“Rejoicing in ordinary things is not sentimental or trite. It actually takes guts. Each time we drop our complaints and allow everyday good fortune to inspire us, we enter the warrior’s world.” – Pema Chodron
Welcome to week one of Common Miracles! I am *so* excited because I didn’t know if anyone was going to join in, or even care (it’s always a bit of a gamble, putting something “out there” when you are online…) and this week I have gotten several comments and emails from people not only encouraging me but also wanting to participate! Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for being part of this. As we go on, I hope to be able to take the opportunity every Monday to talk a little bit about how different people are approaching this. I’d love to hear your take on the idea, suggestions, etc. Anything you might be thinking about.
So far, I’ve had the pleasure of reading Lani’s list and met several new folks who traveled here via her link. Thank you, Lani!!
Common Miracles is a project I started in May, 2011 to chronicle all the little (and big!) things that happen during regular days that bring us a sense of well-being. It’s an effort to recognize the small things that make life more worth living. For the whole story, please visit the very first post about this project, located here.
Want to join in?
All I ask is that you link back to the first “Common Miracles” entry so that people can learn more about this project and make their own lists. The URL for that entry is: <a href=”hhttp://miracles.gingerblue.com”>The Common Miracles Project</a>
Create your own list on your blog and let me know about it by sharing your specific URL (the one direct to your Common Miracles, if you can…) using the InLinkz widget below [note:you may have to go to the webpage to see the widget- not sure if it’s showing up on the RSS feed…]. If you post more than one list this week, feel free to return to this page and add another entry with that link.
