Every now and again we have a moment that can change our life's direction. It can happen in a split second and it can be totally outside our control. It can change our life for the better or for the worse.
It can be a moment when we slip and fall, potentially causing long term or permanent damage. Or we can recover quickly and end up just with a tiny mark or bruise.
It can be those serendipitous moments when we meet someone new. It could be the split second decision to sit in a particular place on the train or to catch the elevator just at that moment or the decision to attend a party. It is times like this, simple daily decisions we hardly think about, when our lives can change if we meet the person we end up spending our life with or meet someone who will have a major influence on us.
Meeting someone influential doesn't have to end up being a long term relationship to be memorable or significant. Sometimes we meet just the right person at the right time to help us understand something in a new way, appreciate what we have or learn something completely new.
There are many day to day choices and decisions we make that at the time seem unimportant but can make a big difference to the way we feel about ourselves, the way others see us and that influence how we live our future life. We can look out for these and find them but don't be surprised if some of them find us.
