Through participating in Abundant Mamas with Awesomely Awake, we were encouraged to look for the magical moments in daily life. Upon reflection around this concept, I realized that my life is full of magical moments -- moments that exist in the most ordinary of happenings in my daily life if I slow down and pay attention, if I am present to those moments.
Such moments can easily be overlooked, forgotten, rushed through, pushed aside, but are so worth a second look, worth noticing, worth soaking in and cherishing. When I stop and pay attention, it makes a difference. Nothing beats the sweet smile Caterpillar gives me when he knows I am all his and that no one and nothing else is taking my attention.
Are you awake to the magical moments in your life?
