Magic and Miracles –
Later this morning we will have an opportunity to watch the clock say 11:11 on 1/11/11. This afternoon at 1:11 we will get another chance, and tonight at 11:11 we will have one more. So what’s the big deal about all the 1’s? If you decide it’s just another moment in just another day, then of course, for you, it is not a big deal and absolutely nothing will happen.
If you realize you are standing in front of a series of open doors and that you have all the information, courage, and self-worth you need to walk through into the life of your dreams, than you will. If you have absolutely no idea what life will look like on the other side of that open door, but you believe it will be beautiful, then it will be.
Do you remember Dorothy’s search in the Wizard of Oz? She kept seeking someone else who could grant her wishes. At the end she discovered that the power to go home had been hers all the time. She just needed to believe.
May today be the day you believe with a whole heart that the doorway is right in front of you and wide open. You have 3 magical chances to walk through. I’m going to borrow a line from one of my favorite Office episodes – “Scott’s Tots” (and change it a little bit): Hey, hey, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do to make your dreams come true?
Maybe walk through that door?
