Once I have spent some time in my intentions and prayer I move on with my day. Throughout my waking hours I simply pay attention. I realize how basic this sounds but in actuality it’s challenging! Think about how much is happening in the world that is distracting and then think about how much we intentionally distract ourselves— it’s endless. In an effort to pay attention and direct my energy in a more constructive way, a way that is inline with how I want to live my life, I have started limiting my time on social media. AH-MAZING is all I have to say about that right now! One of the best ideas I’ve had in a while for sure.
So that’s basically it—I pay attention and when I notice the magic happening in my life I make note of it. I am a believer in that what we focus on we have more of and have noticed in the last week that the more I focus on the magic in my life the more magical it becomes. It’s pretty awesome. The thing with magic tracking is that is isn’t about the “stuff” that I am getting, it’s about paying attention to the goodness and love that is in the everyday and is often clouded over by fear and longing and stress. Focus on the magic—the extraordinary power that underlies everything and that continuously shows me how supported and taken care of I am.
I don’t spend a lot of time judging the magic in my life, weighing one experience better than another. I strive to make things equal and see the merit and value in it all. To me, it’s all magic. The more I pay attention to these seemingly random occurrences the more grounded and moved I feel. I’m at a point in my life where focusing on the positive is just way more appealing to me. Negativity is boring and tired. Seriously.
I encourage you to practice tracking your magic each day and see what unfolds. It’s like looking at the world though the lens of a young person—get excited about the here and how, be curious, show up, say hi, smile and smile often, laugh with strangers and don’t be so afraid of everything. We have a tremendous amount to be grateful for so let’s act like it.
