A Different Kind of Magic…

“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”  ~Roald Dahl

Dear Universe,

Halfway through March, already?  I wish I could say I have made progress these last couple of weeks, that I have gotten into a productive routine, but I’m still not back where I’d like to be.

Well, maybe there is one nugget of progress?  About a week ago, I started reading The Magic.  I received it unexpectedly as a gift and was instantly thrilled since I was planning on getting it at some point soon.  It’s the third book written by Rhonda Byrne, author of The Secret.  (Hmm, maybe I used law of attraction to send the book my way!)  Anyway, I started reading The Magic on a quiet afternoon hoping to discover what the “magic” is and thinking I could breeze through it in one sitting.

Several pages in though, I realized Rhonda had other plans for me.  You see, it’s meant to be read day-by-day for twenty-eight consecutive days.  Each morning (or sometimes the night before) the reader is given specific instructions on practicing gratitude.  I had no idea the book would be like this, but I’m glad it is about ways to feel and show gratitude since that’s something I try to focus on daily.

And so far I am keeping up with it.  I have the book right next to my bed so it’s the first thing I see in the morning.  No matter how busy of a day I have ahead of me, I take the time to read the designated intention.  I may not always do exactly as I’m told, but I do take something from it and am more mindful of the topic as I move through my day.

I don’t know if I’m feeling the “magic” yet, but I still have a many more days to go.  My plan is to stick it out to see and feel what happens.

Thanks for sending some magic my way.  I have a feeling nothing but positive things can come from this.

With Gratitude,



I'd love to hear from you!
