“Life is not made up of minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years, but of moments. You must experience each one before you can appreciate it.”
Sarah Ban Breathnach
Life-defining moments. We all have them. Yet when we think of them in abstract terms, we think they are these huge events. But the keys are often not in huge events. They are in small, seemingly insignificant events that truly define us as who we are and who we choose to be.
In every person’s life, there have been moments, both positive and negative, that have defined and redefined who you are. Those events entered your consciousness with such power that they changed the very core of who and what you thought you were. A part of you was changed by those events, and caused you to define yourself, to some degree by your experience of that event.
Some of the most defining moments in your life may seem like “little” things however they are not so little. Something that means the world to you and is very important to you may not seem as important to someone else.
Sometimes, when we look back at our lives, we see it is the same moments that take our breath away that breathe purpose and love into our life.
Take the time and look for those ‘little’ big things that occur in your life.
“Many of the most deeply spiritual moments of my life haven’t happened just in my mind or in my soul. They happened while holding my son in the middle of the night, or watching the water break along the shore, or around my table, watching the people I love feel nourished in all sorts of ways.”
