Miracle Monday

Every other Monday I set my phone to remind me of specific events in my life that I consider miracles.

I’m not religious, and I’m very spiritual. Many of the miracles were signs delivered by nature, some by people, some by what could otherwise be considered unbelievable coincidence.

Some saved my life. Some saved the moment. All reminded me to keep living.

“Confirmation bias” is a scientific term meaning you see what you’re looking for. Looking to reinforce your view that people are dangerous? Look for examples and you’ll find it. That doesn’t prove people are unsafe–only that you were looking to find evidence.

You could look for confirmation of miracles instead.

Or you could just look at everything as it happens, good, bad, and indifferent. Some people call that “living.” Being aware and accepting what occurs, some would call “mindfulness.”
