The thing I love most about moments is that moments are
manageable. I can manage a moment. Days, weeks, months, and
years seem like eternities sometimes. If I tell myself I’m not going
to eat any chocolate for a month, I begin to obsess over it. But
if, when the cravings for chocolate begin to speak to me, I tell myself,
Not right now, I can handle that. In this way moments play a
powerful role in teaching us how to make and celebrate progress.
The other wonderful thing about moments is that they provide
glimpses of the-best-version-of-ourselves. There are moments
in each day that I can look back on and honestly say, “For that moment
I was perfectly myself.” Not many, but some. In those moments I know I could not have handled myself any better. The more I acknowledge and celebrate those moments, and the more I seek to understand what allowed me to thrive in those moments, the more I find myself repeating them. Matthew Kelly
