“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

“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.”  -Ronald Daw

I believe in magic…I believe we actually make our own magic by the way we think, the dreams we dream, the goals we set, and our vision for our future.  I believe that when we hope for great things that great things will come.  I believe that when we set our sights on goals that seem bigger than we ever imagined they would be that we set our course for one filled with magic and amazement.  I think our attitude about our life plays the greatest role of all in our level of happiness.  I have seen people with next to nothing material in their lives who are incredibly happy.  I have seen people who are facing crazy hard trials still see the magic that exists all around them.  We choose to make the magic in our lives.  We choose to have hope and faith for good things to come.  We choose to believe that every situation we face is one meant to help us grow and improve and excel in our lives.  We choose to let the MAGIC HAPPEN!

I love the part of the quote that says to “watch with glittering eyes” because I believe that hope is what gives us those glittering eyes.  When we see ourselves as lucky and blessed we will find ourselves noticing our surroundings much more. We tend to look for positive meaning when we feel our lives are lucky.  We notice people and opportunities in our path because we are looking for those lucky encounters to take place – and so they do.  As we head into an awesome weekend ahead I hope we all try harder to watch with glittering eyes the world around us, looking for new friends who come across our path and watching for new opportunities that open up to us.  Most of all I hope we all believe in the MAGIC that exists in our lives because when we believe it, it actually comes true!

Have a great day 🙂
