Have you ever felt like you were in limbo? Like maybe somewhere along the way you missed the train to your perfect life? Everyone else around you seems to have it together. All of your friends are married or engaged and living their dreams and owning houses and having kids and doing awesome. And then, there you are. Just going about your day. Living life, well, kind of. You go to work and serve at church and you hang out with friends but for some reason something's missing.
I recently read this excerpt from Shauna Niequist's book "Cold Tangerines" and I could not get over how much it resonated with me. Does she know me? Has she been reading my mind? I wanted to share this with you, in case you ever feel like you're just waiting. Maybe you feel like you missed the memo on how to get your dream life. Well, I have some exciting news - you didn't!
Now, some of you may have read that and thought; "I've never felt that way," and I salute you! However, if you're anything like me, that just hit you square between the eyes. She nailed it on the head. I have! I've always been waiting for my big moment. That moment that will define my life and everything that ever was and that will ever be. But like she said, there is no specific BIG moment. Our lives, every day, every minute, every second - those are the "Big" moments. They are what shape us and propel us into our future. So what do you say? You ready to live every moment to the fullest?!
I want to encourage you to start viewing life as a big moment. Look at your day and say "I am going to face this day with a big-moment mentality." Even if you're just going grocery shopping or chasing after a toddler. Those ARE the moments that make up your life.
Here's to you and living your Big moment!
