It’s so important to see things as they are, but most people see things in their lives (and see themselves) as so much WORSE than they actually are.
I am all about getting honest and real with ourselves and each other. I am all about feeling ALL our beautiful feelings. And, for me, the REALITY is that there is also always choice, always a gift, always creative solutions (and, yes, sometimes we need to get *really* creative), always a way to turn pain into purpose, always some sparkle of goodness, always a way to make meaning and miracles out of the seeming mess.
And. This. Is. Amazing.
We humans have SUPERPOWERS in this!
If we over-focus our energy on how challenging it is, we miss out on how good it ALSO is and how GREAT it CAN BE!
