People say bad things come in threes, but let’s get real, it is more like sevens and eights. Life isn’t easy. The large blue chairs in my office know this all too well. They get the plop, the flop, the tears, and legs that swing over the side. They hear questions like “Why me?” “Why now?” “Can you believe this?” “Do I laugh or cry at this point?”
The silence that follows these actions usually come simultaneously to a Kleenex grab. We have all had times like this where it feels the world just won’t give us a break. This is the time we question ourselves and the people around us.
Now comes the time to allow your resilience to shine through. What has happened becomes far less important to how you are going to handle it. Suffering is an opportunity to slip to the belly of your pain and make it vehicle for change. It is an opportunity to put your best self out there.
Everyone is going through something.
Be Kind. Be Gentle. Carry a Hardhat.
