It is the human condition to seek adventure. To push boundaries. This choice will always lead to things that we cannot control.
When we are not getting the results we want, when we realize our vulnerability, when we realize that sometimes no matter how hard we try and the sacrifices we make, life will bring us disappointment, fear and we are not in control of it, it sucks.
If we are lucky, there are people who love us and help us during those times.
If we are wise, we pick ourselves up and remember who we want TO BE.
If we are open, we ask ourselves what is the lesson here?
If we are generous, we remember to be grateful for everything that is okay. Grateful for friends, health, capacity, choices.
If we are spiritual, we get still. We listen to our heart, not our head. We listen to all that is right in our world - beyond the fear.
If we are courageous we own our part in the struggle - the decisions we made that hurt ourselves and others... not from shame, but from s place of recognizing there is still growing and learning to do.
If we are strong, we love those around us, our life... just as it is, and in doing so we find we have forgiven.
