Each day brings with it the miracle of a new beginning. Many of the moments ahead will be marvelously disguised as ordinary days, but each one of us has the chance to make something extraordinary out of them.
March 3 - nothing is ever ordinary
The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.
The older I get the more I’ve come to realize there are no ordinary days and there are no ordinary people. Every day holds so much wonder. Every person is special and unique. It is in the little extra things that each one is seen as extraordinary.
As the days of my life have become years, I am always amazed at the speed with which time moves and causes me to often blink in surprise and wonder. But I can slow my pace to really see and feel each moment. It’s a choice I make, every day.
I can slow down the pace with others I meet and greet through out the day too. Taking the time to look into another's eyes and savor the thought that I am not alone, but am sharing this life with others.
We tend to thrive on the exciting and the extraordinary events in life, and forget the every day can be extraordinary, when we slow down and take the time to see it. We only get one chance to live out each day the best way we know how. There are no ordinary days, just extraordinary opportunities.
Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.
