Moon's Zen Moments

Every day, I try to find moments when time stands still for me -- what I call my "Zen Moments." These Zen Moments -- snippets of peace, quiet and stillness -- help me get through a busy and stressful life. So, here, I share with you my Zen Moments that bring calm to my mind and happy to my soul. It is in these precious moments where I can be in touch with myself and appreciate my life with all of its blessings. And in this perfect stillness, I can also find the most inspiration to fulfill my life's purpose, promoting healthy & happy living. I encourage you to find your own Zen Moments each day -- they are wonderful, inspiring and have brought me some of the greatest peace and joy in my life! Please share your own Zen Moments under "Your Zen Moments" page as I would love to know what inspires you and gets you going every day! ~Moon
