Theme: Defining moments

Yangzhou, Jiangsu

In dictionary, the word has two meanings:
1. A moment in time that defines somethings, such as a person’s success or failure, achievement or demise, talent, etc.
2. A point at which the essential nature or character of a person, group, etc. is revealed or identified.
We all have had more than one defining moment in our lives. In many cases, I believe that we have ‘mini-moments’ that are in the path of the big-style defining moment - like tremors before an earthquake.
Defining moments can take many forms: a person, a tragedy, an act of courage, a flash of inspiration and so on. It can be incredibly positive experiences that are exciting and empowering or in opposite, result in negative outcomes. Also, defining moments always occurs when we are taking action. It seems to be a choice between two paths. It is necessary and important for everyone to make time to quiet the mind and reflect. In the selection process, we are probably stuck in a spiral of inaction as we try to make the perfect decision. It should be cautious to say ‘no’ to an opportunity that does not feel right or say ‘yes’ to an opportunity that may change the course of your life.
Sometimes we are not even aware that we are experiencing a defining moment until years later when we realize that a seemingly small event shaped who we are today. A tiny one can change our perspective on life and in doing.Yet it is through our choices that we get to create our defining moments.
This theme is broad enough which occur in every discipline, addressing a variety of topics and everyone can interpret it in their personal way and connect the theme to different concepts or events.
