that ‘a-ha’ moment

2013, October

i relish in ‘a-ha’ moments.


i spent quite some time last night talking with a good friend about life. how unexpected experiences throw “a spanner in the works” and you’re left wondering how the hell you’re going to deal with it because it wasn’t in your life plan. it wasn’t part of your vision.

it drains some of the light in your life and you can quickly lose sight of the things that matter, the things you can control and things that make you happy.

for some reason, after that little chat, ‘a-ha’ happened.

that exhausted flickering light bulb was replaced with a bright and shiny new one.

and i found that quite immediately everything was illuminated. everything.

and i saw the things that had been sat in the darker corners of my vision.

it’s refreshing, energizing, rejuvenating and every other word that describes a sense of renewal.

it’s glorious.

and i believe we are not limited to a number of ‘a-ha’ moments. i believe we get to experience a-ha moments again and again. and again.

because it always gets better.

no matter how hard it gets. it always gets better.

from my favorite motivational speaker eric thomas:
pain is temporary. it might last for a minute, an hour a day or even a year. but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. if you quit however, it will last forever.

it is good to grieve, necessary even. whatever it is you’re experiencing. but then when the ‘a-ha’ happens devour it.

“i got this”
