What was the moment in your life in which everything changed? A moment that tested you? A moment that asked you to show up in a different way?
You may have heard this described as a defining moment.
I call it a marker moment.
I like this term because it suggests that there is a mark and a marker; there’s a mark maker and a mark made. Human beings are like Magic Markers in that we want to leave our stories behind permanently. So that people know we were here. That we had a life. That we had some responses to that life that we’d like to share.
