The power of a moment

by WickedApparition

That’s all it takes… a moment. Everything in our lives is affected by every decision we choose to make in every present moment.


Earlier today my Mother chose, in a moment of despair, to go to her closet and get her handgun.


Earlier today I chose, in a moment of awareness, to go upstairs in response to the out of the ordinary noise I heard.


My life could have changed in a moment, and hers could have ended, had I not walked upstairs just as she was about to lock her bedroom door.


I just wanted to remind everybody of how important a single moment in time can be. Each and every person, all too often, takes a moment for granted. That applies to the good moments and the bad moments. But we all must remember that, good or bad, our decisions in a moment literally change everything.


That’s why I’m using my current moment to write this in hopes that everybody reading this will use their next moments for betterment instead of possibly using them to live in the sadness of moments that have already passed, & that cannot be changed, which may lead to a decision that cannot be undone.


Hopefully I didn’t waste my moment 🙂

Reading through Stories of Hope and this really resonated with me. For the last several days now, I’ve been living in sadness and getting stuck in the past. Thanks for the reminder to use the moments I do have for betterment. Will I do it? Probably not. But I need to fight the negativity… more and more each day.
