Make Those Moments
We all have a duty to ourselves to create a life with moments.
Moments that make our heart pound through our chest and make our blood rush through our veins.
Moments that make us dig deep into our soul to search for a better understanding and purpose, ensuring that our actions embody what we truly value.
Moments that overwhelm our mind and body so much so that we feel the slightest touch and see every spectrum of color.
We must experience moments that yank us to the past and empower us to dare to envision a boundless future.
Those moments that are so exhilarating, petrifying or severe that we can only actualize and realize the current moment in time. Moments when every second feels as if it’s a century.
We experience moments filled with tears, bliss, apprehension, regret and exultation.
Our lives are filled of moments we wish could transpire again and again, as well as moments we wish we never experienced at all.
Our lives are defined by the moments; moments that we create for one another and those we experience in isolation.
Without moments, we have no mental video library, nothing to reflect on. Our lives in turn become dismal and we become bitter.
In our final hours we will not reflect on the money we acquired, the size of our house, or our job title. Instead, most reflect on those moments.
It is our duty to create those moments, because those moments define us, there is nothing else.
