Today's #TQOTD got a little deep when we decided to ask you about the biggest moment in your life.  The one that changed everything forever.  It could be when you had a baby, or it could have been when you dropped out of school.  What single moment changed your life forever?

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What single event altered the entire course of your life? And how?

  • Having my son at 17 .. Change my course in my life but I had to put somebody else before myself for the first time in my life.
  • Falling in love 😕 … He leads me on and didn't feel the same … Don't trust peeps now
  • The single course that change my life was my mom dying when I was 15. I often wonder what my life direction would have been had she not passed.
  • Unfortunately- my Divorce!
  • Went back to school and graduated now working in the medical field doing something I love. Wanting to back again and become a Nurse Practioner in Cardiology.
  • #tqotd. Feb 14, 1991 changed the course of my life forever. It's the day my adoption was finalized. I usually think it was for the best.
  • #TQOTD Creating an account on the dating site OK Cupid. That's where I met the crazy love of my life. I swore I'd never get married again, then I met him.
  • Definitely when I was adopted. It changed my life completely because if I wouldn't have ended up with my parents now, I would probably be a pregnant drug addict in jail (not an exaggeration.) I graduate this spring and am going to put on my cap: "Everything I do, I do for them. Thanks, mom and dad." (Sorry that was long)
    My mom died when I was 16 yrs old. At that point, I changed from being an innocent optimistic kid to A hardened and disconnected Being. just existing and unable to get close to anyone
  • On June 16, 2016 I was hit while riding my motorcycle. Had many injuries most that healed. But my left eye was damaged so it stays dilated all the time. Which makes it hard to see in sunlight. Also lost over 80% of my memory. All is good life goes on
  • tqotd for Connie & Fish: so the event that changed my life course was coming out to my parents. the consequences on that are lasting, and it forced me to learn to be more confident in myself, regardless of what is going on
  • What single event altered my life??? Walking away from a bowling alley. My now husband (had only been seeing my husband a few weeks) and I went with friends and when we pulled up I saw my junior high/high school crush (who wanted to date me, but was to old PARENTS 🙄 anywho I asked my now husband to leave because I know I would have pursued him.. Still with my hubby after 21 years and 5 kiddos.
  • Today is actually my 16 year anniversary of being clean from methamphetamine. That was definitely my life altering event!!!
  • Tqotd: In my mid 20's I had 3 part-time jobs and got fired from 1. It made me sick of having "jobs" so I went back to college, earned my bachelor's and now have a career.
  • #tqotd when I was younger I was molested by my best friends dad and after 2 years I finally got the courage up to tell my parents who didn't believe me which made it ten times worse after lots of therapy and 28 years later I'm all better but still see the world and my parents through a different light but every day is a battle and I have to fight through the fear and hope no one ever has to go through this
  • Watching my brother cross the finish line at Fifth Third River Bank Run. This event changed my life because shortly thereafter I decided that I needed to get in shape and start running. A year-and-a-half later I ran my first marathon 3 years after that I'm at the love of my life running a year after that I married her. that is The Abridged version there's a lot of other crap in the middle LOL love you guys have a great morning
  • Meeting my husband in high school. Although it is not a super awesome example, when I look back and think how different my life would be if I had not met him it just blows my mind. I am so thankful for having him by my side these last 12 years.
  • I have my Masters degree in nursing education. It was my goal my whole life and I never would've achieved it with him.
  • TWOD...Divorcing my ex-husband. He was dragging me down a dark rabbit hole and I knew I wanted better. When I was married to him I had a high school degree, now
  • I have my six-year-old adopted son in the car with me this morning. He just very happily exclaimed, Connie's adopted two. That's cool Mom. Thanks for making his day
  • My father being murdered when I was 4, altered the course of my life but also the lives of others. He was a pastor, so the lives of his parents, children, and parishioners were forever changed.
  • Text question of the day! Brimmy here and my submission for this is that if I hadn't worked on internet radio and interviewed bands, I would have never met the love of my life!
  • I just started listening and love you guys!! My MAJOR life change is that I had been told since I was 19 that I had a slim to no chance of having kids, which I was just fine with me. Fast forward to 2015, I was in the process of a divorce and met someone new... In 7 weeks I was pregnant, WHILE ON BIRTH CONTROL! I had my first son at age 37. 15 months later I had my 2nd son, WHILE ON BIRTH CONTROL! If I could do over, to be honest, I wouldn't do it again... but I love my boys more than anything in this earth. Here are 2 of the cutest little boys you've ever seen! People who don't know me stop me at the store to admire them... It's kinda weird.
  • Wrestlemania 23! The theme was WrestleMania all grown up. It was my 1st solo trip to Detroit my best friend came with me and it our lives have never been the same. It was our culmination that we were no longer kids, we were all grown up. We still are friends but after the show, he started college I went to work and life got in the way with wife and kids and such. We both still enjoy wrestling but he refuses to go to another show because he will never be able to recreate the magic that we both felt that night.
  • The event that altered the course of my life was my dad walking out on my family when I was just 2 weeks into my freshman year of high school. this caused anxiety and depression to show up, trust issues and social issues I dealt with for most of my teenage years as well as a bad eating choice that led to me gaining over 110 lbs that first year. A habit that continued well into my early 20s. A good outcome that came from this was an amazing bond with my mother and I found a passion for baking, as well as a love for working out and I, am now in the best shape of my life and I have lost 175lbs over the last 4 years!
  • When I was 15 I woke up one morning unable to use one of my legs or feel it because of a rare neurological disease. I spent over 18 months learning to walk again. I can now walk without feeling in my leg. This has made me away more empathetic and compassionate person and I am now going into nursing to help other people. I don't think I would be the same person I am today if this wouldn't have happened and although scary I wouldn't change it.
  • Spring break '98 "go loco in Acapulco". On our way there, I met and instantly HATED my sister's roommate's boyfriend's brother who ultimately reached out to me when we got back. Flash forward 20 years we are happily married (for 17 years) with 4 kids. #dontjudgethebookbyitscover #gavetheguyasecond chance
  • Text question of the day: October 15th, 2017. My then fiance was electrocuted at work. I was 7 months pregnant on bed rest. He Couldn't walk the talk or go to the bathroom. It was devastating. He very easily could have died and we were so lucky. After this happened, I scheduled the very first courthouse wedding I could to marry him. The hardest year of my life, lots of therapy and lots of tears later he is back to work walking like normal!
  • Text ? Of the day. Getting involved with the wrong man and ending up in jail. I was a good girl gone bad. All grown up and an upstanding citizen. I did this right out of college. I can't help but wonder where I would be in my life if that didn't happen.
  • Sitting next to my husband in a college class. I had never done anything like it to pursue a boy. I was kind of a player back then. I didn't plan on getting married before I met him. We have been married for five years. 😍
  • The event that changed my life was having a baby at 16, I meet the man of my dreams working at a factory now we are married and expecting our 4th baby, can't imagine how my life would h an e turned out.
  • My mother and my siblings had to move because the church was now in need of a new pastor. My father's death, split the church in half after the new pastor took over, many left.
  • The day that changed my life was April 13, 2018, when I left my husband due to verbal and emotional abuse
  • I'm with Connie. Adopted at 4 weeks old. Recently met my bio Mom and see how different my life would have been. I went to private school my whole life and lived with unconditional love. Having been raised by my bio mom, we both decided I would have had 5 kids with 5 different dad's and sleeping with the same men as my mom. Hot mess alert!! Today I'm married to the same man for 20 years!
  • TQOTD - THE EVENT THAT CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER WAS WAKING UP TO FIND A NAKED DRUNK CRACKED-OUT PERSON SLEEPING ON MY COUCH WHO WE DID NOT KNOW.

  • Tqotd: My life changed when my husband joined the fire service. He's been a firefighter for about 5 years now. It's definitely not easy, since we have 3 kids. Although it's hard, it has taught me to be patient, understanding and be a strong woman:) I would have never known how strong of a person and mother I could be, had he net joined.
  • My oldest son. I got pregnant very young and at the time was on a course that likely would have ended my life. Drugs and abusive violent relationships. When I got pregnant it was a wake up call. I got away from the abuse and drugs. He saved my life
  • I was fired from bartending in college after serving a girl using her sisters ID. After that I got a job out of the service industry and finally started taking school seriously. I graduated, moved, and now am making good money. If it wasn't for me getting fired I probably would still be bartending.

  • If I hadn't joined the navy I wouldn't have my son or wouldn't have met my husband!
  • The day I met my father changed my life forever. I had always been told how worthless he was, but I didn't believe that.

After 4 years in the service with my injury, I was honorably discharged. 7 years after our first son was born, our second son was born. I still struggle with my injury and the pain is permanent. However, if I were able to go back and join the Army again, I would. If it weren't for that one choice I wouldn't have my husband and 2 beautiful boys. 😉

  • 11/5/14 in high school I had a girlfriend who I loved dearly and we had been together for almost 3 years. It turned out that didn't wanna be with me, so she made a list of acts and called the police. I was served with a rape charge. I'm 23 now and clear of all of it but still recovering. If it weren't for that dingus of a girl, I would've never learned what love is or can be... or what cocaine was but hey I'm clean.
  • 3 years ago I met my husband (we got married Oct 20 of this year) and I was struggling with a severe eating disorder. My family was trying so hard to help me, but he really pulled me out of that dark place, encouraged me to get into therapy, etc. Scary to think of what would've happened if I hadn't met him, or if I'd even be around.

  • TQOOD: had I not made the decision to switch schools between middle and high school, I wouldn't have met the love of my life and had my beautiful baby girl, I probably would have struggled heavily at the school I was at and probably not finished college and get the degree and career I currently have.
