this really cool TedTalk, by Jill Bolte Taylor, I was inspired to watch because my friend shared her journey with me.
Thank you Lesly and Jill for sharing your journey’s with us. You both are inspiring.
