Sunday Magic

Sunday Magic

It is true that we tend to find those things we actively look for.   But it is easy to drive by a beautiful, flowering tree and not see it at all if our thoughts are focused elsewhere.  Unfortunately, our thoughts seem to have a perverse tendency to focus on negative things and miss all the positive things that surround us.  I’m not sure why that is, but I have observed this to be true.

Make an effort to look for the good.  Look for the beautiful and really notice it – if only while passing by.  Fill your mind with lovely things, just as you would decorate a room in your house with beautiful and memorable items.  It takes practice.  But as dancers, we are all very familiar with that!

With daily practice it will become a habit to seek out the magic in everyday life.  And magic abounds in the world, if one simply looks for it.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Motivational Secret #48:  
“Look for magic in your daily routine.”

                Link of the Day:
One of my favorite videos.  The song “Simple Gifts” is a featured part of my latest manuscript.  Working title:  When the Dancing Stopped; it is a ghost story about love and loss in a Shaker village.

Quote of the Day:
“I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.”
-          J. B. Priestley
