Standing in a Moment
Sometimes I want time to stand still. I want to live in the realization of new discoveries, relish in new ideas, and dance with all ah-ha moments that keep reminding me that I live in a fluidic universe.
Isn’t it what we all really want? To recapture the first time we felt our hearts swell with love and our minds expanding with the freedom of thought? Like the first time you read a book that changed your life or heard a song that made you sob. We all want to be moved. We want to feel our hearts beat fast again and our skin ripples with chills as we experience the exhilaration of a life changing moment.
Change is a calculated and deliberate function in our DNA. We are designed to experience change every moment of everyday. Twenty-four-seven, we are going through changes—evolving and expanding constantly. If we didn’t experience change we would shrivel up and cease to exist.
But sometimes change can be scary or painful. Things come at us at rates we aren’t ready to process. Change sweeps us off our feet and before we know it we are landing flat on our backs and looking around to find out what happened. Strange enough, when we look back at it years later, it doesn’t seem as big as we made it out to be when we were in the throes of the moment.
What if we had the consciousness to change those life altering moments into opportunities to live in the moment? Like the first time you read that book or cried at that song? What if, for just that split second before we decided this “life altering” moment was going to be terrible, we consciously decided to find the spark of greatness hidden within? That moment when time stood still and the universe opened up and showed us something bigger than ourselves and it was conspiring to give it to us. Maybe we found how to love ourselves again, and truly love other people. What if we were able to understand we have a higher purpose?
What is change, but a moment when we are required to stretch outside that box we managed to fit so comfortably into.
Change is merely an opportunity to grow and growth is the moment we realize change is inevitable.
It is time to grow. Right now is the time to stand in the bright light of discovery, expand our reach, and drink up the change that inevitably is happening.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my ramblings. Happy holidays to you and yours!
