Often we find ourselves in places that we didn't expect to be or with people we might prefer not to be with and then we call this a waste of time. However, no time is a waste of time if we remain 'awake' and aware of the possible opportunities. Someone may have a particular message for you which, if you are listening, could have profound repercussions on your life. Often these are what may seem to be chance remarks overheard, or they may be direct intentional comments made to you that would not otherwise have occured had you been where you were 'supposed' to have been. Places also have hidden treasures, seen only because you were diverted from your original route but remained inquisitive rather than annoyed.
Gifts are available in every place and every circumstance. One's attitude is what allows them to be available to us. Miracles are usually fairly ordinary events. It is the ability to see, hear and appreciate them that gives them that extra special quality.
So don't go around with your head in a proverbial paper bag. Remain in a state of child-like wonder, particularly if you find your self in a situation that at first appears to be a waste of time!
