Camouflaged in the Common
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”― Roald Dahl
It’s not uncommon to see deer in my daily jaunt into the woods with the girls. Yesterday, two of them were laying down. I almost missed the sighting because they were camouflaged well.
Look for the details in each ordinary day. Be willing to be surprised. Zoom in and zoom out to find the hidden treasures. Our blessings are often camouflaged, hiding right in front of us. Pay attention and participate in this day.
Things are not happening to us rather for us. Our life is not waiting in a distant someday or long gone in the past. It is now in the messiness and uncertainty, in the beauty and wonder. Awaken and reignite your senses to find the extraordinary in a routine walk in the woods. What’s camouflaged waiting to be found right now?
“The human heart has hidden treasures, In secret kept, in silence sealed; The thoughts, the hopes, the dreams, the pleasures, Whose charms were broken if revealed.” – Charlotte Bronte
