Boy oh boy, didn’t see that coming. That impact moment that changes your life in some way. It doesn’t necessarily have to be this huge blown up experience. It can be a small act, a conversation, something you come across in a movie, on tv, or something read.
That moment and experience can have such an impact that it lingers in your mind and heart. It can prompt a change in behavior, thought and perception. You might be stuck in a rut or living your routine and then all of sudden you’re completely thrown off track. In fact, you may find yourself on a completely different track.
What can you do? Try to understand why you were impacted and grow from the experience. We know there are negative and positive moments. We also know that we can take any experience and react as we choose to. There are a lot of things in life that will fly right over our heads or things we do not give a second thought about. Sometimes though, something unexpected happens that really changes you and you might not be aware of it. You just feel and see life in a different way.
Sometimes, blessings are really good at disguising themselves.
