A Turning Point is an earthquake of the soul.
It’s a seismic shift in our outlook and way of life. Its aftermath leaves us unsettled, redefined, changed, and there’s no going back.
Everybody experiences turning points in their lives. They can be as obvious as a wedding or a conversion experience and as subtle as a timely word spoken by a mentor or a nascent thought that causes you to rethink your thinking.
They can also be moments that tear you apart. The loss of a mother, moving away from a place you love, for example. These quakes can strike at any moment. They will redefine you. You must, therefore, make sure they redefine you in the right way.
While it’s true, the days and weeks of our lives are for the most part stable; life can, and often does, change in an instant. Take some time this week to reflect. Answer this question: What have been three of the most powerful turning points in my life?
