Have you ever had a moment in your life when you realized that everything you were exactly where you needed and wanted to be??

I had just had the shell of my house up. No windows doors etc. I came up late one Friday , pouring rain put a tarp up for a lean to. Bult a decent little fire and put the kettle on. All this time in pouring rain. I remember I had forgotten the sugar but it tasted great. I was home, soaked to the skin, not really cold with one huge grin. Still smile thinking on it over 30 years ago now.

Love those "frozen in time" moments of memory. Remember so much about us building this big joint. It was a joint project and looking back, so very very glad we did it. Its like our energy or vibrations are within all these walls, and the beauty of the nature setting its in...history speaks to us and others that come here. Have been told that often.

OK. I have had times in my life, amazing moments, where I felt at total peace, and I knew I was in a flow that was carrying me along exactly as I wanted to be carried along. I felt a state of grace descending on me. These moments always come out of nowhere, and they are savored. I think the last one occurred within the last year. I've had, maybe, ten to twenty such experiences, in my life.

My mind was on something that feels as good now as it did 30 years ago. Not a care for phraseology, or spare words and you are correct Gary O. No clue where everything came from. Maybe a message from my subconscious??:devilish::devilish::devilish:

'....you were exactly where you needed and wanted to be'

Yeah, actually most the time

I've had several moments, here and there, I felt I wanted/needed to be somewhere else...and in a hurry

Does that count?
That's so true, When I was so unhappy in the job I was in when my of so many years (30) boss left to move to the mainland to be with his children and grandchildren, this other guy took over and we really didn't like each other.I told myself, no matter what, if I'm where I am, I'm supposed to be there. And soon after we parted ways (the best that could have happened to me). I think acceptance instead of fighting things is what works best for me.

I seem to have learned early on to retain those “high point” moments when everything clicked or a goal was accomplished. Most recently, going on a great SR bus trip for the first time in several years after I had worked up enough mobility after the bone & joint problems to get up the bus steps. Sitting in the front, “on the road again...” “ Goin up the country, babe doncha wanna go...” 😊maybe not much for some folks but a blissful moment for me.

Isn't it something how we will look back and remember those "magic moments" in time, when at the time you were experiencing them, you just didn't seem to even be aware of the magic happening? Wondering what causes us to "freeze focus" a certain moment in time for future selective recall.
