Maybe I'm thinking this because this weekend for three different friends, their lives are changing- as in big life moments. They either got engaged or are having a baby. Those are the big life moments we seem to reach as we get older but then I realize that the great joy of having those life moments is the long (or short) journeys we take from one mountain top to another. Life is a journey down the path of life but sometimes there's a climb involved or a risk to be taken- adopting, getting married, having children, moving, changing jobs, making the decision to walk away from the farm or ranch or at least change the way it's been going, or what ever the big thing is that we are experiencing now.Sometimes the big moments are always happy, sometimes they really suck. All I know is sometimes it takes risk to ask the question, step out on faith, entrust what is most important to us to another person, or just keep moving forward because what seems to be a hard or difficult time will come to an end.
While I have the calmness of not having any huge moments in my life at this time, I think I should be contemplating what I have been learning the past few years because eventually I'll have a big moment and I don't want it to overshadow the small things I've experienced or learned.
