We are surrounded by everyday epiphanies. To get in the habit of encountering them, look each day for two things:
1. Something that surprises you
2. Something that inspires you
Many of us blunder through our lives as though we were asleep. Just being deliberately focused on seeing makes you more alert, more excited, more optimistic. You look, listen, and expect a life-giving surprise. Daily lives are transformed into expectation of meaningful sights. You may see things you have never noticed before.
