In fact, life, our real lives, is lived in these moments. These moments are our life.

The “big ones” that everyone is ever striding towards (marriage, the house, a promotion, the baby, the vacation), these are generally good things. Some of them even beautiful. But spending your entire life racing towards them with tunnel vision presents major risk of a life that can go largely unlived. It can mean missing out on so much day to day beauty and richness, because you are so focused on the next big thing.
