It isn’t necessary to be raised by hoarders to learn organization, survive agitated depression to learn compassion, live with a loved one who gaslights & deflects to master the art of seeking & offering clarification, or experience a restraining order from a mentally unwell young adult to know the pain of “only as happy as your most unhappy child” . . . but having traveled that path, I can attest to my awakening: it softens the heart and sharpens the mind to win the battle for one’s soul in the face of these, along life’s sacred journey.
Some view challenges as obstacles or distractions from balance & wellness; others embrace them as invitations to self-improvement. You are defined by what you do with opportunities along your journey rather than by the ‘opportunities’ themselves.
“Blessings are curses turned inside out. Credit the light for shadows of doubt. Without the ‘source’ no ‘block’ can be. Behind each cloud the Sun shines free.”
