Truth Be Told…232 views
What defines a “life-changing” event? How big is it supposed to be? How important? We all have our own way of dealing with life and its various twists, depending on our perspective and how we deal with things. Every day has the potential to alter our perspective. Any random event at any given hour can turn our world upside down, and inside out.
To me, 2011 had many “life-changing” events, one of which is still in progress and is a long-term thing. Altering my perspective is an understatement. This thing brought out the very best and the very worst in me. It made me smile for no reason, made me the happiest for hundreds of reasons, and angry for thousands more. It even made me confused and it still does. I’m tolerating things I never used to before, things I never thought I ever would! And there’s no logical explanation to this. It just is.
It took me to new places, and gave me new experiences, and a new-found courage when dealing with people. It restored my confidence when tackling everyday problems, and showed my stubborn, spiteful character…
And now, almost 10 months later, it’s like an addiction, a volatile mixture of explosive elements in a fragile balance. It has its ups and long downs… It’s heaven and hell, ease and torment. It’s everything and nothing in particular. It’s chaos… It still makes me smile. It even makes me hysterical. It gets me criticized. It’s crime and punishment. It’s justice and reward. It’s a parody and paradox.
I don’t honestly remember my life before it. I can’t/don’t/wouldn’t want to imagine my life without it…
And it’s not the “T”.
