Harold: The Lightbulb Moment Experience


As a child, Harold was deaf.This picture shows his face as he hears for the first time.In his face, I see: astonishment, fear, excitement and awe.It's a beautiful photo, and I think it really encapsulates what it's like to see (or hear) something clearly for the first time.This doesn't have to be sound. It could be a realisation, a light bulb moment, an insight - something that deepens our self-knowledge.Light bulb moments can be intense, liberating and evoke all the emotions above, no matter how small they might seem.Journalling, meditation, sentence completion, therapy: all these activities can bring on lightbulb moments.I wonder when your next one will be?********If you'd like to have more lightbulb moments, would like to learn more about yourself and would like to explore what makes you tick, sign up for 12 Weeks to Self-Knowledge.
