The Significance of 11.11.11

I find it fascinating to read about the numerological significance of 11.11.11. And, I believe the true significance of 11.11.11 is the same as yesterday, and the same as tomorrow.

No one day is less or more significant than the others. For me, today is a day of mindfulness, an awareness of the ordinary miracles every day.

“If we are not fully ourselves, truly in the present moment, we miss everything.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh

I remember when I turned my ankle and pinched a nerve in my calf muscle, resulting in a blood clot. Massaging my swollen calf, the doctor said, “It’s a miracle that you’re not dead.” True, and what about all the other days that I effortlessly wake up without pain or illness? Aren’t these of equal significance, a miracle in their own right?

The best way I know to experience the abundance of life is to recognize the significance of every day and live every day like it’s my last. We are each dealing with a finite number of days here. I don’t want to short change even one.

I have listened to this song by Nickelback several times today. In honor of today, and every day, may we be more mindful of our miracles and grateful for our freedom.
