Memorable Moments

Dear Diary,

                    I have realized one thing, it's often the simplest question, that leaves people tongue-tied and. is the hardest to answer. I faced a simmilar situation recently, having come across the said question, that made me wonder in my French book.
It went :  Quel est pour vous le meilleur moment de la journée ?

                  For those, who find french equivalent to Greek or Latin, the translation is simple, it means: Which is the best moment, of the day for you?

                  This, made me rack my grey cells, and in a pensive mood think about the answer. If we ever observe carefully, we will realize, that each day of life is filled with beautiful moments. Moments, that pass away unappreciated, because we are too busy with materialistic pleasures, and rarely spare a glance at the world around us.

                    Moments are not just  the big ones, but the small ones too. Nothing like a good laugh shared, with a bunch of old friends. Long walks on the beach, barefoot under the starry sky.Reliving old memories, in a get together. Recieving a  hand written letter, from someone you are very close to, or love dearly. Reading the last few pages of a book, waiting anxiously for the end. Feeling the early morning dew, on the grass Watching kids play, and reminiscing your time as a kid. Watching the sunset ,knowing there can  never be a more beautiful end to a long, tiring day. When someone tells you, something good about you, a quality they admire about you or, even how you have touched their life in your small way.Watching old snaps, and remembering the great time you had.

                     The funny thing about these moments, is that in their time, we were just having fun,
and now, they are memories of times that were ,and times that will never return.

                      So starting today, sieze every opportunity you get. Go forth, find your special moment,
 live it, cherish it, enjoy it before it fades away into nothingness.

Signing off with a favourite phrase,Think about it:

"Life is not a dress rehersal, it's the main event."

  2. A wonderful conclusion to this post, and what you say here is very true. Years later, you will remember and treasure far more of the little precious moments than of the big momentous occasions that took place. Everyday can be a celebration of life - I challenge people all the time to "make good memories"! :-)
