I was chatting with my son, Connor, and learned something pretty awesome. He joined the Air Force, but told me about his interview, and what he shared blew me away.
He said that, in his interview, he was asked about his biggest challenge. He’s faced several, but what he said that he’d replied with stopped me.
He said “When I joined the military they asked for a difficult challenge I had to overcome, and I said when you got in a accident the father I knew before the accident was gone from his (your) memory to the point where for sometime you needed to relearn about your past through others.”
I’ve faced challenges, of that there’s no doubt, but I’d never thought of it impacting others, not even my family.
Smileys exist for a reason, and I’d like to use one, because I’m smiling, just thinking about it.
