Did you know that you can do magic?
Yes, each and every one of us on this planet can perform magic and, best of all, we can perform it as much as we like every single day of the year.
Take me for example. While searching the chocolate aisle in the supermarket on Monday, I saw an elderly lady trying to reach up for one of the largest Easter Eggs in the store. She couldn’t quite reach it and despite a shop assistant and several other customers being nearby, there was no attempt to help her.
All of a sudden the song “You Can Do Magic” by Limmie & Family Cookin’, a hit from the 1970s, came into my mind and I walked over and reached the Easter Egg off the shelf and handed it to the elderly lady. However, I didn’t only do that but I also smiled, said “hello” to her and we had a brief conversation before she carried on with her shopping. I asked her if there was anything she was looking for that I could help her with, but this was the last item she had come into the store to buy.
I then made my purchases and made my way in the car to visit an aunt and uncle, both in their late 80s. As always, they were delighted to see me and even though they told me there was no need to have bought them the chocolate Easter Eggs I’d given them, I could see they were not only delighted with the chocolate but also that I had stayed with them for a few hours while we chatted over cups of tea and a never ending supply of biscuits.
“You’ve made our day by calling in” were the words of my Aunt, as I left their house.
Getting back to my car I put the radio on and was amazed that Limmie & Family Cookin’ were singing their song. ‘You Can Do Magic’ played for just over three minutes while I realised I’d just performed another piece of magic.
“Go out and perform at least one piece of magic every day.”
