We don’t always recognize the BIG moments when they occur – often they look like all the normal ones that bookend either side.
Which I guess is another reason to pay attention to what’s going on here, now, right now. Because someday you might want to look back and remember this very moment.
This very moment that you’re living through might be the reason a group of strangers become friends and hang out. Or the reason you apply for that new job. Or the inspiration for a new song you write. Or the moment you find the courage to smile back at him.
And if you’re so focused on the past, you’re not gonna remember this moment.
And if you’re too focused on the mystical future, you’re not gonna remember the details of this moment.
So pay attention. Don’t wish yourself elsewhere. Don’t try to just live through it; don’t agree to just survive it.
(Yes, I realize this is just an extension of last week. Not sure what God’s trying to tell me. Maybe to stop complaining and to just enjoy the journey. )
