Next Time You Breathe, Notice It Is A Miracle

Equilibrium June 20, 2008


Taking things for granted is the way most of us live our lives; right up until we see or experience something that brings us up sharply. Flicking on a light switch or turning on the tap for a kettle of water may be an automatic and casual act to us. To the mother sitting holding her starving child in Ethiopia or the father trying to protect his family in Afghanistan those tiny acts would be seen as miracles.

Miracles are not those rare, cataclysmic and mind-altering events that only seem to happen to others; they are the tiny things in our everyday lives. We just need to notice them.

Part of the role of an Emotional Fitness Coach is to mirror back to you the experiences you are having in a way that encourages you to see them as little short of miraculous. When a client of one of our coaches recently told her that he had just been through one of the hardest periods of his life and went on to describe the traumas he had faced, she was able to help him to see the inner strength that enabled him to seek support, something he had not done before.

“You’re right,” he reflected. “It’s a miracle for me to have asked anyone for help. I always believed that I had to work everything out for myself. Now that I’ve started doing this I realize how much I’ve been missing.”

We can create the small, personal miracles for ourselves whenever we want. It helps to notice the miracles first, like being alive; like breathing.

In peace
