“Ichigo Ichie” the motto in the Japanese tea ceremony which means “one time, one encounter.” This for us is a cue to see every moment as special and unrepeatable; it banishes boredom since no experience is ever the same.
Today will only happen today. Will you treat it as unremarkable, going through the motions as though you have infinite tomorrows? Or will you recognize today and each of it’s moments for the precious gifts they are? I challenge you to be fully present for each encounter today and see if you can’t find the magic in each. It is there if we only open our minds and hearts to possibility.
