Today I unexpectedly received the following award from Moment Matters:
Awarding the people who live in the moment,
The noble who write and capture the best in life,
The bold who reminded us what really mattered –
Savoring the experience of quality time.
I’m just going to take this moment to be un-sarcastically mushy
This is a pretty humbling mention.
I feel like most of us like the idea of living in the moment and try to attain this fabulous state of being but do find it hard (at least I do). Living in the moment is something I try to do with this blog and finding the Awesome in daily life makes me get up in the morning wondering what small, exciting or extraordinary event might happen today.
I’ve pasted the rules below as instructed
Winners re-post this completely with their acceptance speech. This could be written or video recorded.
Winners have the privilege of awarding the next award! The re-post should include a NEW set of people/blogs worthy of the award; and winners notify them the great news.
I will address said rules with the following bullet points:
- There will be no video (let’s not get carried away here)
- Acceptance speech: Thank you to my mom, who told me I could do anything. To my dad, who still finds joy in the little things (like the Bachelor franchise). To my lil bro, who tells me I’m his best friend everyday (until I don’t do what he wants) and to my grandma, who always felt fulfilled no matter how much or how little she had.
- The winner that I’ve chosen ironically made me think about some particular moments in time today: http://tworedtornados.wordpress.com/. This morning I woke up, logged onto WordPress and came upon this Awesome post called “No More Lies,” in which the writer states:
“We owe it to the young versions of ourselves to fulfill their dreams — those dreams we used to cherish.”
This thought has crossed my mind once or twice before. When I look at photos of myself when I was really young and I think… this kid has no idea what’s coming, but she’s… pretty thrilled.
Once upon a time I was this girl. Having my first princess photo shoot (every girl needs one).
I’m going to keep trying to make her proud.
