Have you ever came to a point where you had to choose a path that would determine your future?
Describe a pivotal moment in your life that would ultimately decide your future. How did you come to this point and did it take your life in the direction that you wanted to go?
The one I am thinking of right now, did not take me in the direction I wanted to go.
The decision was to have children. The beauty and joy and love and happiness that my children have brought me far exceeds any direction I could have hoped for.
Another was a decision to stop practicing law. I look back on all the opportunities I would have missed had I chose to remain and realize what a right decision that was.
My answer to your main question is 'yes.'
Describing the pivotal moment to my own satisfaction would require more space than allotted here.
In a nutshell, there was a single most pivotal point in my life, at the turning of the millennium.
It was a very difficult choice. It took my life in a direction I could not have imagined, opening vast horizons. 'Wanting' is to me something that the ego does. Instead, I would say it was a happening determined by destiny and my higher self.
Still, my personality made the decision, which was to be true to myself. It took me out of a 25 year marriage, out of the illusion of security, into the unknown.
My experience was very much as Robert Frost wrote,
"...Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
