Perfect Moment Monday -- I Feel Complete

Each week I participate in Perfect Moment Monday, sponsored by the blog, According to Weebles, "Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect Moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between." And so, here is a Perfect Moment for this week.

Last week I was sitting in the lobby of my health club, reading at a book while waiting for my kids to show up after their camp. When I am the carpool driver, I drop five boys off at camp and then go to the gym to get in a quick one-hour workout before they walk to the gym and pick me up.

Engrossed in my book, a gentleman walked up to me and said, "Are you Sheri Fisher?"

"Yes, I am," I said.

"I have wanted to meet you," he continued. "My name is Mark, and I read your column each week. I particularly liked the one you wrote for Father's Day. It was a great article. You have some real talent."

We continued our conversation for about five minutes and I could tell that my energy was beaming. I was SO touched by his compliment and that he went out of his way to introduce himself and mention my column, particularly the one about Father's Day because I believe it was divinely inspired.

He said, "I am not really into this kind of stuff, but if I could read auras, I imagine yours would be huge and colorful."

I thanked him for his kind words, which meant a lot to me.

It's not the first time that someone has mentioned my column or complimented me on one of the articles, but it really hit me that I have an impact on many more people than I realize.

It's easy to get caught up in simply writing the column from the comfort and perceived anonymity of my when this happens, it is like the circle becomes complete.

I get inspired.

I write an article.

My article gets published.

People read my article and are impacted by what I say.

They compliment me and I again know that I am on my spiritual path fulfilling part of my life purpose.

Somehow this completion feels so gratifying. I feel complete.

This, to me, is...Perfect.

I can't say I'm surprised. I find that when people speak authentically, they have the power to affect others.

I, too, like the idea of your aura. I wonder if he really was seeing something?

I really loved that Father's Day article, too.

We love the idea of a growing audience, don't we? I count the page views, beam at the number of comments. But it only takes ONE. That one person is who we're writing for.

Nice story. Now I'm heading to look up your Father's Day column...
