☆  moment  機会


Usually we use “moment” to refer to a very short period of time, such as a few seconds. When you ask someone to help you, they might say, “Just a moment.” meaning they will help you in a few minutes.

However, it also has the meaning like today’s word, of being a moment in time when something happens. For example, the moment you decided to change jobs. Or the moment you met someone who would change your life. Or the moment when you had an Aha for a situation you are dealing with. So, in this case, moment can also be similar in meaning to chance or opportunity.
