A single moment

I've been thinking about this blog theme, and I'm coming up blank. Which is not to say I've done everything right, but more that I don't have something gnawing at me to change. I am greatly flawed and I've made mistakes. That is life.

If I could change something, I'd change the way I think about things, the way I react to things and the way I bottle things up.

If I could go back to a single moment to relive, there are too many great ones to narrow it down to just one - I've had a life time of fabulous moments, both shared and alone. Visited a million places I'd return to in a flash, just to see again. Laughed a thousand laughs, and smiled a trillion smiles, all worthy of revisiting for the joy experienced.

I have too many precious memories that I hold on to dearly, too many to say one is more worthy than another.

So I'm opting out of this prompt, though I will read with great interest what others say. I've enjoyed the exercise of trawling through my memories, only to decide that the task is too difficult, that the choice is too great to single out merely one. And that fills me with a great contentment.

This is not the quote I was after to finish with, that still eludes me, but it will do:

“Life is not made up of minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years, but of moments. You must experience each one before you can appreciate it.”
Sarah Ban Breathnach

  9. I can't say that there is one single moment either... oh actually yes maybe, it involves me not ignoring someone I had just broken up with because he died 2 weeks later with so much left unsaid....

  10. It's great that you are so content with your life that you couldn't possibly narrow it down to one awesome moment! I love the quote too.

  11. There are so many moments I would give to go back to and slap myself. I've learned it doesn't help to spend too long there. So many fab moments too. This reminds me I should make a list of those x

  13. There are so many good and not so good moments in our live and I think all are valuable, they shape who your grow to become. Yes there are experiences I would love to repeat because I loved them so much but there are, I am sure, many more great experiences to come.
