We can see life as one big adventure, full of moments that touch us. Some moments touch us more deeply than others. They stay in our mind, as memories, solidified by the emotions we felt at the time.

Some moments that we remember are affirming of who we are. They connect with the way we see ourselves. Consistent with the view of ourselves we see in our mind's eye. Reaffirming what we already know.

Other moments challenge this view. They may help us connect more deeply with ourselves, as we learn something new about ourselves. Or we see ourselves in a different way because of our connections with others. A simple sentence can help us see ourselves as others see us. We can be surprised pleasantly, that people notice something about us we hoped they would or they notice something good that we hadn't known about ourselves.

Some moments tell us something about how others see us. Perhaps they misunderstood something we said. We can learn from those moments too. To think about how we say things, whether we sound flippant when we are really very serious, whether our words and actions don't match and people see through it. Or perhaps we are tapping into territory that others are not ready for.

If we see our life journey as a series of connected and disconnected moments, we may face each day differently. We might make each interaction count, we might think about ourselves and our contribution to the world, we might look for ways to join the dots between the moments. To see our life as a whole.
