The best lessons can be found when we are facing unanticipated change and loss. It is a moment between moments where we are lost and searching, broken and vulnerable, wanting and open. In those moments between moments we learn who we really are and what we are capable of.

When you find yourself in that moment created in the space after a sudden change, try to see the opportunities wrapped within the loss. Growth is so much easier when we are unencumbered by our usual habits and assumptions. Rather than immediately seeking protection from the pain, be with it and be vulnerable. It is in those moments between where our potential resides.

    I think this is about “embracing uncertainty and change”. It can be an opportunity to realize your potential as you point out.

    For once I can say, yes, I have done and am doing just this. It is what is getting me through the sadness and loss and giving me something of happiness and growth.

    I’m trying to see all the muck as a blessing. It seems to be the key to eventual enlightenment–although I prefer to learn through joy . . .
