We are oftentimes caught up with our disappointments, our perceived inadequacies, the sense that we should’ve done things differently, that we fail to see the other side: that there is so much beauty, that there are many things going right, that every single thing, if we just take time to appreciate it, is truly a miracle.
Take our body, for example. We may have spent much time thinking it “should” be different. We may have thought we should lose 10 pounds or gain 10 pounds, or have better skin, or be taller etc. And yet, we forget that our eyes can see colors, our nose can smell, our ears can hear, our heart beats without us having to consciously do it, when we get a wound our body knows how to heal it. We are often caught up with “what’s wrong” that we see past “what’s right”.
In today’s practice, we are going to invert that mindset. We are going to see every single thing as a miracle. We are going to appreciate everything that is going right. We are going to turn things upside down, and see the positive in every moment.
