The premise of the contest is to describe a moment that completely transformed your life.
I think all of us, both young and old, have experienced events that have had a transformation effect on our lives.
For me, it initially happened two years ago when my father suffered two strokes. It's mind-blowing how something that happens in a brief-moment can have such everlasting effects on a life.
Although life from that point on has by no means been easy for me, I wouldn't change a thing. It's made me stronger and driven me more to accomplish my goals and dreams. I've gained insight into life most never know because of all the struggles from it.
I appreciate each day, along with the things that fill it, and I'm grateful for that.
"For any one of us our forever could end in an hour, or a hundred years from now... so you'd better make every second count."
