Ah! Its 8:00 AM on a Saturday morning. I turned over and extend my body. As I stretch, sounds of pleasure are released from my mouth as my hands and arms move into the touchdown position. I'm well rested from a great night's sleep. This is the start of a great day. I'm light years ahead of my honey do list and my mind is free and clear from anything that would pertain to work. It's a very cold and brisk morning. I'm snuggled under my quilt as I finish up my morning devotions. I reach over and grab my computer that is strategically located on my nightstand. Now it's time to check my emails. Amongst the assortment of emails in my inbox l click on to a BLArticle (blog + article, if you never experienced one, you need to check them out http://jolles.com/blarticle/ - I look forward to them!)
Ok, I'm snuggled in, computer screen up and I begin to read the BLArticle. Only now I have one major problem. I took off my glasses and sat them on my night stand. No problem, I reach back over to the nightstand to get my glasses then I settle back in and focus on the screen. However, this time I noticed immediately that my glasses are smudged from when I grabbed them off the nightstand. "Are you serious?" By this time I'm getting aggravated and frustrated and ready to turn over and call it quits.
So my choices are simple: 1) Un- snuggle, clean off my glasses and continue to read. Or 2) Do nothing and deal with the smudged glasses and read.
I choose neither. I simply close my eyes and began to meditate. I instantly became aware of self and began to relax and appreciated the life I have. I began to realize that life is not all about doing doing doing. I was able to enjoy the moment.
No matter where I find myself at any particular time, it is my choice to stop time and enjoy the moment. When’s the last time you've stopped TIME to enjoyed the moment?
