A lifetime is made up of moments and there are only so many. Within these seemingly endless stream of moments, there are special ones. Ones that force us to make a snap decisions, Ones that define us. These are the moments that make us who we are.
I have many such moments stored up in my 41 years of memory. It surprises me how many of them were small things, moments that on the surface appeared insignificant. In circumspect I can see how one thing leads to another…and another… and another…
My fault lies not with one decision per se, but my inability to make any decision at all. I’ve been letting fate decide my whole life.
Sometimes life comes at you like a runaway train and forces your hand rather abruptly. Other times, more often than not, fate sprouts silently. It comes to you at night in a whisper that you can’t quite hear. Every night it gets louder and louder,a little at first, but then…
It gets louder and loUDER AND LOUDER.!
UNTILL IT IS SCREAMING AT YOU!!!
Do you listen?
I have decided to listen. To that voice screaming at me to do something. This thing I must do takes courage.
I must come out of the shadows. come out into the light and share my little part of the sky.
