Define means “to state or set forth the meaning of a word or phrase”.
For as long as I can remember I have wanted to know the meaning of words and phrases! Dictionaries have been to me a bit like a treasure chest, holding incredible truths and a wellspring of understanding! Beneath their ordinary bindings lie delightful, captivating and gratifying revelations.
Likewise, I find everyday-life filled with a multitude of defining moments. Moments, like definitions in a dictionary, that bring truth and understanding. Throughout my days, I encounter moments that cause me to search for understanding or grant me a glimpse into the truth — or sometimes the lie — living inside my heart.
Whether it be a candid moment with my grandchild, a heart-wrenching time with a friend, or a moment of laughter with my husband, I tend to look beyond the experience in order to glean some understanding. Upon grasping the understanding I move towards application of the truth that has been disclosed. I consider learning to be an action, not simply knowledge. I want to be a “doer” of truth!
So why call my blog “Defining Moments”? Because they are what has shaped my life. — past and present defining moments. Always, always, journals have been my “secret place” — where only the pages have heard the ramblings of my heart. Recording them here, and sharing them with others — now that’s a defining moment!
So this is it! My first post! A true Defining Moment!
