We had to climb a good distance to get to the top of Deer Park Heights from where we were dropped off. It was quite steep. So steep that I almost stepped into this pond as I came over the rise. Very convenient as I needed to catch my breath anyhow. Catch my breath and take a moment to reflect.
Some experiences change you. Call them pivot points, critical milestones or defining moments - you know the ones. They are the enlightening experiences big or small that reshape not only where you are headed but who you are at a core level. Times that move us to more closely align our authentic selves and core values with our true calling.
My most recent defining moment happened right there, in Deer Park Heights, while attending Trey Ratcliff's New Zealand Photo Adventure. It was a big moment. The whole adventure in fact was big! You can see how profoundly I was impacted in the clip they recorded of me for this video (it's late in the reel but watch the whole thing - you'll get to see all the great folks I met.) I am nearly speechless, barely coherent.
Can you name 5 pivotal moments in your life so far? Perhaps a critical milestone is on your horizon. Maybe it will happen today! Have a good one my friends.
