Recalling Magical Moments

Lately, I’ve been so caught up in the hectic pace of life, that I keep forgetting all the beauty and magic that exists. I wonderful friend just reminded me to call to mind some magical moments.

Ten years ago, I went to Ireland. It was truly a magical place, and I experienced so much peace and saw so much beauty. I saw many rainbows, I climbed the beautiful Cliffs of Moher, I met so many friendly wonderful people, and I even kissed the Blarney stone! I took almost 600 pictures on that trip...and that was with restraint!

One moment that really stands out for me: I was standing on a cliff, just taking in the beauty of the sky and the water...the sun was shining brightly, and I heard Enya’s song in my head, "How can I keep from singing..." And I remember thinking, wow, there is so much beauty in the world! It was such a special moment!

It’s too easy to forget these wonderful experiences, so we must find ways to remind ourselves. I remember Oprah talking about how she has this special silver box, in which she keeps special notes from friends, and little reminders of all the special moments in her life...this has inspired me to do the same!

Play with me: call to mind some magical moments...remember the beauty and the peace and the bliss that you have undoubtedly experienced!

Blissfully yours,
Angela :)
