“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” ― Albert Einstein
What are miracles? I think it’s a miracle that I write stuff on the computer, add it to a website and a couple thousand people read it. I think it’s a miracle that I made it out of high school alive. I think it’s a miracle the sun comes up every day and we take it for granted.
I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. When I was in Jr. High school I had a German teacher who at parent teacher conferences told my mother not to worry about me and what I will be later in life. He said, “He will find something in his own time.” I think about that a lot. I have made it through life by doing what is presented to me instead of really trying to plan my life. I am a horse trainer basically because I needed the money, and Nancy Emerson was the first person to call me back after I filled out ten or more job applications that week. What if one of those others would have responded first?
Life is a miracle. We all know that, but what about relationships? Friends, spouses or co-workers. What if I didn’t sit down next to Pam at the barn party and said, “Hi”? I think of life as a series of events that happen, and a series of events that you choose to happen. You choose to go to college to increase your chances of getting a good job. And you choose to not eat McDonalds daily so you won’t die of a heart attack. I think those choices are easy ones to make. The hard ones are the split second choices to say “Hi” or to pitch a business plan on a chance meeting, or to help someone who is having trouble and you think you can help. These choices are the miracles.
