There are moments in your life that happen. Moments you could not have thought up or dreamed about because you had no idea such a thing could ever occur. Yet somehow these moments present themselves. You are given the opportunity to embrace them and let them flow with you, guiding you along.
These moments are stepping stones in your life. Taking you from one place to another. However, describing them as stepping stones not seem adequate enough because these moments are life changing. Opening up a whole new door of possibility. Breathing life into your tired heart. Holding you gently. Nudging you along. Encouraging you to keep your head held high.
Sometimes these moments happen with individuals who come into your life for a brief moment in time. They change the course of our life forever and are gone in the blink of an eye, leaving you feeling in awe at the power of connection between individuals. There are many people in this world, many individuals we pass on a daily basis and spend time interacting with, but only a select few stirs our heart and wakes us up. Only a handful have the ability to creep in and see below our outer protective barrier.
Why is it that certain individuals connect and others do not? What is it that pulls us deeply into each other? What needs to be aligned so that connection happens? It is interesting to be roaming the roads of life and meeting so many different individuals and then unexpectedly meeting one that changes you. You are traveling down your own path and then through a brief encounter you are propelled in a direction you never dreamed of. The power of this is incredible.
Strangers can open you up. They can stand before you and accept you exactly as you are in that very moment. They do not know the past. They do not know your struggles. They just see you. You hold your heart in your hand revealing your true self. You stand there in all your being, radiating who you are. You never know if you will walk away with something new. A new opportunity, a new friend, a new chance to take.
Yes, one single moment can change your life. And you never know when that moment will happen. You just have to be ready to be present, be you, and be open. Because in one single moment your life could change forever.
