While I find the idea of a Utopia intriguing, I wonder if a Utopia would be all that and a bag of chips. Wouldn’t it get boring? Would we still grow as a person? It makes me think what is really fantastic is a little something I’ve dubbed Utopian Moments. We all have moments in our live which feel Utopian. By having these Utopian Moments, I know life is a delicate balancing act. Sometimes when the balance finds perfection I have the Utopian Moment. It is beautiful and inspiring. This gives me the courage and encouragement to continue growing as person. Here are two of my Utopian Moments:
Utopian Moment 1 – I’m on the Indian Reservation in Oklahoma with a group of friends. We stop on a dirt road out in the middle of nowhere to mix up some more drinks. It is a warm clear night. The sky is full of tons of sparkling lights and we are surrounded by fireflies. We couldn’t tell the difference between the fireflies and stars. All four of us stood there taking in the magical Utopian Moment feeling like we were in the middle of the stars. Sometimes when I’m having a rough time I can close my eyes and this Utopian Moment returns to me. It is like a touchstone in my life.
Utopian Moment 2 – This is a compilation of moments. Baby Bug sleeps in the same room with us in her own bed but around 2 or 3 she wakes up crying so I put her into bed with us. She goes right back to sleep beside me. Around 6 she wakes up and curls up with her daddy while I go make her morning bottle. I love these moments when she wakes up beside me and tries to work her way over to her daddy for a morning cuddle. It is so cute. There have been several nights she has slept all night in her bed so I’m enjoying every single morning she is with us. All too soon all I will have left is my memory.
Do you have Utopian Moments in your life? Would you prefer to live in a Utopia or to have Utopian Moments in an imperfect world?
