Happy Friday Everyone! Another week has flown by; in fact, the summer solstice has already come and gone! Our challenge is to remember that life is a series of moments and if we are not present, we will miss them. Let’s start today leaving time for moments of wonder!
Following is a quote that is a reminder to see the beauty in the “Here and Now”!!
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” (Maya Angelou)
Most of us have heard this popular quote by Maya Angelou, but often we do not practice it in our daily lives. We live in a busy world of constant distractions. How many of us wake up in the morning, open our eyes, feet hit the ground and we are off and running….minutes, hours, the entire day goes by and we miss the wonder that is scattered about everywhere? We don’t take the time to notice the little moments that take our breath away each day.
We can only live one moment at a time, so we should do our best to truly experience every miraculous moment we are given. “The only way to live is to accept each minute as an unrepeatable miracle; which is exactly what is: a miracle and unrepeatable.” (Storm Jameson)
Every day is a new beginning; so practice slowing down and pausing. Just breathe. Begin to pay attention to each moment, looking for the extraordinary in the ordinary. Every day has its gifts; something special for you to uncover. See with fresh eyes and experience all of the moments that will take your breath away. Say to yourself, “discover”. Think to yourself, “this life is pretty amazing, isn’t it?”
I hope you have a great day and weekend uncovering the beauty all around you!
