These fleeting moments seem to disappear so quickly, and I feel myself wanting them to stay with me, to keep telling me that everything is going to be OK… And, I feel myself thinking over and over about the meaning of life and trying to figure it out, and desperately trying to understand it. I think about God. And I think to myself in these moments, "All that the universe – (and all that any of us) are made up of are particles of magical/divine dust,” and, “We all are here for a blink of an eye, and then we are gone.” So fast - and too ridiculously quickly.
It’s not a sad feeling that I experience. In fact, it’s quite the opposite! It is an overpowering desire to LIVE! It is in these moments that everything about life is easily able to be seen as a complete miracle. I think about the gifts that I have been given; from all of my friends and family who are a part of my life, to being able to have the gift of seeing my dreams coming true in front of my eyes.
Friends, we must seize the day; every single day. Honestly, I wish that there was a way to keep the “Miracle Hour” going, keep the peace going, and never get caught up in stressful situations that simply don’t matter in the bigger picture of life. Let’s try to never let a moment go by without trying to remind ourselves how small we are; yet how powerful we are, and how we can all impact the world in a positive way, during the short time that we are here on Earth. Through relentless faith and strength, I believe that we all have the power within us to create the kind of person that we want to be, and create the kind of life that we hope to live. If you want to achieve something, you CAN, and you WILL.
