moments in our lives..

I was watching the tv show: One Tree Hill awhile ago. When Lucas' words at the end of the episode made me ponder on such moments in our lives - from the choices we make..being tested..

Life..trying to figure out what lies ahead beyond existence, but we never know what really does.

"There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves at a crossroads. Afraid. Confused. Without a road map. The choices we make in those moments can define the rest of our days.

Of course, when faced with the unknown, most of us would rather turn around and go back.

But once in awhile people push on to something better - something found just beyond the pain of going on it alone and just beyond the bravery and courage it takes to let someone in. Or to give someone a second chance.

Something beyond the quiet persistence of a dream.

Because it's only when you're tested that you discover who you truly are. And it's only when you're tested that you discover who you can be.

The person you want to be does exist, somewhere on the other side of hard work, faith and belief, and beyond heartache and fear of what lies ahead."
