Update to the Perfect Moment: August 19 2020
Since a few people have read this in the last week or so, I probably should update it a bit. While everything below holds true, in our current situation (Covid 19/Coronavirus/pandemic–whatever you want to call it) I haven’t gone out as much, haven’t interacted with people as much and it is harder to find Perfect Moments. I know they are still there, but they are nearly as obvious as they were before.
The results of this are that I am not writing these blogs as much. I have days of inspiration, but I also have days where I have nothing to write. I also have days when I want to complain about things.
I am not giving up on my blog. Please have patience. We will get through this.
The Original Finding the Perfect
I began my search for the Perfect Moment in an effort to brighten up my life. While I wouldn’t call my self depressed, I would say that I wasn’t living the life I wanted. It was easy to find the negative in things and dwell on them too much.
I decided that a good way to get out of that “funk” was to find things to be positive about. I already knew (or thought I knew) what was good in my life, so I decided to focus on things outside of that. I decided to find at least one good thing a day to reflect on and be positive about. There had to be at least one good thing each day.
Surprisingly (at that time) I often found more than one. That is why I had to decide which one was the Perfect Moment of the day. In the beginning my need was great enough that I felt compelled to write every single day. Though I don’t feel that compulsion any longer, I will have to admit one very important thing.
It works. It really works.
The search for a perfect moment really isn’t hard. Each day has them, hidden and revealed. Though we may not recognize them when they happen, they are still there. I hope by sharing mine, I can spread some positive in a world that seems to obsess on the negative.
These moments, fleeting and elusive are there to found.
