Having a Moment

I found this video on someone else's website, complete with this great quote:

“Our lives a series of defining moments,
strung together by passing time.
Surrender fully to this moment,
because it is not the moment itself that defines us,
but how we choose to live in it.”
                      - Jill Pendley

Which is kind of related to one of my own all time favorite quotes:

"The future in an infinite succession of presents..."
                    - Howard Zinn

It caught my eye because of the title image. For a little while today, I felt just like this lady seems to be feeling.

Fortunately, it was just a "moment" and life proceeded on and carried me with it.

It also reminded me for some reason that the good times in life, which luckily for me are nearly all of them, are made somehow more real, more rich, by the times that are not quite so perfect.

And all of them - good or bad - in the big picture, are just moments.

The video is four minutes long, but a neat one. Enjoy.

  1. Hi Wendy! It is a great video, isn't it? I wholeheartedly agree with you about good times in life being enriched by the not-so-good.
