Are you aware of all the moments around you?
We’re all so busy. Rushing from one task to the other, with barely time to take a breath…. trying to get it all done…. failing… feeling awful about our failure… and getting up the next morning to repeat it all over again.
We get to the end of the day and wonder, “What did I really do today? What did I really achieve? What am I doing here?”
Every now and then, though, wispy flashes of magic appear in front of us. If we’re really paying attention, we notice those moments. We can almost see the Universe at work in the smallest thing.
Suddenly, the world doesn’t seem to hinge on our endless to-do lists. Things stop spinning, or, at the very least, slow down.
It’s more than just “stop and smell the roses.” It’s about being present in life. Really seeing life, the world, the synchronicities, the life force, love, magic all around us.
Most of us are familiar with the phenomenon of these moments: the song that touches something deep inside, the infant peacefully asleep, the poem that speaks to our soul, a gorgeous sunset.
A meaningful life, one well worth living, is more than taking breaks from the daily grind. It’s finding that element in any moment that stands up to say, “Look at me! I’m right here in front of your eyes! All that other stuff… it can wait. Pay attention to me!”
I was lucky enough to be paying attention at times, as well as to capture some of these moments. As much as we want a witness to our moments – or at least a memory – it’s the moment itself that is important, not the capturing of it.
This book is a collection of moments that caught my eye, took my breath away, called out to my soul.
With each photo and its story, I’ve also included a short Find Your Moments Tool to help inspire you to be aware of the moments all around you.
These bits are there all the time – we just have to find our moments.

What a beautifully photographed book to look at, while at the same time being beautifully written! Dawn Shuler gives us wonderful tools to grab on a crappy day to help turn that day around, or just enjoy curled up with a cup of tea. I can open the book anywhere, let the Universe choose what I need to read and see in that moment, and get a boost of good feeling! Her experiences and insights are so relatable. It's a self help, coffee table and meditation book all rolled into one!
