This is one of my favorite quotes…that “this moment…[is] sparkling like a star in our hand…and melting like a snowflake.”
Any moment that is sparkling like a star in our hand means it is precious. And every moment is… Find the joy, the sparkle, the love, the warmth of the moment…
And then… make sure you know it is precious, for Paula goes on to state that each moment is “melting like a snowflake.” That means it’s gone.
So was your last moment spent in joy or frustration? In gratitude or upset? Did it help resolve or move forward or cause more consternation? Even in the challenges, our moments can still be constructive. How I learn from this, striving to appreciate the “star and melting snow” of each moment myself.
“Begin now. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake.” —Paula Best
