Why Wait? You Can Make Your Perfect Moment Now

July 10, 2015

MAKE THE MOMENT PERFECTSometimes I read some inspirational quotes which make me sit back and think.  I recently found one about waiting for the perfect moment.  Is there such a thing?

We are always waiting; waiting to finish school, waiting to pay off our mortgage, waiting to pay off our car,waiting to save more money, waiting until this, waiting until that.

We live our lives in the future instead of enjoying the present and miss many ‘perfect’ moments along the way.  Suddenly twenty years has passed and we look back with regret.

Sometimes our perception of Perfection is unrealistic, we keep striving for something that is unattainable whilst not recognizing the perfect moments that do exist in our life.  We set the bar too high for perfection and are disappointed when we believe we haven’t achieved it.

Sometimes it is the simple things that make the moment perfect.  We need to appreciate our life and what we have TODAY not tomorrow.  Sure, I’m a great believer in setting goals however we also need to STOP and just enjoy the NOW.

Try this exercise.

What are you doing right at this moment?

Can you find something that will make it perfect?

  • Stop a moment, think of your partner, your children and grandchildren and how you feel about them.  This should make you smile and appreciate what you have.  Not everyone has this.
  • Walk outside and see the beauty of nature.
  • Read a book
  • Listen to music
  • Dance
  • Laugh
  • Go for a Walk/Run
  • Have a bubble bath
  • Enjoy a good meal
  • Walking along the beach

Don’t wait for someone to make things perfect for You.  Find your ‘Perfect’ and make the Moment Perfect for You.

    I’m with you here, all the way! I think as we get older and reflect on the fact that time is limited begin to appreciate the present moments. For me, to answer your question, my perfect moment is whatever is right in front of me now! Like reading your post, reflecting on it and typing you this comment. Sounds like I SHOULD day that, but I just came back from my walk, ate my oatmeal and reading some blogs, a perfect Saturday morning if say so myself. Love this post!

    Thank you Sue! I needed to hear this today. There is so much disappointment when you spend your life waiting for ‘this one thing’ to happen and it never does. Your post is a good reminder to enjoy today for what it is. A blessing.

      Yes, although I’m guilty of sometimes not ‘practicing what I preach’ so by writing the article it brings me back on track. I’m glad that my post helped you today. Have a lovely day and make a perfect moment 🙂

    Beautiful thought Sue and so true. I had cancer about 11 years ago and have tried to live this quote since then- but it’s nice to have such a lovely reminder!

    A wise and thoughtful post. I try to be present in any given moment, but it’s hard sometimes when life gets busy! What helps me is a run, nature, kayaking, or being in nature.

      Thank you for your kind words Nicole. running helps me. I live near the Brisbane River which is the main river in our city. I love running by the river, through the city gardens and back. It really clears my head. I usually run when I’m feeling stressed and you are right it is hard to live in the moment but at least if we try most of the time that’s got to be good for us? Thanks for commenting and have a lovely weekend.

    You are so right Sue, I was over waiting a while ago and decided for things to change I had to pull my finger out. Thanks for sharing on #wednesdayswisdom.

    Beautifully said – I’m with you and learning to enjoy and appreciate the right here and now. The “in this moment” goodness – and making the very most of what we have right now – I call it water into wine – the theme of my blog – loving your advice and your inspiration. Thanks so much !!

      Oh thank you Tracey for the lovely words. I love the theme of your blog so am popping over to subscribe. We are making a perfect moment or two this week by running away for some quality time at the Coast. Thanks for the comment and have a lovely day.

    Hi Sue,
    How lovely to find your beautiful and inspirational blog. I try to grab every moment but sometimes we get so caught up in the chaos of the day we forget to catch our breath and just ponder. Thanks so much for the reminder. Love this post and I’ll look forward to exploring your blog 🙂
    Have a great weekend!
