Honey, Just Seize It!

 

The online dictionary defines a moment as "a particular time, period of success, excellence, fame, etc." How many times do we miss a moment?  Easy to do given the quick pace of our lives, events, perhaps even relationships.  I can't help but wonder how our lives would be enhanced by catching more of these moments?

 

This morning, when looking out the window (sans coffee I might add), I saw two cardinals in the backyard. Simplistic and absolutely stunning!  My first thought, I should get my phone and snap a picture.  It was then that I determined by running to get my phone, I had the potential to actually miss this opportunity. (Did I mention this higher thinking occurred without coffee??)  Therefore, I opted to embrace the silence and just take it in without documenting the moment.  Don't get me wrong, I love taking a picture and sharing via social media as much as the next person.  I also get the irony in the fact that this post will be shared by me via social media.  :)  However, there was a true feeling of tranquility in just enjoying this experience.

 

So, this week seize a moment:

 

*Notice nature

*Look at each person you encounter this week

*Listen fully before speaking

*Try something new

*Embrace the laughter and innocence of a child

*Apply for the dream job

*Plant the garden

*Take the trip

*Insert your moment here...

 

There is no right or wrong when it comes to seizing a moment. That's up to you--YOU decide your time, period of success, excellence, fame etc.  Go on, seize it!
