Like a challenging or arduous yoga posture, there is a resilience that comes from the process of moving through stressful situations. When we are in the thick of it we might feel resentful and place blame on others. But more often than not - once we get to the other side – what is left is gratitude.
Mountains are created from friction. Diamonds are the result of pressure. And you are the light that shines even in the darkest of shadows.
May we all find a space inside of us to be grateful for everything this Thanksgiving – the joy and the blessings but also the pain and the struggle. Without them, we could not truly know love.
