Magic Moments = Opportunities

Magic Moments is such a powerful concept in framing the ways we talk to ourselves. I recall when my first child proudly proclaimed, “I am very good at this, amn’t I?”   His words and confidence in himself delighted me.   Our family began to use the expression, “… amn’t I?”  Later as he ‘entered’ the expanded world of grade school and encountered peers and teachers who would curb his enthusiasm for life and himself, it seemed a deep doubt settled in.  Oh that we would all talk to ourselves and others with compassion and kindness.  I appreciate the opportunity to begin again as I recognize a magic moment when I feel I have missed the mark; what a beautiful, beautiful practice.  VJJ
