walk through life

Even on cloudy days, the sun will rise.  If you are looking for the beauty, you will see it.

When you walk through life with your eyes closed, you might miss seeing all the beauty.
When you walk through life with your mind closed, you might not see all the other possibilities.
When you walk through life only listening to the negativity, you might not be able to hear the sound of peace.  The children's laughter that brings a smile to your face, the birds chirping in the morning, the stories that other people are telling.  You might miss out on so much love and happiness.
If you walk through life thinking only negative thoughts, you might not see how much positive life there is.  You might not see the billions of miracles right in front of you.
If you walk through life feeling like a victim, you might not be able to feel the joy you have inside.  We have all been victimized in some sense.  Victims of poor health, victims of failed marriage, victims of violence, victims of losing a loved one.  But we all have the choice to not let that ruin our lives.  We have the choice to see, hear, feel, know that there is more life and love in the world than hate.
We are all miracles in this life.  Let us not waste a moment on hate, anger, jealousy.  Instead, take this short time we have to feel with all we are, love with the intent to give joy.
Keep your eyes open to see the beauty in all circumstances because I promise, it is there.
Use your ears to listen with compassion.
Keep your mind open to all possibilities so you don't miss that life changing opportunity.
