Live in the Moment
Don’t we all wish that we had covered topics in the past with the people who mean the most to us? When it becomes too late, or the friendship dwindles to a point that to recover that closeness seems like too much work. As in my prior posting I must learn to ‘live it’.. As also the title states, we are all so used to that phrase but how many of us try to concentrate on the use of it in our lives?
When the ‘moment is gone’ we certainly cannot get it back. I love the idea of something I used in my career a lot, where it is to become a better ‘listener’ ~ in every moment.. Which, along with ‘taking a breath’ to fully consider ‘the moment’ you see it may be that we are missing the interpretation of that moment from the other person’s point of view.
Too many times we find out much later that it is the bigger ‘picture’ surrounding ‘a moment’, that we had missed.
