A moment is the most flexible substance on earth, as it’s able to exist in every part of the earth at the same time, yet can also shrink to the size of a heartbeat. It’s long enough for anything to happen, but short enough to go unnoticed until it’s too late.
She takes each one as an opportunity that can’t be missed, even if there are several that are presented to her at the same time. She takes each one as a matter of life and death, because one can never truly tell until it’s too late. For her, it’s more than worth the trouble, and one of the few ways she can actually save herself from regret.
It only takes a moment to save herself, even though the moment should have felt longer. But just this once, she allows herself to celebrate a small victory, because she’s just given herself a few extra moments to enjoy.
