Every moment is unique, it can never be repeated. Yet we forget this and much of our lives fly past without us even noticing. Taking the time to enjoy each unique moment as it unfolds deepens our connection, not just with our own unique life, but with the world around us. The world is in a constant state of change, and in each moment we can experience the weaving together of many threads which will never be repeated. Whenever I think about this it inspires me to try to notice just a little more of the miraculous world around me.
It’s easy to spend too much time in auto pilot, busy rushing from one task to the next, and to miss all the amazing sights and sounds which are just under our noses. Slowing down enough to savour the life we are actually living can have a powerful effect. Suddenly you might find that you’re a little happier, and a little more relaxed. You might even begin to notice that you already have everything you need to be happy, and instead of spending your life focused on the next task, you can begin to enjoy where you are right now.
I took these photos with a very fast shutter speed in sports mode on the new camera so that I could capture the action. Even taking 5 shots a second I still missed lots of unique moments in time, and it got me thinking about how much happens which I never even see, although its right in front of me.
