There are miracles in me waiting their own turn to happen

My wife and I recently finished watching the 46th season of the TV show Survivor. To keep the viewer’s interest the game moves faster and has many more twists and turns than a formula one race.

Instead of a 39-day format each new season is squeezed into 26 days where a widely diverse group of people are placed on an island where their physical, mental, and social skills are tested to their limits and beyond.

I’ve added the word beyond because of the transformative impact this game has on many of the contestants.

Along with the potential of winning a million dollars, a high percentage of players discover new levels of grit and determination that laid dormant prior to the challenges they face by the game and their opponents.


What miracles in you are waiting their turn to happen? How can you rally your belief in yourself to not only survive but thrive playing the game of life?

Space is where miracles happen

If you happen to be a fan of Star Trek you may have always believed that space is the final frontier.

Keeping your feet planted here on earth, where are you present to the space between things in your life?

How much physical space do you have in your personal and professional environments to breathe and be your best?

How much head space is available to do your best thinking and most creative work?


What wonderful things might happen in your life if you made more space for the miraculous to occur?

Where do you need and deserve this space the most?

Take time to see the quiet miracles that seek no attention

Let’s go on an imaginary scavenger hunt.

We are hunting for miracles. What do you see in your immediate surrounding? Look up. Look down. Look right and left. Zoom in. Zoom out. What miracles did you notice to put on your list?

As John O’Donohue seems to know, most miracles are basically silent. They don’t scream look at me, I’m a miracle for you to cherish that you missed in all of your busyness.

In most cases, if the decibel levels of life are up, the likelihood of experiencing a miracle are low.


How can you more fully experience and appreciate the miracles in your world that seek no attention?

How could more of these quiet observations add to the richness of your life?
