Describe a defining moment or series of events that have affected your life this year.
Everything you do affects your life in some way. So I don't think I look back on the year and select a defining moment or series of events to write about. A lot has happened this year, after all. I much prefer to look at the year as a whole and be hopeful that the decisions I've made and the things that have happened will make 2011 a good year.
