Good morning world!
I’ve driven home many times in my posts that life is too short. That we must live each day as if it was our last. Well today’s post is focused on living in those rare unbelievable, unimaginable, and amazing moments, in this short life.
So it’s no surprise that I’ve fallen at least a week, or two depending on who you ask, behind on my Mid-WYFE Motivation posts but I promise I have a good reason and here’s why:
On Feb. 6, I released my first book with a book signing event at Sweet Auburn Seafood here in Atlanta. I came into it with no expectations other than getting up there, making sure I didn’t have lipstick on my teeth, trying not to sweat my make-up off, saying my poem with minimal “umms” and not passing out. That’s it. But I’m here to tell you that it gave me so much more.
It was amazing! I couldn’t have asked for a better turnout, a better support team, a better location, or just a better moment. My mind was and is still blown after such a priceless moment. So rather than jumping onto the next project, I decided to live in the moment. I decided to slow down, look at pictures, show gratitude for all those who supported, and thank God for such an outstanding day. For all the ups and downs, the losses and wins, the time spent on trying to get things rights, I felt that at that moment everything went as it should have been — perfect. Sure there were a few hiccups here and there with sound and smaller details but it wasn’t about being flawless, it was about being memorable and it absolutely was.
This week, sit in your moment. Take a day or even a week to take it all in. You deserve to enjoy your blessing. It’s a blessing in itself that we get a chance to have these unique moments in life. Moments that we could never dream of but are lucky enough to experience once in a lifetime. Yes, it’s true. Life IS too short and because of that, we must make sure we take time to live in these amazing moments. Sure, the moment will pass —no matter how much we try to relive it or just bask in its glory — because it has to. But don’t worry. Keep your head up and keeping moving because another amazing, unforeseen moment will appear when you least expect it.
