Pivotal Moments

arch (copy)

We all have pivotal moments as we journey along the path of life,  Jeff Goins changed my world through the written word. Peering down the seemingly endless dark tunnel, I could see my hopes and dreams waiting in the distance, forever clinging to the edge of reality. I waited for the right time to start writing, maybe after the first baby I thought, or maybe after we move to the country. Life gets in the way and we leave it for a better day.

Jeff taught me to step out of my comfort zone and bring my dreams into the now. He reminded me about the hard work and the dedication I needed to reach my goals. If I had not taken the Tribe/writers course I never would have started a blog. Not to mention ever meeting all you wonderful people in the blogging hemisphere, nor would I be working on my children’s book. I learned that now is a good time to start your dreams thanks to Jeff Goins.

Jeff is a writer of substance, he touches your heart with genuine stories, leaving a positive message of hope and change in a busy world. A world infested with far too much emphasis on work related issues and the value of stature.

His new book is on sale this week. The In-Between, is a book about giving your life a sense of meaning, embracing the moments and being present in the now.

Often the smallest memories are all we have, our days are a constant series of moments in time, yet we forget to stop in the in-between and enjoy the beauty around us. What can these minute experiences teach us? Spend time with your loved ones, I mean, real-time, there are no guarantees. Appreciate what you have, instead of wishing you had more. Please consider reading this book, I can’t wait for my copy to arrive in the mail. You won’t regret your connection with jeff, his energy and passion for life is infectious.

Do You Feel Stuck in the In-Between?

The-In-Between-shadow-570x570

Most of us spend our lives searching and longing for something more than what’s in front of us. Whether it’s traveling abroad or chasing cheap thrills, we’re all looking for the medicine to satisfy our restlessness. And, so often, we’re looking in the wrong place. The In-Between is a call to accept the importance that waiting plays in our lives by helping you:

  • Find personal meaning in the times that make the least sense.
  • Hone the underestimated art of living in the moment.
  • Experience the joy that comes with embracing inconveniences.

Can we embrace the extraordinary nature of the ordinary and enjoy the daily mundane — what lies in between the “major” moments?

Our greatest opportunities for growth

Moments of breakthrough are not where life’s greatest transformation happens; the stuff that God uses to shape us often lies in the in-between. It’s the bus stops and layovers and DMV lines and moments of unintentional pause that force us to become better people. That’s not to say there aren’t moments of epiphany. There are. It’s just that most of us find ourselves living somewhere in the in-between. Learning to live in this tension, to be content in these moments of waiting, may be our greatest struggle — and our greatest opportunity to grow.

Now available for preorders!

    great article and photo to go with it, good luck with your children’s book. How is the adventurers of Mani the prey mantus going?

    • Hi Suzanne Mani is in a pile somewhere but when I finish Sugar I will drag him out and may request some other praying mantus shots from you and have a little educational bit at the back about how healthy your garden is, if these creatures are playing in it, with an acknowledgement to you of course, thats in the future for sure.
