Overlooking The Perfect Moments

Everyday there are perfect moments happening.

They’re right in front of us but we let them pass us by.

What’s a perfect moment you ask? Andy Andrews talks about it in his free eBook The Perfect Moment.

It’s a moment in time that creates happiness and peace. Contentment and joy. It’s the little moments that form warm feelings.

You may think I’m crazy feeling this way. “There’s hardly anything perfect going on in my life” you may say. But I challenge you to look around.

Look at the small joys in your life:

  • A romantic walk with your wife
  • Your child’s beaming smile
  • Finding the closest parking spot
  • Watching the sunset over Lake Michigan

These may not seem like perfect moments when you first think about it. Take another look. I think you’ll see something different.

When you’re walking with your spouse, think of the feeling you get when you hold their hand. There’s magic happening.

Your child giving you that toothy grin. It warms your heart. It’s a moment that only happens once. Never to happen the same way again.

Sometimes finding the closest parking spot can be a relief and brings you happiness.

The perfect moments are the little things in life that happen. They don’t have to be huge events.

Just little reminders that we’re alive and that there is good in the world.

Stop waiting for the perfect moment, take the moment you have and make it perfect!

I experienced this on a recent walk with Pam.

We often take walks around our city. Sometimes walking towards the beach. Sometimes towards the downtown area.

This was during one of the downtown walks.

I realized I’m with my wife, walking through a rundown but beautiful downtown, with a perfect temperature, and the sunlight was just right.

It was a perfect moment.

I could easily have missed it. Overlooked the perfect moment. They’re simple, but they’re out there.

When you’re out and about today, look for these little gems. Take it in and realize that something special is happening.

You’re experiencing your own perfect moment.
