Turn precious memories into inspirational works of creativity


Inspired by childhood memories - I'll never forget the sounds and the special moments spent with my father on these fishing trips

Each moment is filled with miraclesvery special treasures to discover. All we need to do to see miracles is to look with a spirit of gratitude.

We usually think of "seeing" with our physical eyes. However, when we begin looking deeper than physical sight, we begin to see the perspectives with which we colour our experiences. When we take notice of all that we have to be thankful for, miracles appear.

Today holds the chance to build new dreams, achieve new successes, and show new kindnesses to others. There will be moments in which to see, hear, touch, taste, feel, laugh, and love. Our senses and emotions are the windows through which we view these unrepeatable miracle moments.

Take a few moments just for yourself, and notice what you are experiencing. What do you see? Look around you. Notice the different shapes, colours, lights, and shadows. Listen to the sounds around you. Notice how you suddenly became aware of the loudness, textures, and rhythms of various sounds. Notice also any silences.

Notice the sensations of touch and the awareness of aliveness within you from head to toe. Become aware of any smells, or recall a favourite fragrance such as a bouquet of roses, an orchard filled with apple blossoms, or a rain-drenched pine forest.

Having my daily fix of a Latté! My hair styling salon ‘Une Belle-Vous’ sports a lovely little restaurant and coffee bar, “Bistrot de Paris”, and they serve the most delectable meals and coffees in a gorgeous up-market setting with a lovely relaxing atmosphere. Nothing better than going blond and enjoying a Latté in the process!

Be aware, most of all, of the relationships and friendships that have added joy to your life. Notice the various qualities your thoughts give to each of your experiences.

"We do not remember days, we remember moments."

If you were to list the greatest miracles in your life, what would they be? Think of those special moments you are grateful for. Then share a miracle with someone today.


Special moments Laptop sleeve - Do you remember the days of Drive-In theatres? Sitting in the car, watching a movie, having a snack and making out? Smile! Miss those days as drive-In theatres have disappeared in South Africa with the advent of DSTV.

Synonymous with Drive-In theatres is a roadhouse. Luckily these have still survived the onslaught of progress! Pulling in for a quick snack or, in the case of Harry’s Roadhouse in Randfontein (Gauteng, South Africa) above, leaving your car and having an excellent meal to shame any up-market restaurant at tables in their beautiful gardens.
 
May you continue to celebrate all the wonders and precious moments that make your life special! And may you turn all those precious memories into wonderfully inspirational works of creativity!
