When it comes down to actual “Ah-ha” and clarity moments most people don’t have many recollections. Having one in the first place is generally a positive experience. Have you ever had that experience where everything fits together and is clear?
For example, let us say you are a dancer and learn a new complicated dance move. If you not only had a
learning experience, but had a sense of clarity, it could be termed an actual “Ah-ha” moment.
I’ve had quite a number of these clarity moments. For example:
1) Learning how to ride a two-wheel bike for the first time
2) Driving my Dad’s Red Mitsubishi Eclipse. It was not only my first time learning how to drive a stick shift, but my Dad trusted me to drive his car. That was a huge moment for me!
3) Probably the biggest “Ah-ha” moment occurred when I was diagnosed with Bipolar Type 1. That was ½ of the story. The diagnosis was ½ the story and the other part happened around 10 years later. Let me give you a little background…
For years, my Psychiatrist worked with me to find the right “cocktail” of medicine. I say “cocktail” because my doctor finally found a couple of mood stabilizers, an antipsychotic and a benzodiazepine. My doctor made sure that all those medicines worked in conjunction with one another.
Towards the end of treating me like a guinea pig, I had the longest road of stability up until that point that I ever had.
However, an event occurred I was not prepared for. I went severely manic. After I balanced out and came down from my mania, the other ½ part of my “Ah-ha” was swift and to the point. I realized that medicine alone would not get me to the spot I wanted. I was going to need something more. I’d have to dig deeper and find other ideas, in addition to taking my medicine.
I had been experimenting with ways to deal with maintaining my health for years before my big epiphany.
My journey was a science experiment. I switched one variable around at a time, while looking at the outcome. Sometimes switching a variable worked and other times it did not. I decided to put my findings into a product and show you.
