TRIBE Tips Tuesday - June 11 - Celebrate all the moments in your life

Uncategorized Jun 11, 2019

June weekends are full of some of life's biggest moments - graduations and weddings.  It's easy to get caught up in the excitement and carried along with the flow of events.  This is just when it's important to stop, take a deep breath, look around and cherish the small moments happening within this larger context.

I find the most difficult thing in a weekend of rushing from one thing to the next, is to focus on what is happening right in front of me.  When I'm the host, that becomes even more challenging!  So this weekend, as my daughter's wedding was in full swing, I tried to find those moments to just sit still and absorb the energy around me.  To look, not at the big picture, but to seek out what one specific person was doing.  To take a mental snapshot of how the different ages were interacting.  And to have conversations with those that had travelled the furthest and knew the fewest people there.

No matter how many times I told myself - be in the moment.  I found myself working to make sure the evening didn't slide by without accomplishing a set of activities I felt were necessary.  It was hard to let time organically allow the night to unfold.

The weekend was as beautiful, poignant, exhausting, and joyful as I could possibly have hoped.  But it is the small moments that will resonate the longest.  To ensure that what I remember is not that the caterer forgot the appetizers or the rain prevented the large group photos we are hoping to capture, I took time to journal the memories I did want to have.

This small practice is new to me.  But knowing that it is done gives me immense pleasure.

What are the ways you choose to celebrate the moments of your life?
