Show Notes

I had an interesting experience recently at 4AM one morning where my hands turned into a tree. Not literally, of course, but they felt heavier, thicker, and larger than they really are. To me this was a symbolic display of how I was feeling recently with my two young sons. I had been constantly on the go and trying to be super dad 100% of the time - it was wearing me down. 

This experience reminded me of an old truth - there’s as much magic in the world as your heart and mind is open to receiving. And there’s none if you choose to close yourself off from it all. If we remember to just do less, to relax and enjoy a bit more and go at a slower pace, there’s a chance to perceive some of the magic in the world in between every day moments.
