“Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery that it is. In the boredom and pain of it no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.” Frederick Buechner
all moments are key moments. when i am really in tune to this belief, i feel more honest in my life and more awake. i do believe we are given moments – they are small gifts of potential. sometimes i pay attention, sometimes i fail. and let’s be honest. sometimes all the paying attention and being mindful of every moment can get a bit exhausting. but i’ve also felt when it’s easy – those days when i go about my day with a sense of serenity. when nothing really seems to bother or annoy me. when i am hopeful. and when i’m not worried about the questions or when the answers will arrive. i’m just in the moment, and loving it.
i’m learning to let go of some expectations – to release calculated anticipation. instead, i just want to arrive at life’s moments with an openness of heart.
sometimes, life feels like a tangled mess. sometimes it seems like one of those circular conversations that never really goes anywhere but you are desperately trying to solve the maze of it. and sometimes, it’s just easy. for me, lately, it’s been pretty easy. i love that.
