“Every person has moments in their life that define who they are. These experiences hold the power to change our lives forever. When you look back on your life, how many times can you say ‘that’s the moment that it all changed'”
I recently had to compose a digital story for one of my English classes and the above sentences were the opening lines. It was inspired by my recent reflections on my life. Lately I’ve been thinking about my life and how it has come to be. I often wonder about the exact moments in my life that led me to where I am today, because every day we make decisions. Tiny, insignificant decisions, but eventually those choices begin to add up, and compile, until we find ourselves at a completely different place than we were a year ago. And I’ve come to realize that every moment has grand significance. I want to be so aware of each moment as they are happening and although it might sound cliche, I want to live every moment as if it were my last. x.
