The other morning I popped outside for a walk, went 20 paces to the top of my road and promptly sprinted back home. Why? I legged it back for the camera, to enjoy this:
Those moments were brief, but ooooh so brilliant! It was totally, stunningly beautiful – the light was mesmerising, the crisp air so packed with excitement. Being aware that the conditions were temporary, bound to change, was actually part of what made the experience so magic. My focus was 100% on enjoying them to the full. And you can guess what I remember most vividly from that day!
Tip #12 Enjoy the moments
Life balance is naturally fluid, made of moments in balance, and moments adjusting or recovering your balance. Grabbing hold of these moments does not make for better balance, it just stops the flow and frankly, is rather hard work.
Sometimes the magic moments are there, but we don’t pause to enjoy them in full. Simply pausing to savour them can change the balance of our day.
You create your life balance, moment by moment. So, wherever you’re at right now, enjoy those moments!
