There Are No Ordinary Days

No one day is like another, each tomorrow has its special miracle, its magic moment in which old universes are destroyed and new starts created. Paulo Coelho.

Living at the speed we do today, it’s all too easy to miss the magic moments in life.

We’re all so busy just trying to keep up, “staying alive”, as the expression goes. The days turn into weeks, weeks into months and before you know it, in what seems the blink of an eye, years have slipped away.

Metaphorically speaking, we are on an express train hurtling down the track. As we navigate life’s twists and turns, we continually make choices as to which car we will ride in. We move from car to car but it’s always the same train going faster and faster to its final destination.

The pace is frenetic, the stress and strain unrelenting. Life can easily catch up to you if you are not careful. We’re so focused on the big stuff that we can often overlook the seemingly little things and significant moments that can make such a difference to our lives and those around us who really matter.

So how can you reduce the stress in your life and make time to take the “ordinary” out of your day and make it more meaningful?

Here are five suggestions:

1. Practice gratitude. Notice and give thanks for what you have rather than bemoan what you haven’t.

2. Share joy, not negativity.

3. Consume wisely. Pause before buying. Ask yourself; do I need this or simply want it?

4. Pay attention to the effects of the media you consume. Practice discretion.

5. Choose your friends with care. If you strive to be spiritually strong, supportive and positive, seek those characteristics in others and help them develop those traits by living them yourself.

Life is too important and time too short to fritter away on the ordinary.

Whether you want to start another venture or top up the one you have, even if it’s a small, tentative step, there isn’t a better day than today to begin.
