Has anyone had a life-changing event?

Life changing events can be sudden or 'slow'. For instance a slow realization that the book you last read was so true, it was all about you - if you had followed the advice in it, you would be some place else today! It could be something that happened, it could be something that you experienced, it could be anything provided it changed your life in a way you did not expect. Would you like to share your life changing event, so that others may benefit?

Hi there rocky! I think that the biggest life changing event for me is when I gave birth and became a parent. It is much more life-changing than getting married. It gave me a really great sense of fulfillment and brought about lots of fears. I know how sensitive being a parent can be having your child watch your every move, put their trust in you, the responsibilities financially and the challenge of being a good role model for them. It changed how I view life. My values, my plans, my fears, my dreams - everything.

My life changing event was when I was 19 and found out I was pregnant. Not planned and plenty of protection. I got lucky though. The daddy was my boyfriend (no figuring out for me) and we had been together for along time. We loved each then and we are married now. We didn't jump into married until after our son was born. But still, when you aren't planning it, it does change your life in an instant. I am happy to say we have a baby boy and over a year later we are still happy.
