Scarcity, Spectacles, and Miracles

Now I know: eclipses are awesome.  But part of me thinks that if they happened everyday, we would hardly pay attention to them.  They would be less than commonplace.  

Miracles happen often, yet we take them for granted.  It's human nature.  We can't help it.  

The fact that we are here, now, in this moment, is a miracle.  This moment will never come again.  It is already spent.  

Yet we spend them like a rich frat-boy uses his father's credit card.  

Like it's unlimited.

What we don't want to come to grips with is that sooner or later, the gravy train ends.

Every moment, every second, every conversation.  It's all worth gold.  

Life hack: be thankful for this moment.  Right now.  Your day will improve tenfold.    

Here's where the magic happens.  We've already taken a moment to appreciate the moment.  Now what?  We've effectively removed ourselves from the center of the universe and are now free to do real work.  (note: 'work', 'exist', and 'play' are all interchangeable here)  

We are left to connect and contribute.  To ask a fellow being: "how can I help?"  

It never happens anymore.  That's why it's needed so damn much.

You might be someone's miracle.
