Mini-miracles abound!

Believe in Miracles

I would encourage everyone who lives and breathes to be on the lookout for the mini-miracle. I’m tellin’ ya, if you look closely (and sometimes not so closely) they’re EVERYwhere, people!

It doesn’t take a special person to have them, it takes only the willingness to be open to seeing them.

The mini-miracle is like a tiny little gift which an angel plopped down on your lap at just the right moment. And I’ve noticed that living in anticipation of them … and truly, truly believing … I mean on a heart level, where you just know like you know like you know that they exist … living in this place of expectation just attracts them like mad!

They love this place!

Today I plunked my open-topped bag on the back seat of my mom’s car … After the fact I recall having had this sensation that doing this was not the best idea in the world but sometimes we ignore those little precursor, tragedy-averting sensations, don’t we? 😉

Well, ten seconds into the ride I hear “plop!” and then “chinka, chinka, chink!” as my bag fell over face-first onto the floor, completely upside down. Open-topped bag, remember? Open-topped bag.

‘Course my first thought was, “Oh no!” I said, “I just heard my bag fall down and everything came out of it.”

Mom says, “I think it’s ok, I don’t think it fell.”

Chinka-chinka-chink!

Me, “Naw, it definitely fell.”

Me (reframing the experience), “Maybe there’s something I was supposed to find in there.”

Well, as God-or-fate-or-the-Universe-or-whoever-you-happen-to-believe-in would have it, when I went back to pick up my bag, yes it was fully on its head … everything had plopped out in a neat little upside-down plop (very easy to put back in, actually, because the bag was right over the little mountain of “stuff” keeping it in place on the floor) … and the ONE thing that had fallen away from the pack was this lip gloss I used to use every single day (my friends will attest to the fact that I am a lip-gloss addict) … which I had “lost” … and there it sat, waving up at me, “here I am, here I am, didja miss me?”

I laughed because why did I say, “Maybe I’m supposed to find something in there” right? That’s just the way of the universe and the way of mini-miracles.

Kinda like Santa Clause, you just have to believe. Believe it and you will see it. Like a tiny piece of magic.

  1. Col,

    I absolutely love this concept of mini miracles and I will be on the lookout starting today.

    On the big miracle front- meeting you. Clearly you and I must write a book together one day, you know that right? Or host an incredible video series?

    Thanks for being as wildly abundant as you are!
