There are many moments in my life that I consider to be momentous, some are good and some are not so good, but they are all important and all shape the person that I am today. From first memories, to childhood achievements and disappointments to meeting the man who I'm happily spending my life with I cherish them all.
But there are a few 'moments' that are perhaps not so conventional, and by that I mean I really do believe I've seen into my future on a few occasions. I don't think I'm psychic and I'm not a believer in supernatural, but on occasion I've been struck with something that I'm absolutely convinced is going to happen even though I couldn't possibly know for sure.
The majority of these things are very personal and I wouldn't share them online, but what I will say is that the feeling of knowledge, a flash of insight, has given me comfort, almost like having a caring arm wrapped around my shoulder. It's taken away a worry or an uncertainty and helped me carry on when the going was tough. Perhaps it's a form of self-belief, or determination, I'm not sure, but it felt like an external force at play in my mind.
I guess what I'd like to do now is be convinced that I'm going to win the lottery, or jet off to a luxury hotel in the sun for a few months, or perhaps just have all the things that pull me out of the 'moment' when I'm writing - the telephone, the doorbell, real life duties - be suspended for a little while.
