Create Moments in Your Community

Engaging in First Moments is great. Creating First Moments for others is even better. Want to make a positive impact in your community? Consider ways to introduce others to the magic of First Moments.

One of the most rewarding things we've done since starting Life and Whim is to create events, initiatives, and community spaces, such as Traverse City's Fairy Trails and Street Pianos, that bring joy to others.

You can do the same thing where you live. All it takes is a bit of creativity and collaboration. Odds are that you've thought to yourself, "Wouldn't it be great if...," but perhaps never took action on your moment of inspiration. The next time this happens, grab a notepad and dig a bit deeper. If you don't, you're depriving others—and yourself—of the opportunity for a fun and exciting experience.

Have you ever envisioned a new event that would bring people together in your community or a new space that would allow children to express their creativity? It may seem daunting to bring this vision to life, but take it from us: It's easier than you may think.

Creating happiness by creating First Moments can be simple. First Moments come in all sizes. The smallest of efforts can have a really big impact. So get out there and do something big or small for someone in your community today – make it a moment that they will always remember!


We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
