This is one moment. I seem to be saying this often these days. I release the words from my lips as if in prayer and sometimes in desperation. I believe these words but sometimes I wonder if I say it more to convince myself instead of reassure myself that this is truth, that in the big picture, this is but one moment.
This is one moment. I accept that this is true but acceptance and reality don’t always sync like I want them to sync. I can say these words out loud, hoping to invoke peace and tranquility but I am reminding myself that this moment will not last – embrace it or remember it and move on.
This is one moment. Words are powerful. It is said that if you speak evil, evil will come. That must be true for goodness. If I speak these words out loud I trust that this is indeed one moment – good or bad.
This is one moment. These words open up a world of possibilities to explore. This one moment could destroy or this one moment could make me stronger and lift me to new heights. Come what may, it is only one moment in the entire scope of existence and no matter what happens in this moment it will pass and a new one will replace it.
This is one moment. To live in the moment is one thing but to be present takes creativity. There are so many distractions, deliberate and unplanned, that it is difficult to stay in this moment. And, sometimes it is unreasonable but it is important. In one moment, you can plan a future and in the next it could fall to pieces; however that does not mean you can or should because it is just one moment.
