We've all had them. Those "life lessons" that make us stop and think and possibly see the world, our environment, or even ourselves in a different light--the lessons we'll never forget. Some call them "Aha" moments.
Who was your mentor? Was it a teacher, a parent, or your best friend who helped to open your eyes and heart to learn? Maybe even a boyfriend? Or was it man's best friend: a pet? No matter who taught you or how you learned, we all agree that over time, they are truly unforgettable. What is that one particular lesson that stands out in your mind? Did it change the course of your life, or maybe it wasn't life-altering, but it helped to shape the person you are today? Whatever your lesson, send us your story by entering our contest and win prizes!
