GONE VIRAL!!! National “Lucky Green Day”, October 28. A SINGLE DAY CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

A VERY BAD DAY went “AWESOME” due to the influence of an amazing, heartfelt child!

Inspired by A. Johnson

National “LUCKY GREEN DAY”

National Green Lucky Day October 28

National Green Lucky Day
October 28

A SINGLE DAY WHEN…

1) EVERYONE WEARS AND NOTICES GREEN…

TO REMIND YOURSELF AND OTHERS TO…

2) APPRECIATE AND FEEL LUCKY FOR WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE!

3) SHARE with the WORLD what you feel “LUCKY” to HAVE in YOUR LIFE TODAY!

WHAT ONE NOTICES IS WHAT ONE’S LIFE BECOMES! 

Rush, Rush, Rush… Need to get it all done! Hurry, Hurry, Hurry… Need to get somewhere! Nothing is going right!! I’m so tired! I’m so behind! I wish my life was different! I wish I had more! I’m so grumpy!

Suddenly,  my beautiful daughter, full of spirit, energy, and genuine happiness walks up to me wearing GREEN!!!!

“Mommy, today is NATIONAL “LUCKY GREEN DAY!”  “We are starting the day over!”

I was initially confused about my daughter’s purpose and what she was trying to teach me.

Yes, Honey…  GREEN is really LUCKY, Thank you!  I need a lot of “LUCK!” — not even taking time to look into her eyes and being to busy to understand what she was REALLY telling me.

“No Mommy, today is NATIONAL ‘LUCKY GREEN DAY’ … I’m inventing it!”

NATIONAL “LUCKY GREEN DAY” is a day when EVERYONE wears GREEN and … it’s kind-of-like St. Patrick’s Day and Thanksgiving mixed into one.

On this special day, when you wear green, EVERYONE IS REMINDED OF WHAT THEY’RE ALREADY LUCKY FOR because, you know, we actually are really “LUCKY” and we already have a lot more than we appreciate!

The next thing you know, our entire family was wearing GREEN despite our starch resistance, and my continued grumpiness.

Suddenly, I was reminded of an inspiring quote by Oprah Winfrey.

As I continued to shuffle around our home working, I noticed myself becoming more and more aware of GREEN everywhere!

I noticed a profound mental shift happening and I continued to become more and more mindful of GREEN!!

GREEN was in EVERYTHING!!!

The more I thought about “Green” the more it APPEARED!

The more I thought “LUCKY” the more I felt “LUCKY”!

The more I thought about “GREEN” and “LUCKY” the more they became my reality!

Could my daughter’s idea be teaching me the reality of the appreciating what I already have and the Universal Law of Attraction and Thankfulness?  Yes, my daughter was teaching me the Laws of the Universe!

 Albert Einstein says it ALL!

Despite this awareness, and as the day went on, I noticed myself over and over again focusing on my “To Do List” and missing out on life.

Out of the clear blue, I suddenly “REALIZED” that there will ALWAYS be a “To Do List,” but I MUST take time each day to REALIZE, ENJOY, and be THANKFUL for what I ALREADY have…  TODAY… For by focusing on GOODNESS  … more GOODNESS will come!

The TRUE GIFT of LIFE is to allow more GOODNESS in each day and to be mindful and aware of what we ALREADY have!

In my daughter’s words, “Think about what we already are lucky for NOW, instead of what we hope for! Be Aware and Feel Lucky for What You already have! I put on my calendar October 28 for National “LUCKY GREEN DAY”… A day in the future that the world can celebrate! I hope everyone celebrates starting this YEAR!”

So, Just for TODAY… may we SEE, DISCOVER, APPRECIATE, and FEEL our own “LUCKY GREEN”!

May we become more AWARE of the things we ALREADY are “LUCKY” for “TODAY”!

Just as I started to enjoy the moment, my daughter runs outside to tell me:

“Mommy your song, The Climb, is on the radio!”  Tears rolled down my eyes again as I realized from my daughter that hardships will come and go, but I have to keep “Climbing” and “Enjoying” the “Journey” along the way … and for TODAY realizing and feeling very “LUCKY” for what I already have!

✨After a Hurricane Comes a Rainbow- Katy Perry🌈

rainbow, mountain, clouds, ordinarymiracleoflife.com

🍀I have been waiting for the PERFECT time to post this story… the PERFECT time is NOW…But, in my own Hurricane, I’ve managed to lose my previously written words and story that I had written months ago!

Why do I want to share today?

1.) 🙏Hardships: Through hardships, I was again gently reminded of how an AMAZING song and the impact of others (whether they know it or not) can help one get through a moment, a day, or a lifetime in a better way!✨🍀

2.) 💐Suicide: Someone VERY close to me recently decided to seriously attempt to take their own life. It had a profound impact on me… Realizing that we need to continue to come together to help those in need. Well knowing that at some point in time, EVERYONE needs help, support, love, and unconditional understanding. Truthfully, prevention is the key, because in my heart, suicide is NOT an option. Everyone has so many gifts to share with this amazing world and others… Sometimes it just takes a little time to discover them. I can assure you that with time, each hardship can teach one very important lessons of life…

3.) 🌈 Move On: Despite our own hardships and storms, we need to constantly discover new ways to help us through with the ultimate challenge of moving on to the greater gifts of life!!!

4.)💫✨ When I write, it helps me refocus and enjoy life in another way… Again! Writing is almost as great as meditation… It helps me re-center my life and my soul.

So, I will try to re-tell my story knowing that I don’t need to say too many words because Katy Perry really says it all in the song, “Fire Works” that I will link!

😢 Bottom line… I was in tears… Crying on the floor in my basement bathroom.

My life I felt was a mess! My house was a mess! I was behind in everything! I was in the middle of a non-stop downward spiral!

Financially… We were losing everything, the economy had hit rock bottom and we part of it! Emotionally, I couldn’t seem to pull myself back together. No matter what I did I continued to get worse and worse!

At this exact moment in time, my daughter walks into the bathroom… I knew I should pull myself together…, but, I couldn’t. It wasn’t in me… No matter what anyone had ever said to me… I couldn’t do it… I didn’t have enough energy… Even for my daughter.

😢I just sat on the ground and cried… And cried… And cried…

Retrospectively, why did I perceive my life to be in such a huge downward spiral… But, really my life was and is amazing. Why couldn’t I see this at that time??? Why was I mentally so weak?

“Mommy, let’s go outside and play,” my daughter responded.

Nope… I couldn’t pull out of it… I sat there and cried and cried.

Suddenly, my young daughter, started to sing “Fireworks” by Katy Perry… Over and over again!

Tears rolled down my eyes… “Yes, I am paper thin… Drifting through the wind!!!”

As she sang it over and over… I realized something so important…

Yes… This is a moment in time that is extremely difficult… But, Yes… I am beautiful, amazing, and a unique “Firework”!!! Ready to learn and grow from hardships… I had to immediately choose to change my mind set.

✨But… “Only I could ignite my own spark!”💫🌈

I suddenly stood up… My daughter walked over to me and wiped the tears from my eyes…

I realized that I had to CHOOSE to be stronger then my own Storm… And CHOOSE to create my own happy and peaceful LIFE!!

✨Most important was for me to learn and grow from my hardships… And, to CHOOSE to be a better person and ENJOY and APPRECIATE the GREATNESS that I already had!!!✨

If I focused on ALL the hardships… My life was Hardships!

✨🍀If I focused on ALL the Great… My life was GREAT!💫✨🍀

It was up to me!!!

🎉And at THIS EXACT Moment in time I decided to make a 360 degree turn and change my life for that day! Realizing that I will always have ups and downs… But knowing that is up to ME to choose how I will respond and ultimately experience my life! 🎉

✨What I have learned is that for each hard time that I am able to get myself back up again… The next time is easier… Easier because I have learned from before and know there are so many different tools to help me! I trust myself and the universe to give me what I need!✨

So, today… I encourage you… With all of my heart💝… To REALLY LISTEN with ALL of your SOUL to Katy Perry’s ABSOLUTE and AMAZING song, “FIREWORKs”!!

Be honest with yourself! I can assure YOU, that YOU are a “FIREWORK” and that YOU should let your FIRE SHINE!!!!

💫YOU ARE PERFECT and AMAZING just the way YOU ARE!!!💫

✨With Much Love and Light to Katy Perry and her ENTIRE crew! Sincerely, thank you for helping me change my life with your work!!!

Today, I am so grateful for the genuine kindness of those who are part of my life; yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Yesterday our neighbor, who is handicapped and uses a wheel chair for transportation, asked a favor of me.  He asked if he could borrow our hose to water his blooming flowers.

At first I said sure… thinking it was a simple task.

Quickly to discover that it wasn’t simple and would take a lot of work and time on my part.

I told him, “I’m sorry, it’s not going to work… I can’t get the hose disconnected.”

Suddenly, I was reminded of the numerous times at the motorcycle track how people willingly helped us fix our sons motorcycle … working as a community to get the job done, and not giving up because it was the easy thing to do.  Because of them, our son was able to race.

I turned to my neighbor and said, “Give me a minute… I can figure this out for you.”

So, it was because of my gratitude toward others for their acts of kindness and service, that I was able to help someone else in need of assistance.  I felt so thankful for the experience, as simple as it may be… but the lesson so huge!

Our community is like a web of life…the more gratitude we have, the more we give… the more we give… the more we receive!!!!

😢 Do you ever feel alone and wonder if what you are doing is making a difference?

😢 Have you ever desired to do something so deeply, but it seemed the entire world had no interest?

😥 Have you ever wanted to convey a message but had no idea how to start?

😥Have you ever just felt lost?

Well, I know you aren’t alone… because I’m with you!

“Ordinary Miracle of Life” Facebook Page- “Like 0”, “Share 0”  !!

Yep!  That’s me!  My dream, My goal, My greatest passion!

Although I have had many visitors to my website (over 800) in the past 3 months, I often wonder why there is little interest in “sharing” or “liking” my posts.  2% of the time (tonight) I feel really sad and discouraged the other 98% extremely excited and continue to see the actualization of my vision.

So, why do I feel so compelled to share my thoughts tonight?  Retrospectively, after writing the entire blog, I realized something very important… Read on…

My heart is sad…but, but with most sincerity I realize I have many lessons that are to be learned.

You have no idea how many people I have asked for assistance in helping with my dream, my blog, my deepest desire to show the world something new with no avail.

As I sit in silence, I have realized that they don’t have the same passion I do… that this is not “their” thing.  Realizing that I must continue on with full force forward realizing that it is “My” thing… My dream!

I have a dream that one day I will be able to show people how to experience life in a different way… To teach them one moment at a time how to access and experience the ultimate pure beauty,  bliss, love and comfort of universal energy and angelic light, realizing it is available to ALL.  To teach one to express and experience the unlimited flow of this energy and ultimately leaving behind boundaries and barriers of ones own self and social norms.

Although my dream of helping others has not occurred at the speed I had visioned, I am compelled to continue to write… I love what I’m doing and feel the deepest of passion to move forward.  I am assured that if I keep doing what I love and it will pay off… Pay off how?? Will I ever make a difference in someone else’s life??? Or, maybe is this merely journey the of my own life?!!

I just heard a TED talk this past week that reported something like this…  “to make something BIG you have to make it worth talking about!!!” (author unknown)

But, how do I make the essence of stillness, happiness, peace, and universal energy BIG???  It seems so simple and little; but, in reality so HUGE and LIFE CHANGING!

I ask you… have you every experienced divine stillness, peace and bliss while meditating… a feeling so pure and beautiful, MUCH GREATER than any substance/person/or thing?    Consider watching one of the most inspiring movies, “Ram Dass, Fierce Grace” on Netflix under documentaries.  It is through so many modalities that we are able to experience this bliss (I suspect I have only learned 5% of the many…. and each day learning more)!!”

I really have believed I have a “HOT” topic to read about and have been very surprised of lack of interest in “sharing” or “liking” my site … But, why have I had so many views of my site so far without me even doing any advertisement?   What am I doing wrong… or what haven’t I realized?

Maybe the idea of stillness, meditation, happiness, peace, and love is not a comfortable thing for people to share. Maybe they really haven’t had time to read it. Maybe I need to come up with more interesting topics or write differently.  Likely all true.

Maybe the idea of seeking happiness and peace within our own self is a sign of perceived weakness?? A sign that something is wrong with us…

This concept seems to make sense now that I think about… It took me 8 years to feel comfortable enough with myself to share my truth… my hardships… in essence my weaknesses and imperfections.  I still remember it took me about 6 months to share with my husband that recently had learned to I loved meditation and learning about Universal Energy – later to discover that he could care less!!  As long as I was happy, he was happy!!

How vulnerable does this make me???

Really… I truly have a lot to lose, my career, my family, my friends, and my reputation.

But really, what is there to lose if I don’t share my thoughts, ideas, and experiences?? Much more!!!!

It is through continuing to realize on a daily basis my weaknesses, hardships, fears, etc. that I continue to learn and grow as an individual!

If you have any idea of how miserable I was 8 years ago….what I experienced… and what I have learned… and what I continue to learn each day you probably would have a different view of me now.

By posting mostly about peace love and happiness doesn’t imply that I am walking in a phony cloud of bliss… It’s because these things help me each day to get through and enjoy my own life and hardships in a new way.

As one opens the door for more happiness and peace… Even more and more is able to funnel in… As you focus on the good… You notice the bad less or in a different way.

When you let go and let yourself truly discover and feel the essence of universal light, peace, and joy you will realize what I desire to show the world.

What I desire to show the world is little starting tips for YOU to venture out on your own to find exactly what works for you!!

Once you continue to be mindful and discover what makes you feel really good, you will continue to seek more and learn more…to go even deeper and deeper…

Divine stillness of the mind, body and soul is one of is one of the all time greatest gifts of life!!!

This concept is truly contrary to what society has created… I believe.

We are a society of go, go, go… More, more, more…. And yes, I am part of this. I enjoy it very much… But, also, I have learned to truly embrace and yearn for the divine essence of stillness with bliss.

By taking the time to have both has truly enriched my life… my mind… my soul.

I initially learned of this stillness through Reiki, later going on to become a Reiki Master… It took someone else showing me how to get to this divine place…

Then, I was able to allow myself to release and relax on my own with songs, meditations, yoga, writing, walking, etc.

I continue to learn each day!!! Somedays I slide backwards, some days I make no movement, and some days I make leaps and bounds!! But most important, each day I accept myself for where I am exactly at that time and move from there. I’m realizing that life is a full of multiple spectrums, realities, and experiences each beautiful in their own way.

So, it is with much sincerity that I continue my journey of writing to the world… Or maybe even just to myself! It is with much passion and trust that my intent is of goodness with the ultimate goal of helping myself and others realize their own truth, light, and divine peace and bliss!

With Much Love and Universal Light! bmj.
