The Moments that Define Us

A few days after my first husband asked me for a divorce, I found myself on the floor in my hallway. After days of trying to work up the motivation, I had finally started for the kitchen to find some food. I only made it halfway there before a wave of sorrow overwhelmed me and I fell back down to my knees. 

I don't know how long I cried there, face down on the carpet. All I knew at the time is that the person I loved and had built a life with was leaving me. I felt like a failure. I believed I would never love again. I had no idea how I would move forward, and I seemed to have discovered an unlimited reservoir of tears. 

When the last wave of sobs quieted, I lay staring at the wall in that deep kind of self-pity that can easily turn to bitterness. I didn't want to move, I had stopped caring about food, and I really wasn't sure if I even cared whether I lived or died. 

Down on the floor, I noticed everything looked...different. It was a perspective I had never considered before, and I studied the flecks of lint on the carpet, searching for some kind of meaning for my life. 

My eyes focused on the baseboard across from me, and a glint of light caught my attention. I looked at it for several long moments before my curiosity won out over my destitution, and I finally scooted my way over to find out what it was. 

Courage HeartTucked between the baseboard and the carpet was a small silver charm with a single word engraved across the front: Courage.

It seems almost insignificant, but in that moment when I was at my lowest, reading that word gave me the hope I needed to continue breathing. I felt like no matter what the next days held, I could face them if I just kept taking one breath at a time.

I slept with the charm clutched in the palm of my hand that night, and the next day, I put it on a chain to wear around my neck. It was a constant reminder for me to keep moving forward.

Months later, my best friend saw my new necklace and did a doubletake--I didn't know at the time, but the charm was hers -- it had fallen off her bracelet months before, and had made its way to me when I needed it most. 

Looking back at that difficult time in my life, I feel a lot of gratitude. Even though at the time I felt like my world was ending, I went on to build a life better than my wildest dreams. I found new love, new purpose, and new peace. If I had given up that day, I would have missed out on everything.
