It's that time of year again, when Jews spend hours in temple working on a spiritual tune-up for the soul. It's the perfect time for self reflection. Once concept that I've been rolling around in my head is that of the importance of cherishing special moments as they come. That is, rather than trying to work-work-work to make things perfect, and be disappointed when the stars never align, assume that things never will be perfect. Instead, when those precious moments come, grab them, enjoy them, and know that they will pass.
What can I say, I've got a lot of time to think.
Anyway, along comes a Moth Podcast which explains all this far better than I can. So here it is: Perfect Moments by Brian Finkelstein. You can listen to it on the web by clicking here. It's riveting and definitely worth your time.
So enjoy those moments, they come and go in a flash.
