Have you ever had something rather mundane feel completely magical? It happened to me tonight. I was out for my run, which was going very well, surprisingly, when I happened to look around. I was all alone, on a path with trees on one side and a field on the other. The only other living thing in site was my dog. The sky was deep blue, and perfectly clear. It was almost a full moon, and the stars were bright. It was cold out, only a few degrees above zero (Celsius), but it didn't matter since I was running.
Alone, any one of those things would have been completely normal. But combined, to me, it was magic. It was the most peaceful moment I have had in a very long time, and it reminded me why I still try, why I persevere in this harsh world when sometimes it would be easier just to give up.
So, remember, sometimes, when you think that there is nothing to live for, just leave it all behind for a few minutes. Do something do something exhilarating, go somewhere magical, or do something exhilarating somewhere magical. Look around and remember that life can surprise you.
