Please Don’t Miss The Magic Of Your Everyday Life
It’s easy to spend your time
wishing for the sparkly bits that life has to offer:
the grand gestures
and the milestone moments
and the monumental things that we hold dear —
but I hope that in the wishing,
you don’t miss
the magic of your everyday life.
Magic like a barbeque on a Friday evening
when the sun is shining
and the bugs are in hiding
and the burgers and beers fill your belly
alongside the laughter
that fills your heart.
Magic like the way the little ones in your life
discover the world around them,
each sight and
each sound and
a new world of possibility.
Magic like the way that particular song
makes your insides calm,
and whole —
as if the notes themselves
were giving you the biggest hug.
Celebrate those milestone moments,
and the sparkly bits,
and the times when it seems like
your wildest dreams have come true —
but don’t forget to pay attention to
the magic of your everyday life,
