Life presents moments in which you have such clarity…such satisfaction…such happiness.
And, they are…
The cool moments.
Those points in time in which you feel invincible. On top of the world.
You may have achieved something great. Or experienced something amazing. Or witnessed something extraordinary.
Regardless of what event led you to that wonderful moment – it happened. And that’s what’s important. And you should cherish it. Because, as we all know, life is full of ups and downs; and we often have an easier time dwelling in those down moments than we do in our up moments.
When we were kids, life was full of wonder and excitement. Everything was new. Everything was an adventure. Then, life kicked in, along with a lot of responsibilities. But that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy cool moments like we had when we were kids.
Remember how awesome it was to walk into the living room and see presents under the Christmas Tree? Or that pride your felt after hitting a home run or scoring a basket? Or that feeling you had on the last day of school each year? (well… I definitely loved that day!)
I recently had a really cool moment in my life. A few weeks ago, I was hired to write the script for a computer animated cartoon. And, on Saturday, I saw – for the first time – my imagination brought to life. I was sent a brief clip of the animated cartoon, and I got to watch my own imagination. Now…that was cool.
This time of year, there are a lot of opportunities for cool moments. So, let’s all enjoy the Holidays. Enjoy each other. And, savor the cool moments in life.
