Many times in life we look for the perfect moment, we delay things because we decide it’s not a good time or maybe we decide we’re too afraid and we need to wait a little for the courage to come, we doubt that we’re even making the right decision.
As I was reading through quotes from books I’ve read over the years, I ran across this beautiful quote from a book I love dearly, “By The River Piedra I Sat Down And Wept” by Paulo Coelho. The quote struck me so much that to this day I remember sitting at my desk and writing it down almost 10 years ago.
“You have to take risks, he said.
We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen.
Every day, God gives us the sun – and also one moment in which we have the ability to change everything that makes us unhappy. Every day, we try to pretend that we haven’t perceived that moment, that it doesn’t exist–that today is the same as yesterday and will be the same as tomorrow.
But if people really pay attention to their everyday lives, they will discover that magic moment.
It may arrive in the instant when we are doing something mundane, like putting our front-door key in the lock; it may lie hidden in the quiet that follows the lunch hour or in the thousand and one things that all seem the same to us.
But that moment exists, a moment when all the power of the stars becomes a part of us and enables us to perform miracles.”
While waiting for that perfect moment, I have wasted chances, chances that at times I was lucky enough to get a second time and at other times I never got again. And there were also times when I saw that perfect moment, I took the leap of faith and the universe rewarded me with the most amazing accomplishments of my life.
Is there a perfect moment you’ve been waiting for in your life? Something you’ve been dying to accomplish, yet your holding back. Let go of the fear, trust your heart, and allow the start to align in your favor and the universe to grant your wish. Allow the miracles to happen in your life every day. And find your perfect moment right now.
