I am improving the moment, right now, by writing this post with this title.
Actually, that’s one of the main reasons I blog, every day. To improve the moment.
Yesterday, when I returned to my place of employment after the July 4th holiday break, I saw a person I like a lot, at work. We chatted, for a few moments, about our weekends. I asked her how she was doing. She spoke about things that made it difficult, for her, to be back at work.
She said, “It was great having fun and connecting with people, over the weekend.”
I replied, “Yes. Maybe we could try to have fun and connect more with each other, here. That’s why I stopped, when I saw you.”
Then, as a way of ending the conversation (because we both had so much work to do), I added, “Improving the moment.”
I wasn’t sure if she’d know what I meant. But, she immediately replied, “That’s a good one.”
It was a good moment.
Here are some recent, pictorial examples of improving the moment:
I’ve often mentioned that I can have trouble making decisions. So how did I decide which moments to show you, above?
That’s the beauty of it: I could have chosen any.
Thanks to Marsha Linehan (for Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), to people at work (and at play), to all those appearing in my photos, to every moment, and to you — of course! — for sharing this moment, here and now.
