Have you ever tried imagining that perfect moment? And when that perfect moment does happen it doesn't seem to have the magic that you imagined it would have. It is kind of disappointing, eh?
Everything tells us that there is something such as that perfect moment and if you buy their product or if you stay in their hotel or use their spa or fly this airlines or go to this country, you will find that perfect moment that they advertise. It is not only the advertisements. When others tell us of their vacation or their job or their marriage, when we look at their pictures, relate stories of what happened when they grew up, we imagine such perfect moments for ourselves. But we never seem to find it really. Why is that so?!
I think it is because we fail to live in the moment now. We are more interested in seeking moments that others have had. But our lives are filled with such moments. And these moments punctuate the mundane of everyday life. We needn't search for it the airlines and hotels.
Even when such moments happen to us, it may just seems so ordinary. We get disappointed because we haven't learnt to treasure such moments in our everyday life. And there are times when the extraordinary do occur, but we end up not being aware of it as we haven't learnt to treasure the moments.
Another thing is we expect life to be series of such moments without interruption. But these moments are interspersed with the ordinary and the mundane. If you let the ordinary and mundane bore you, you will not find the moments that do happen when you are not looking for it.
Don't know if I make sense. Anyways, these are my thoughts.
