To Freeze a Moment

What a beautiful night! I’m sitting out in the yard, under the full moon, just enjoying the quietness of the night.

Have you ever wondered what you might do if you could freeze a moment? I think about Mitch Albom’s book, The Timekeeper, and how he could move in between moments and took a century to learn everything within a moments passing to us.

What moment would you freeze? Would you even want to freeze it? Would you rather just live in it? And what would you do after you froze it?

I have no idea what I would do with a moment. I don’t know if I would want to freeze it, or seize it. I don’t know if I would just sit still for a minute or two, letting the feelings and thoughts that come with that moment sink in or sit for hours as I reflect upon the thoughts and feelings and let it stew.

And isn’t time just a bunch of little moments rolled into one giant ball of time? You know, make-every-minute-count sorta thing?

Whenever I have time to reflect it seems my thoughts always lead back to time and what am I doing to make the most of it. I am grateful for the 24-hours I am given each day. I don’t know if I’ve been making every minute count, but I do know that I don’t regret any moment. I’m not saying I’m living a blissful life. I read a quote on the famous Facebook the other day. It said “There are no regrets, just lessons learned.” I love this philosophy and have adopted that frame of mind.

So wether I freeze the moment or dive into it, feet first, I know that moments are precious somethings and I know both reflection and action can truly make every moment count.
