Dungeon Prompts: The Turning Point

 This week’s prompt is: The Turning Point

“The secret of change is to devote all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”

– Socrates

“Commitment is that turning point in your life when you seize the moment and convert it into an opportunity to alter your destiny.”

– Denis Waitley

“As with any turning point or instance when a new road is chosen and an old one forsaken, there are consequences.”

– Michael J. Fox

Today’s Prompt:

You may have gone down a lot of different roads in your life, but tell us about the biggest turning point, or change of direction, that happened in it.  Was it inspired, or necessitated by circumstance?  Would you go back and change it if you could or was it the greatest thing that ever happened to you?  Tell us about a moment in your life when you suddenly decided to change direction.

The article that you link to this prompt should be a new post written specifically for this assignment. 

Dungeon Prompts can be a vehicle for us to open up the abandoned rooms inside ourselves and dust them off a bit.  Take the prompt, explore the recesses of your mind, and get back with a poem, story, essay or creative offering.  Link your post to this specific prompt page and I’ll share your link back with our readers.

1.            Tag your post with: “DungeonPrompts”

2.            Link back to this page in the body of your post *
