A "life-changing" moment...?

Have you ever had an experience where you just thought to yourself, "WOW!!! I will never be the same!!!" ?

Birth of a child? The moment you found out the person you love, felt the same for you? When you got into a college/university you really wanted? A job you were hoping for, & they hired you? Overcoming an illness, or achieving a goal?

(And please, if the best thing you can say is the gigantic dump you just took, save it----it's not amusing; & really not all that special, unless you are a post-surgical patient!!)


OK---"Yes" works...but my bad for not saying, "Please elaborate"-----

Update 2:

(Helixburger...I hope you weren't joking there...

I'm almost four weeks into recovery, & suddenly having a really bad time w/ it...I can't sleep!!!

May sound stupid/desperate....but getting on Yahoo Answers has been helping.)

If your answer was true, Thank you!!!

Update 3:

And thanks to everyone else who replies!!

I love reading this kind of stuff!!

    Yes, the day my son passed away. This was the first time I had to experience death. I learned to be grateful for everything. I no longer took for granted that what i went to sleep with in my life would be there come morning. I also learned that the answer as to "why" doesn't always exist here on earth. And instead of asking "why couldn't I have a little longer", I now say "Thank you for the time I had".

    i was looking for a supervisor at work, and saw a guy i presumed to be one. at the time i had a habit of asking supervisors if they were a "God", so i asked this guy if he was. he looked at me and said "Sure".

    I fell in love with him with that word, lol and we've been inseperateable ever since.
