There are moments, whether personally tragic or adorned with beauty, that we examine who we are. We retrace the steps taken and roads traversed that have led us to this junction. The place, this condition, is rarely permanent. Conditions can shape us, become habit forming, and either improve our well-being or degrade those once unique attributes that defined our sought after character.
However, as mentioned earlier, conditions are seldom permanent. Under a hearth of self- awareness, reflection, or empathy, one can re-condition his prior altruism. One can sew a patch over the worn-out knee in his or her jeans or alter that belt by knifing another hole through it. Every moment of frustration can easily be a teachable moment, which then translates into a experience.
