Kitty and I and the boys spent the last eight days holidaying in Southern California. The trip was great but tough and not that relaxing, traveling to somewhere ~12,000km away with three boys under six doesn’t exactly entail lying in the sun reading a book.
But I’ve found that even when things are tough, suddenly I can find a moment when it’s perfect, and on this trip it was driving over the mountains and into the desert of the Coachella Valley.
It was the first time I had ever seen a landscape like this in my life, and finding a outlook on the road where we could stop and the boys could run around whilst Kitty and I took in the surroundings, as lo-fidelity as it sounds, was definitely the highlight of my trip.
Which made me think, why shouldn’t I view everything in life like this?
Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
“Look at everything always as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time: Thus is your time on earth filled with glory.”
