"Hope arouses, as nothing else can arouse, a passion for the possible."
William Sloan Coffin, Jr.
'If at first an idea isn't absurd there is no hope for it.'
Taking pleasure in the smaller things that often escape our notice makes us more conscious and engaged. Because we tend to be so busy, it is often the larger things that we do, see and experience that command our attention. Just reducing the pace of our activities, however, helps us to recognize the wonders that are an integral and vital part of our lives. Instead of living on a grand scale, we then begin to realize that our real experiences of life lie in the miracles of the everyday. Bringing greater mindfulness to your life today will point you to a wondrous world that you may previously have overlooked.
"Tis grace that brought me safe thus far.
Tis grace will lead me home."
John Newton ("Amazing Grace")
