i recently read a blog about with a post called the moment everything changed. based on this book. it's about moments in life when everything changes, impacts everything else to come in life. obviously our life is full of moments like these, but some are more apparent than others. i thought about my moment and i think it all goes back to the time i spent on cape cod. i moved there for a part-time job that i had hoped would move to a full time position. the time eventually came that a full-time position opened up within my office. i was ecstatic, i knew for sure this was the sign that i was meant to be in the stranding field forever and i was going to live on cape cod forever. i didn't get the promotion. i was devastated. it sent me in to a tail spin and i wasn't sure what to do with my life. i decided to move home and work part-time at the local marine science insitute. for awhile i wasn't sure if i had made a good decision or not. eventually it became apparent that it was a good fit. i was good at my new job. i liked it. i spent the next 5 years. if i didn't move home i wouldn't have found a career that was perfect for me. i wouldn't have met my husband. i wouldn't have met my friends from my last job. i wouldn't have found my brand new job that i love so much. i would never have moved to south carolina. and i wouldn't have my dogs! (most important, right?!? ;)).
so what's your moment? or moments?
i know it's some deep thinking for a friday. but it's also fun :)
now it's time for some grey's and wine. and little less deep thinking than earlier.
