Treasure Every Moment



With the recent and sudden passing of basketball legend, Kobe

Bryant, his daughter Gianna and the seven other beautiful

souls that died in the helicopter crash, it got me thinking about

how we are living our lives. Just recently, I watched a couple

sitting at a restaurant for over 1 1⁄2 hours without saying one

single word to each other.


Over the past month, I have witnessed a mother talking and

laughing with her cell phone in one hand – and with the other

hand, dragging her crying 3 years old, whose shoelace had got

caught in the door. She was too busy on her phone to notice.

I am so tired of seeing how we as a people are disconnecting

from each other. Our inability to be intentional about looking

into the eyes of the people we are speaking to is discouraging.

I get it, with to-do lists a mile long and constant deadlines, it is

no surprise that most of us feel cut off not only from our

partners and loved ones but also from ourselves. Our lives are

busier, faster and we are moving further away from our

center. You can never stray too from what is really

meaningful before losing connection with yourself and

everybody else. And when you have lost that, neither Comcast

nor Verizon can can bring it back. If the sudden death of

Kobe and others teaches us anything, let it be to listen, pay

attention, make the connection and treasure every moment of

our lives with our family, friends and loved ones.


Until next time, Be A Light
