I was once stood on the wall of my house by an armed car jacker who could have taken my life in an instant. As fate had it, I escaped. For years I could see his face when i closed my eyes, nervous, sweating, yelling at me and pushing the barrel of his gun against my chest and I remember the anger i felt towards him. I would relive it in my mind as if it were happening right now. The universe puts obstacles in front of us in so many forms. And those obstacles force a choice. On the one hand I could have cowered in fear and allowed the experience to consume me as a victim. But on the other hand, it had the potential to empower me. To force me to take responsibility for how I would choose to live life going forward. I don’t hate my attacker anymore. I don’t see him in my thoughts except in the realization of how necessary he was to force my choice. And I have chosen. @marwanmbk #lifehappensoutdoors
