The Little Defining Moments

I’m running out of juice for #reverb10 – many of the prompts feel repetitive, and it’s been a long month. But I’m so close, I feel like I have to finish!

The 12/29 prompt asks about the defining moment(s) of 2010. (Defining Moment: Describe a defining moment or series of events that has affected your life this year.)

Not coincidentally, the defining moments included those when I felt most alive. Finishing my first 5k, making big decisions, hanging out with new friends in new places. Essentially, 2010 was the year of change and adventure and new things.

Every decision I made, from the big hairy decisions (the breakup) to the simple “sure” responses to various invitations to new places and new things helped define me and the year.  And I won’t really understand their true impact until years down the road. It’s hard to define your year when the year isn’t quite over and you haven’t yet realized what was really important or set the stage for other things.

So maybe it’s an easy way out of a prompt, but it fits.

How about you? What was your defining moment of 2010?

This post is part of #Reverb10, a month-long project to reflect on the year nearly gone. Read all my #Reverb10 posts, or learn more.
