What do consider to be the highlight of your life so far? Do you think it’s something that you might be able to exceed in the future?Fandango’s Provocative Question #31
A tough question to answer for me for two reasons…
Firstly, I’m a mum. Nothing in the world can beat the moment you hold your newborn child in your arms. For me this will never happen again. At thirty eight and with two grand-babies, I am extremely unlikely to ever become pregnant again, let alone want to, and so this will never be topped in my opinion.
Secondly… If I take away all of the Mum experiences that will always top my highlights list then the highlight of my life would have to be the backpacking trip I took around New Zealand some ten years ago.
Mum had planned the trip for her and a friend but unfortunately (for them) the friend became ill a few weeks before they were due to fly out and so mum brought me in as a stand in.
We flew from Heathrow to Hong Kong and then Hong Kong to Auckland, followed by four weeks exploring the islands. It was utterly amazing and an experience I doubt I will ever be able to afford to replicate; certainly not whilst mum duties sap my resources anyways.
I have lived some amazing and special experiences already in my life that would be extremely difficult to beat but I certainly hope that I haven’t lived all of my life’s highlights already, I’m hoping I have a fair bit of life left to live yet and it will be a dull ride if I’ve already experienced the most riveting bits.
