Life is full of defining moments, sometimes we are aware this moment will change our life and other times we are not so attuned to our participation, sometimes it is a moment that evolves into something far greater that what we anticipated. Defining moments are the moments in time where a decision, a situation, an occurrence or event alters the direction our life takes and defines who we become. These are the moments that define you, the moments that shape the way you experience life, the moments that in retrospect make you more aware of what you are doing and of what you have done, they offer insight into what it is to be you.
We have all experienced moments of regret, moments where we wish we had made a different choice, done it differently. Each choice, each action, each direction you take, is all part of the journey that is your life, and everything you experience is for the experience it gives you. Every choice is the right decision at the time, which is why you make it, it defines who you become, you who you are today because what you did yesterday. There are no wrong decisions, we do what we do for the experience of doing it, the experience it gives us and we evolve through doing it. So no regrets because what happened is exactly what was meant to happen for you to become who you have become, this is part of the journey you are on in this life.
In life we have choices, everything life presents us with gives us a choice, it is up to us what we do with what we are presented with. We can choose to be defined by what is happening or we can choose to accept the opportunity life is giving us and see the possibilities that exist in what is happening. This may be an opportunity for you to do things differently, this may be an opportunity for you to reconnect with yourself, it may be an opportunity to re-evaluate. Take a moment, take a breath and think about what you are doing, think about what you are creating through the actions you are taking, think about what you want and see the possibilities that exist here in this moment, see how this moment may define you. What you do with where you find yourself, what you do with what presents in your life is up to you.
Don’t get lost in circumstances, situations, or relationships, remember what is important in your life, remember what matters most to you. You are participating in this life, in what happens here, everything you do matters and it’s valuable because you are valuable and you have an impact. You can be the change you want to see, you can make a difference, you can do things differently, you can do it your way. You can make this a defining moment and make this be what you want it to be, what you do here is important, it matters how you participate in what is happens here.
Know that you matter, know that you have something to contribute to any situation you find yourself in, because only you can be you, only you can do what you do the way you do it. Don’t be afraid to be yourself, don’t be afraid to embrace what life presents you with, you are powerful and you can create a life you are happy living. Make an impact, have definition, make each moment defining. What you do here is up to you.
Love your life and life will love you back.
