I know I am not alone in being a creature of habit. Don't get me wrong: I like adventure and new experiences, but I like them even better when they arrive on schedule.
Over the past year, I have been fortunate to witness many miracles: tiny synapses firing into moments of awareness, little hands becoming deft enough to pick up infinitesimally small objects and strong enough to pull a precariously balanced body up to stand. But I am also guilty of letting such moments get lost to the routine of wake, feed, clean, nap; wake, feed, clean, nap; wake, feed, clean, nap.
Our routines all differ slightly - some combination of work, rest, and (hopefully) play - but they nonetheless threaten to lull us into monotony, making us susceptible to losing our appreciation for the unique moments, the small miracles that surround us.
How can you disrupt your routine today? What miracles can you capture?
