Moment(um)

In physics, a moment is a quantity derived from force and distance. In colloquial terms, a moment is defined as a short period of time in relation to another. The right occasion, the perfect opportunity, the time to shine, can also be defined as moment, as in “If you want to be successful, this is your moment”.

To Alana, moment (from the latin word “momentum”) is MUCH more than that. If you give me a chance, I’ll happily explain what I mean.

Life gives us opportunities.

Turns out, life gives us opportunities, second after second, to create moments. It also happens to be that sometimes, we live life on autopilot, and are unable to enjoy those moments. Hundreds of thousands of those moments become great memories day after day, and to no surprise, many of our greatest memories come from sharing a special occasion with someone.

My favorite moments, personally, are those that leave us a with a good taste – those moments that bring out a smile to our face, those moments that take us to a special place, those moments that create a special feeling. Butterflies. I undoubtedly believe in investing in those moments, creating them, and above all, sharing them.

6,000 thoughts.

Some time ago, I read that a human being has 6,000 thoughts on a daily basis, and that approximately 95% of those thoughts are neither new nor positive. They generally consist of the past or future - what we forgot to do, what we need to do, what we haven’t started doing, what we have pending, and what we should do, among others.

This leads me to think that it is human nature (our mind) that wants to escape the present, when in fact, the present is what exists to make us happy. Yoga is one of the most recommended practices for this – to feel the now, to acknowledge our breathing, and to analyze our thoughts without clouding them. It helps us remove the burden of the past, while leaving aside the anxiety of the future.

Moments worth remembering.

When I think of Alana, I think of creating moments that are worth remembering, of creating an impact. I am also fully convinced that it is in fact the perfect opportunity to help make the world a better place. The opportunity to educate, employ, and empower a woman who lives under different (most likely harder) circumstances than I do…just brings a smile to my face and a hug to my heart. Better yet, it is they who are actually creating an impact on me. So yes… I’ll keep insisting. These are MY favorite types of moments.

It's simple physics.

Physics taught me that an object without force has no moment(um). Life taught me that I should share my force with other women, especially those that need it the most, to help empower them with opportunities…the opportunities that every single one of us deserves.

Although many claim that we must give without receiving anything in return, I find it often times difficult to understand that philosophy - I believe in reciprocity, and that empowering others empowers me. Alana lets me put my own philosophy into practice.

Live the moment.

Do the exercise – live the moment. Be conscious of your breathing, create new memories, share them, and most importantly, share your force. That way, you’ll create more impact not only in your own personal life, but in the life of someone else.

Share your force. Be the impact. Create the moment, today.
