This week, McKay talks about miracles, opening up the episode with the story of pilot and pioneer, Amelia Earhart, and the unbelievable tale that is the rescue of McKenzie Morgan. He argues that both stories are miracles in their own right, and these miracles can happen to us so long as we open our minds and hearts to them. McKay says it’s all about realizing your worth. Too many people believe themselves unworthy of serendipitous positivity when that couldn’t be further from the truth. We all deserve miracles - sometimes we just need to open our eyes to them.
McKay goes on to discuss the importance of self forgiveness and overcoming past mistakes. It’s easy to feel that your past has seemingly predetermined your future. If you open your eyes, however, you might find that miracles are all around us, especially in the people we meet everyday. McKay draws this episode to a close by celebrating the life of Indy Ju who, before tragically passing away from leukemia at a young age, inspired millions to believe in miracles again.

“We must have been in the mountains that day for a reason.”
“When you are looking for a miracle, maybe you are more open to the advice of others, maybe you take more chances, maybe your heart is inclined to have faith in someone or something.”
“I believe that these small miracles happen in our lives all the time. Moments of clarity that we don’t always arrive at on our own. The point is, sometimes you need to be looking for a miracle. Maybe take a chance or two.”
“You deserve love, forgiveness, strength and happiness. You may not feel like you deserve it, but you do. You are of immense worth and here on this earth to find peace and rise from the ashes.”
“The millions of people who were inspired by and connected to this little girl with down syndrome has been nothing short of miraculous. Miraculous to those who needed to look beyond their own circumstances, to grandfathers who need redemption, to neighbors who need to care about each other, to people who lack faith who need to look. Miracles happened because of Indy Lu, and miracles can happen because of you.”
“This world is filled with so much good. There is so much to be grateful for. So, as we end today, remember McKenzie. Be willing to be in the right place at the right time.”
