Day 1253: How to improve the moment

How to improve the moment?

  1. Access your wisdom, from past experience, about how to improve the moment.
  2. Be as present as possible in the moment.
  3. Let go of fear and worry about future moments.
  4. Take a deep, cleansing breath.
  5. Let in the love that’s around you.
  6. Share your joy in the moment.





Music also improves the moment for me. Here’s some improve-the-moment audio I recorded yesterday at my son’s graduation from high school — Β the Belmont High School a capella singers performing Β Billy Joel‘s “And So It Goes.”


How do you improve the moment?

Thanks to all who helped me improve the moments in this blog post and to you — of course! — for sharing them with me.

  1. Congratulations Ann to both you and Aaron! Graduations always make me cry- and the acapella singers sent me right there. The hope that lies ahead, the beginning of new path… so much emotion. A great moment. I LOVE the Dr Seuss sentiment on that cap πŸ™‚ Have a great day

    • Those singers sent me there yesterday and keep sending me there, Lisa! Thanks for improving another moment for me with your lovely comment.

  2. Congratulations to Aaron!
    (Beach balls??)

    • Several people brought beach balls to the graduation yesterday to improve the moment. Thanks for improving lots of moments for me, Maureen!

  3. Congratulations! So lovely to see young people being applauded for their achievements.

  4. Congratulation to Aaron for graduating high school and going on to college in Scotland! And congrats to you, Ann, for being the kind of mom a guy needs to be able make important decisions and do great things. Keep us posted! Hugs, Sunny πŸ‘πŸ˜»πŸ’«

  5. Beach balls are a good way of improving the moment. As are balloons. Sometimes, though, a well-placed paraphrase of Dr. Seuss can do it.
    I would even say there are as many ways of improving the moment as there are moments, and reflecting on the past, looking at how someone we love has changed, is a great tool to carry forward. There are still many moments to come.

  6. Congratulations to Aaron! Congratulations to all!

  7. As soon as I read the little paper I was hoping there would be a beach ball picture. I laughed.


  8. with something special
    to be proud of

  9. Improve the moment by supporting indie authors. With millions to choose from there’s gotta be something you’ll enjoy and we all need the validation.

  10. Awesome!!

  11. Congratulations Aaron! That is a great moments for both of you.

  12. I don’t think the graduation moment could have been improved πŸ™‚
