Finding The Extraordinary...

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams of Central PA RS334568

How does one identify an 'extraordinary' moment...??

An extraordinary moment doesn't send out an invitation to prepare one for its grand entrance...
An extraordinary moment doesn't arrive with shouts and a parade demanding our full attention...
Quite the contrary, extraordinary moments show up unannounced, with no fanfare...
In fact, I wonder how many extraordinary moments I have sauntered past without any consideration of its inherent value until I looked back upon it from afar...
Thankfully life has a rear view mirror - so I can reflect back and re-index such moments and recognize that they indeed were extraordinary.

Perhaps extraordinary moments arrive unexpectedly so we can learn to value each moment -
Perhaps the only difference between an 'average' moment and an 'extraordinary' moment is the meaning we assign to it...


I celebrated a beautiful birthday yesterday, surrounded by much love.  I cannot begin to recall the number of spectacular moments contained in the day- yet as I reflect back with gratitude, the day was generously seasoned with a grand dose of the Extra-ordinary...!!!

Cheers to finding the Extraordinary tucked within today...

I think that sometimes life moves to fast we miss the clues. We have to live more in the moment & value it.
