What power does a single moment hold? A second is so much more than a tick on a clock — it can be a touch, a vision, a sound, a smell, a thought, a feeling, a memory — all of these exist in the breadth of one moment. Within a second, anything can happen, anything can change, anything is possible!

In the busy hustle and bustle of our day to day lives, we often take for granted those precious moments that become our days, our weeks, and even our years. We may forget to pause for just a second to breath in what is around us and what the universe has brought to us in each moment. All it takes is a second — a moment of full presence and awareness to appreciate those who support us; a second to hug the ones we love and let them know they matter; a second to offer a smile to a neighbor, or stranger who might just need that act of kindness to transform their day; a second to embrace life — to love, forgive, accept, surrender, and even feel! Every moment matters. Why waste it?

Below is a short video that shows us the beauty of a second. We encourage you to absorb this message and think about how awareness in a given moment can enhance your life’s experience. This Thanksgiving, take a second or more to show your gratitude to everything and everyone who make up the landscape of your life — which is the very essence of our being.

We at Blue Courage are grateful for the love and support we receive from our families, team members, mentors, partners, and all of you who live the Blue Courage philosophy every day. Know that your commitment and efforts illuminate a path toward a brighter tomorrow.

We wish you and your loved ones a very Happy Thanksgiving!
