It seems that many times in life there is a moment or an action that changes your whole world. It could be just a look that someone gives you.
Many times it can be something rather small. Something hardly noticeable by anyone but you. However when it happens you know you have crossed over into a whole other world. You have come to one of those huge defining moments in your life. A line has been crossed.
Like in the movie "Doctor Zhivago" when he had seen enough and turned his horse in another direction and left not caring if he was caught or not.
Or even when a marriage ends. Years of yelling and screaming and unhappiness ends one day because you didn't load the dishwasher properly. It wasn't the dishwasher and how it was loaded. It was everything that lead up to that moment!
My marriage was over years before that one moment came for me.
As they say it was "The straw that broke the camel's back."
That moment that tells you that you have been living a lie. That moment that tells you that you are done.
Done with the job, the relationship, the religion or sadly with life itself.
For a lack of a nail the shoe was lost. For the lack of a shoe the horse was lost. For the lack of a horse the rider was lost. For the lack of a rider the battle was lost.
What has been your defining moments?
