Beauty of the Moment

sunrise1.1Upon waking this morning, I noticed the beautiful sunrise pictured above. I ran out and took some quick shots of it. None of them came out as I wanted them to, so I planned to take a couple more after my son’s bus left for school.

The thing about sunrises though, is that after a moment everything changes. From minute to minute, the sunrise takes on a different look. As I waited for his bus to leave, I kept watching the sunrise as it changed. This is what it turned into…

sunrise 3.1As I was watching it change ever so slowly, it reminded me of life. There are beautiful moments happening all around us, but they only last for a short time before they’re gone. If we sleep through life, these moments will pass us by, as if they were never there to begin with.

How many beautiful moments do we miss because of our worries, concerns and hectic schedules? Many times we are blinded by those things. They overwhelm us and limit our vision. But, we don’t have to let them. All we must do, is focus on what’s truly important. Then, we will see clearly.

There is a whole world out there beyond our own. Let us not sleep through life. Let’s awaken ourselves and cherish the beauty of the moment.

    So very true. When we take the time to look for the beauty in each day, we become more alive and life becomes more joyful!

    Lovely sunrise! Looking for that one beautiful moment is what keeps me going. My Christmas challenge is going along fine. My son asked what we were doing for Christmas. I shrugged and said I don’t know. I seriously don’t know. We will probably eat a lot of good, but not good for us, food, followed by some board games. That’s good enough.

      Thank you! It sure was beautiful and I’m so glad I had the chance to see it. I think your Christmas plans are good enough too. Who ever said that Christmas has to be “over the top” in order to be great? Simple is better and it keeps the focus where it should be.

    Both pictures are beautiful. I agree with your analysis although how, in the world, do we decide what is most important?


    • mewhoami says:

      Thank you, Glynis. I would say the most important things are the ones that can with us when we die, the people we make an impact on and those we’ve built memories with. Also, the things that won’t matter in 5 years from now, are probably not all that important.
