"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    There comes a time in everyone's life when something happens that causes you to re-evaluate the path you're on. This turning point will look different for everyone, but the point is to make whatever has happened in your life worth it. Don't let the experience that brought you here today be wasted. Use it as a springboard for the change that you know you need.

    This expression reminds me of the time my favorite team changed the game result. It was only 10 minuets left and one of our players was sent off the game, It was quite an incredible match.
    Our foreign player scored 3 goals in 10 minuets. I think that was a great sample of 'turning point' I've ever seen in my life.
