Practicing what I preach

Over the last few weeks, you may have noticed that my posts have become somewhat sporadic.  There have been logistical reasons for that, but there’s also another truth…

Karen Salmonsohn, a woman who I’ve learned to love through the magic of Facebook, has recently released a new book called INSTANT HAPPY and created a little contest for bloggers.

How much joy can you stand?

I’ve been on a fascinating learning curve over the last week or so (“fascinating” is another word for oh-my-god-this-roller-coaster-is-going-so-fast-and-I’m-not-sure-my-safety-belt-is-fastened.)

I’ve spent the last couple of weeks focusing single-mindedly on my book proposal and accompanying video.

Today I had one of those lovely little moments that makes me smile for a couple hours afterward.  I was third in line to check out at RiteAid.  A woman joined the line behind me, and then a moment later stepped up to the racks of candy under the counter.  She pulled out a pack …

The daffodils

This guest post was submitted by Elaine Stephen. I love the message of it – and especially the fact that regardless of the differences between the spiritual or religious beliefs each of us holds, there is always a place for us to meet when we’re looking at our blessings.  Thank you Elaine!

Miracle through music

I love this guest post by musician Natalia Paruz, who calls herself the “Saw Lady”:

I am a busker who plays the musical saw in the New York City subway.

One day I played at Times Square. A small crowd of people gathered around me. On my right side a …

Laughter IS the best medicine

jimdailakis

Here’s a lovely miracle from comedian Jim Dailakis:

As a world traveling comedian, one of my finest miracles occurred when I was performing in Chicago two years ago. To me, being the catalyst for a roomful of happy people laughing collectively is a miracle in and of itself.

On this particular …

The Miracle Journal video project

boysfromwales

Hey Miracle Watchers!

Today I set out on a new adventure. My dear friend Dan Mitchell (who you may remember from the post Momentary Times) agreed to help me out for the day to get it off the ground.

The concept is that I ask people to talk to me on camera about the things …
