I know, it’s been a minute *covers face…
First off, when I selected this topic, it seemed to me that the phrase, ‘Defining Moments’ appears to be a tad too serious and well, philosophical. Still, the point to be made is that in life, most people have one or more experiences that makes them view life differently, sometimes in a calmer, more matured light.
For me, I have had quite a few of such moments starting 2009 when it was starkly and very practically impressed upon me that it is not of him/she that willeth but of the Lord that showeth mercy….After the encounter, I became much calmer and seemed to mature in leaps and bounds almost overnight. With the encounter, also came the realisation that what did not kill me would only make me stronger…
And so, at moments when I seem to be at my wits end, I remember that defining moment and draw strength from it, rest assured that such moments too shall pass, or as a cleric once said, if you are unhappy that you lost something, you should give thanks that you have not lost everything…after all, where there is life, there certainly is hope.
I am not so certain that this is the turn I intended this narrative to take when I began penning down my thoughts but again, what am I but a pencil in the hand of my creator.
This is part of my story. What’s yours?
We should use our individual stories to prod us on when our feet seem leaden.
