in the moment

“Life is made up of moments. Small pieces of glittering mica in a long stretch of grey cement.

It would be wonderful if they came to us unsummoned, but particularly in lives as busy as the ones most of us lead now, that won’t happen.

We have to teach ourselves how to make room for them, to love them, and to live, really live.” 

Anna Quindlen “A Short Guide to  a Happy Life”

joyful moment

Whenever we create space for ourselves and pause in order to simply be, we find the pieces that make life meaningful.
