3 STEPS TOWARDS WRITING SOME MAGIC INTO YOUR LIFE.
magic is closer
than it appears
There is magic in the everyday, if we can stop long enough to see it. Here is a fun way to catch some magic today.
1. Listen for the laughter of a child today (3's better, cause the
more the merrier, but just one will do.)
2. Remember how you felt the last time you helped someone
without any expectations at all. It might be a simple as
holding a door, carrying a package, or helping your neighbor
catch their dog. It could be as big as caring for a sick loved
one, or anonymously paying a bill for someone else. Just
think back to that specific moment and hold on to that
3. Think back to the very last perfect moment you spent with a
loved one. It could be a partner, spouse, lover, child, sibling
parent or friend. What were you doing? Can you repeat it?
And now, to stir the magic up a bit, write down the first emotion you had for each one of these memories. Then write down the thought that followed it.
Write a short paragraph you can look at every day using these emotions and thoughts. It doesn't have to be poetic, or Shakespearean, perfect or even grammatically correct. It just should be heartfelt.
Print it out on pretty paper or decorate it if you would like to. Place it where you can see it every day.
And voila! Let the magic begin.
