Don’t wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great. – Orison Swett Marden
I love this quote for several reasons. The main reason is that I am often guilty of waiting for “the big one”. The earth-shattering event that finally sets my life in motion towards the greatness I seek.
It is when we follow the advice of this quote that life is at its best. Enjoy the beautiful little moments that are often ignored. Take those small occasions and make them big and exciting ones. It’s all in the perspective of the mind.
Here in the U.S. we have a holiday weekend that is often spent with family and friends. Whether you are celebrating a holiday or not, I recommend you take the small, beautiful moments this weekend, and cherish them. Make them as memorable as possible, and share them with as many people as you can. Enjoy the wonderful blessings : )
