Moments of Clarity
So many things bring me moments of clarity. A great workout. An extra long hug. An exceptional dance class. Family snuggle time. Being read to by a new reader. These moments occur at least daily, and they make it easy to appreciate not only the things I love about my life and the people I value in it, but they also let me glimpse at times how I want things to be, how I can improve on an already satisfying life. It should be easy to take those moments and hold on to them, and let them carry me through the day, right? But it isn't so easy. Being in the moment is hard to achieve, and it's a fleeting sensation. Too many distractions, too many obligations, too many excuses. Feeling frenetic has become a natural state of being, and it is not a healthy one. This is my challenge.
