San Diego Therapist Sara Cole LMFT
Having a two year old in my life has reminded me of how wondrous the world can be.
Seeing “everyday” things through her eyes awakens my own creativity and curiosity. Even though I know the science behind rainbows, bubbles, smoke, fire and stars and clouds and snowflakes, they are once again magical. This “magic” has helped me to focus on the small things and take the time to appreciate them more.
Stopping to watch a bird fly or chasing raindrops with my daughter has become a small gift. These moments are the gifts I want to hold onto and take out again years from now when she doesn’t need me as much and those treasured mama moments are less plentiful.
Where can you find a bit of magic in your day? Look for it and take the time to imagine you are seeing it through the eyes of a toddler. These are the moments when peace is allowed to seep in through the cracks between, the everyday, the to-do list and the auto pilot. Take a breath. Close your eyes and think of something for which you are grateful. Take a breath, appreciate the magic and then go on with your day. But maybe keep that moment and that sensation with you for when you may need it again sometime.
