I came across this video last night and I wanted to share it. For me, it perfectly illustrates what a meaningful life moment is.
The video is only 4 minutes long and I promise that it’s worth more than that.
The video is of British naturalist Steve Backshall encountering a group of orcas.
What I love about this video is how “in the moment” he is.
Notice how he says this has probably been the two most incredible minutes of his life.
And notice the enthusiasm in his voice when he makes eye contact with an orca.
Now here’s the thing about a meaningful life moment.
You don’t need to sit in a kayak and watch orcas in order to have them.
What you do need is to wake-up, to pay attention, to be in the moment.
Meaningful life moments are all around you, every second of your life.
So here are my questions for you:
What were the two most incredible minutes of your life?
And were you paying attention when they happened?
Or were you somewhere else, and only noticed how incredible they were sometime later?
