September 16

Inner Growth Word of the Day: Moment


Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (n.) 1 a. a minute portion or point of time.  2 a. present time.


Moment in a sentence: When the moment is gone there’s no going back, which is why living in the moment is so precious.


Moment in action: Something that takes place in a range of time or that is happening now (like you reading this blog) is a moment and/or in the moment.


Moment and inner growth: Noticing how you live moments in your life and if you are active during the moment both pursue inner growth as they get you to stay aware and appreciate the seconds of life that you are living both from within and from the external. As you do this it becomes a part of you to be present in the moment and also start exploring what this means to you emotionally, how you’re feeling and what may be crossing your mind as you go through the experience.


Moment and inner growth action steps:

  1. In-depth self-exploration questions: What does living in the moment mean to me? How do I appreciate every moment that takes place in my life?  When did I first start thinking about the moment?  How has living and/or being in the moment affected my life?  How has it affected my relationships?  What are my biggest takeaways from being and/or living in the moment?


  1. List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with moment at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. When you see your list what one recent moment comes to mind?  If it’s more than one experience, write about both and focus on what you felt during those moments, as well as what your biggest insights were into who you are and why.


  1. Bring your awareness to your feelings about being and/or living in the moment and as you allow them to flow notice where they start, where they go, if they stall in certain places across your body. Sit in silence just breathing and feeling your body, your emotions, when you’re ready visualize one of the best life moments you’ve experienced so far.
