We all have these moments,
Moments that the rest of our lives pivoted around.
Moments that when you look back
You can say well that
Lead to this
Which lead to that
Which lead to this other thing
And that’s how I got here.
And the events can be big
Or they can be small,
But for some reason they lead to a life completely different.
And sometimes those events make you cry
Or maybe you cringe with the pain that still seizes your heart
But hopefully you laugh
Hopefully you smile and think
I would never have guessed that would lead me here.
But here I am.
New, improved, older, wiser, better me.
And hopefully you don’t regret those moments.
Hopefully you accept them for what you’ve become.
Because I’ve had moments that felt like a mountain top
But lead me into the pits of hell.
And moments that felt like purgatory itself
But lead me to the happiest sunshine meadows of my life.
And I don’t want to change any of them.
I am who I have become and I have those moments to thank for it.
