The A-Ha Moments in Life...
We all have that moment, or moments, in life when things suddenly become clear to us. The moment when we discover who we are, what we want, and where we need to be. To me, the aha moment is liken to an awakening, or a rebirth. Aha moment is defined as a sudden realization, inspiration, insight, recognition, or comprehension. It can happen at any time.
The last few months have been filled with aha moments for me, and with those moments have come inner peace, and happiness. I believe the key to aha moments is inward reflection. I had to ask myself what I really wanted, why I wanted it, and what was I willing to do to get it, and to keep it.
Aha moments apply to so many things in life. It can be about the creation of an invention. The moment you finally figure out how to make that one thing work. Or the moment you master math. It can even be the moment you realize it's over, and it is time to move on. The aha moments can be happy, sad, exhilarating, or anxiety inducing, but either way you had your realization. And now you can move forward.
Heading into 2018 is a more goal oriented, and driven Charlene. I temporarily allowed myself to become distracted, and less focused, which is out of character for me. The year of 2017 was full of uncharacteristically bad decisions, mainly with people. The aha moments have arrived, and I plan to let some people who do not deserve to be in my life go, and write my heart out all of 2018.
What was your aha moment of 2017? How will it impact your 2018?
There are things that we don't want to happen but we have to accept, things we don't want to know but we have to learn, and people we can't live without but we have to let go. - Unknown Author
