Have you ever wished you could see angels? Sometimes we wish for a sign, a clue to show you the right direction, the best choice, the correct path, anything to help you develop into a smarter, wiser, or an all-around better human. I have searched billboards, fortune cookie slogans, horoscopes, and messages in discarded bottles. They always disappoint me.
When the world seems full of hate, division, and animosity, I meet everyday angels. No, they don’t sport massive wings, wear shiny halos and flowing gowns, and choirs don’t burst into song when they arrive. They manifest as a call from a distant friend who knows the exact words to ease a worried mind. It is the friendly wave from the stranger you encounter on your daily walk.
Compassion manifests when a person materializes to open a door when you carry a heavy burden. Insight forms when a cashier offers a random comment that answers your most worrisome question, and the barista who recommends a life-changing book. Many dismiss these instances as coincidence, a fluke, or serendipity. I like to use them as inspiration.
Fairytales, fiction, and flights of fantasy with wizards and magic reflect these real-life happenings. Those moments of kindness and goodwill confirms my belief in the improbable, divine intervention, and the underlying generosity inherent in every living being. I embrace optimism and trust we will forge a remarkable future.
Will you become an everyday angel?
Keep on writing.
